Over the bank holiday weekend we took my mother and mother-in -law for a short trip to Mumbles which was not a great success but I found this Burleigh vase in a charity shop. So every cloud does come with a silver lining.
I drove her to my sister's yesterday and we will take 2 week stints until we sort out a solution.
That's the whingeing bit out of the way.
I haven't made that much in the last 2 weeks but before my mother arrived I managed to finish this animal quilt top for a colleagues baby daughter
And this is the back
Now I have to quilt and bind it. I also have made one more star block.
This is a modified Nevada star. I missed out the bits in the 4 corners which make an additional pattern if you make repeated blocks.
I haven't blogged about the Festival of Quilts itself because the moment has gone but this quilt made me cry
And I realise I have to count my blessings.
