The Dozen

As I have now learnt how to post things on the blog I thought I would add in the quilt from the first round as well.

This quilt is called The Dozen and is machine appliquied, pieced and embroided.

My Dad was always one for sayings and 'Cheaper by the Dozen' was a saying that was often mentioned in our house when we were growing up so this triggered an idea of a bygone age.

From my Book Shelf.

My Collection, what do I have a collection of?

Well I have a large collection of Blue fabric which is a colour I can never resist, some Teddies that when I go shopping always say please take me home, and lots of books.

After much thought the books became the winner, especially the children's ones. Over the years I have collected books to read to my 4 sons and books to share with the young children I have taught. My sister came home from England with the first couple of Mr Men books and that started the collection of the complete set of them.

So here is my quilt celebrating my collection of books, especially the Mr Men ones.

Jane s Quilt

Hi all just to let you know Jane is in the UK so will get sorted with her quilt on her return in the next couple of weeks.
I really am most impressed with all the lovely quilts aren't we all a lot of gatherers ?
Happy holidays to you all ,I will be doing just a bit of stitching for myself I think in between making samples.
