Yay! Finally I have a finish - my Comfort Quilt top.
After thinking that I would big stitch quilt this by hand I decided that I wouldn't get to it for ages so I'm going to have it machine quilted. I was feeling in need of having something finished this year. Now I just have to decide on which type of pattern. At first I was thinking of spirals...
And then I saw this quilting on Audrey's 'Lil Retro Baby' quilt and I really like the way she has used a clever mix of both horizontal and and vertical lines.

I think this is more in line (no pun intended) with the original design. What do you think? Opinions please!
I also have another small finish that I made with pieced scraps from the Comfort Quilt.
These tumblers were going to be a bag.
But then I decided I didn't really want a bag, I'd much rather have a box.
This clever little box has a that lid folds out to reveal a cutting mat...
and a preparation area.
Bits and bobs can fit inside snuggly.
Quite snazzy really and sooooo nice to have something finished!
I bought the box as a kit from Heather's Sewing Room - it comes with everything, just add your own fabric and lining paper.
Don't forget to help with me with some quilting advice :)
