Blueberry Crush!

Blueberry Crush, quilted and bound - a lap quilt, my version of Bonnie's Mystery Quilt Orange Crush! It was going to be a Comfort Quilt - now I am not so sure - maybe I have to have it as a cuddle quilt for the kids in the lounge room! Maybe I have to get extra busy and make another Comfort Quilt - though there is still one waiting to be quilted - hopefully I will be able to have a busy weekend at the machine and then make up my mind!

The novelty prints in the front are gifts from Dayna, of Scottie Acres Boutique - isn't she just gorgeous? - all because I was having a little cry about not being able to get pretty novelties over here! In the background, vintage cherry fabric I bought from The Twiddletails Store - I just love it!

Yesterday I went to our local patchwork group, Rockingham Quilters - Karen made this gorgeous whirlygig quilt in Thirties fabrics . It is going to be a Comfort Quilt for the Bushfire Relief - I think it is just so fresh and lovely!

Peggy has laid out this really cute Santa runner - all ready to be blanket stitched! Mmmm, nice idea for a Christmas gift, I am thinking!
Have a lovely weekend everyone - hugs♥

The whirlygig quilt is wonderful in the 30's fabrics and how nice to give away for a comfort quilt.

Your Blueberry Crush is great, I totally understand you are thinking of keeping it. Karens whirlygig is great too. But what I really fell in love with (love at first sight, hihi) is the Santa runner. Is it her own design or something that can be bought? I would love to have the pattern and make one or two...

Jantine Urban said...

I love your blueberry crush a lot! I can understand your mixed feelings about giving away or not! Don't know what you should do. Maybe just keep it and sewing another one to keep your conscious at bay??
