Now this one is one I am very pleased with, when I finished it I sat like the cat with a bowl of cream. I used McTavishing on this one in a BIG way, Karen McTavish, thank you thank you thank you. I just love doing the McTavishing, I find it fun and relaxing to do and you make it so clear to understand, I do hope you like my McTavishing as much as I do.
This is a Hexagon quilt but not the usual type. This is GIANT, made from half hexagons which were joined row by row, my days of doing those itty bitty ones are long gone but I wanted a hexagon quilt to make up for the one I casually threw in the bin….
There are a few photos of this one cos I love it so much. Skip through quickly if you get bored, I understand. That said, I look forward to comments on it, good or bad I can take them all.
Finally I have photos of the two new quilts I have recently finished, I have cropped them as you tend to get scenes of the garden which are not worth looking at!! All I have to do is work out how to get them from the photo file onto this page….wish me luck…Rebecca……
Phew, done it, getting the hang of this slow but sure. Anyway this is the first of the two quilts I have completed, I have called this one ”9 patch with flowers” well it’s pretty obvious isn’t it really.
I am not going to push my luck with this, I am posting these two separately as I don’t want to get half way through and it goes walk about if you know what I mean. See you in a mo then.

Yes here I am again, you may have forgotten me but I am still about. I cannot believe I haven’t blogged since LAST YEAR! I have some serious catching up to do. I do have an excuse, I have been ill, but I am not going into that as I have no wish to bore you now that I have your attention. I have got to try and re-acquaint myself as to how this works first folks, so please forgive any little hiccups for a few posts.
I hadn’t done any sewing/quilting for five months so there again you are going to have to excuse the lack of pictures for a short while. I am catching up with quilting now. I was actually from end January making and dabbling in my Postcards. My lovely friend Maggi Birchenough encouraged me to make several to get back into the swing of quilting. Start small she said and gradually you will want to do some proper quilting. Which did happen.
Maggi sadly passed away after a battle with Cancer, but she is still here with me in my sewing room, wherever I look there is a little something she has made me in the past, so she will never be forgotten. I am actually making a quilt with her fabulous hand dyed fabrics she did for me way way back. I managed to get the quilt top together and a photo sent to her via hubbies mobile phone so she could see it. Sadly she will not see it quilted. I will try my very best quilting on this one and I hope to enter it into FoQ this year, wish me luck, I haven’t started it yet as I am doing a few odd quilts I have laying around [UFO’s] to get into the swing of proper quilting again. I will try to find pictures of the fabrics I used for the quilt, if none appear here, you know I had no luck finding them.
The main reason for not finding them is I now have a laptop and talk about starting all over again. Nightmare!! My GD Rebecca is being so patient with me teaching me how to use it, I feel lost most of the time.
I can send you over to my POSTCARD Blog to view the Postcards I made whilst recuperating. There are a few, Maggi did laugh when I told her how many……at this stage I have to go and find the link to get you there….hang on a sec peeps…I’ll be back…
woohoo I found out how to do that without losing all my work. So whilst I am on a roll so to speak, I will close for now and hopefully find something for you to see next time you visit. Actually not as clever clogs as I thought, you will have to click on that address then click on the one that pops up to get to my Postcard Blog, sorry. Will get GD to show me how next time she is here.
