Just after Christmas I put my machine ready.

Woohoo! Mystery quilt finished!

Wow, my mystery quilt’s top is finished.

I still need to do the backing and binding.

I started getting pieces to piece together since March.

For ten months I stitched my different pieces together.

Yesterday I started to put the pieces together

Today I did the borders and here it is.

Take a peak!

Next quilt!

I finished this one off a while ago.

I may as well share it as an inspiration.

At the end of last year  my favorite quilt shop

http://sawmillersquiltery.wordpress.com/

organised a

Half Square Triangle Swap

with USA

5 shops participated

4 shops in USA

and

 1 shop in New Zealand( Us )

It took some time before our swapped pieces came

but it was worth it.

We had 31 ladies who handed in their half square triangles.

Here is my finished quilt.

Quilt in the making

Making a quilt is easy if you know how!

I decided on December 18, 2012  t0  start my next quilt.

I still had the material from this years  Shop Hop.

In February we are having our Quilt Festival and you can only enter two quilts.

Here is the first square in the making.

WELL MADE craft market

Saturday November 24, 2012 I attended a new craft market in Upper Hutt.

It was worth it because I sold 3 throws and 1 cot quilt and also two bags.

Here is my table

I sold the following quilts

Dr Zues quilt

Rugby Quilt

Kiwiana Quilt

The last one I have only two squares

I have forgotten to take a photo because I finished it of the night  before  the market

That is it.

I am relaxing now for a day or two before starting the next project.

I’ll tell about the next project as soon as I have made some squares to show.
