Ta dah! my pattern is done

I am delighted to say that I have finished writing my first ever quilt pattern.

I am yet to put the finishing touches to it ( photograph of the completed quilt) etc but the hard stuff is done.

Here is the completed flimsy  - don’t you love Josephine my cat peeking out from underneath.

Pinwheel flimsy

pinwheel 1

This is called perfect pinwheels and I am going to be selling it in my ETSY store as a PDF.  BUT  As its my 50th birthday in two weeks time I am giving away 5 patterns to the first 5 people to leave a comment on here (that would like a copy).

I just need to pin and quilt the top and photograph it properly and then the pattern is done.

This week I also did a little red work stitchery.  This is the centre block of a red work stitchery that I have from Teddlywinks

block 1 teddy Last but by no means least are two more stunning table runners from the table runner swap.

I love tumbling blocks and the very lucky Cathy received this one from Wendy, beautiful photography too from both of the ladies
