I started cutting out my shop hop quilt just before Christmas.
Put away everything till after New Year(that’s what I thought)
Just after Christmas I put my machine ready.
Well I started sewing on Monday the 30/12/2013!
Today I finished off the middle square!
6 x square one
6 x square two
Go to the bottom and top
There we are!
Still need to make 4 corners with Dresden Plate design!
I made it, my deadline was today.
The lady who ordered 3 king single quilts picked up the last one this afternoon!
Now I am going to relax a bit till next year.
The last quilt
red and white, white and red
Red on white

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!
From the side
I love the Kiwiana material! Looks cool!
Inspire Me Monday #95 – Week Of October 27, 2013
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
Half Square Triangle Swap
5 shops participated
4 shops in USA
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.

This quilt was pieced by me and professionally quilted.
Making a quilt is easy if you know how!

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.
First all the pieces of material
Measure and cut the pieces.
Work them together.
And there you go

The first one was the red one
second one is the same but in black.
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
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.
