3 :: The Living Room Floor…

Alison's quilt basted


…is getting a splash of colour, albeit a temporary one.  I have just enough space in front of the piano to tape down a quilt to get the layers sandwiched together.


Alison's quilt on floor 

I find it incredibly back-breaking though, crawling around putting the pins in.  And, it is REALLY annoying when you’ve just crept into the middle on your knees and someone rings the doorbell!


Alison's matching corners

There are some pretty good matching seams on this one, even if I do say so myself!


Quilting: the perfect hobby for cold weather.


  1. Yes, and you get to sit under it while you quilt it. Perfect!

    I think that this latest one is just beautiful. Really lovely colour scheme as always.

  2. So gorgeous! And definitely qualifies as another Splash of Color. K x

  3. I agree nothing like sitting quilting when it's cold outside. Not so good in the summer though, but that doesn't stop us does it?
    I do love your colours.

  4. You have a fantastic eye for colour. This jumps off the page; so exuberant!

    (I secretly hate the phone. I resent its demanding, shrill ring no matter WHAT I'm doing.)

  5. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous. I love the colours. I agree with you, getting down on the floor is hard work on the back.
    Have a lovely weekend,

  6. Just gorgeous. Meanwhile, on this side of the world, I am turning my air conditioner to a ridiculously cool temperature in order to make quilts.

  7. How do you manage to make them so quickly?! x
