Quilt Top

Hi all,

I've been busy sewing this afternoon and have at last finished my first quilt top ...

This photo shows the truer colours ...

It's not perfect but I'm quite pleased with it.  I've got the wadding and just plain fabric for the back (to make it easy!) but the next dilemma is I've absolutely no idea how I'm going to quilt it!  I'll take it to my quilting group on Wednesday and ask the other (experienced) ladies their advice.

I had a stall at the local school's summer fayre on Saturday and I have to say I did better than I'd expected.  The Christmas Fayre is always busy with folk looking for pressies and stocking fillers but the summer one is usually quiet.  My best sellers were the fabric bookmarks, the children's ones I showed in an earlier post and I also made some adult ones ..

and right at the end a (very nice) lady bought three of my children's activity packs, so all in all it was 2 hours well spent.

 Okay, that's me for tonight, I'm gasping for a cuppa!

Linking to Handmade Monday.

Thanks for popping in, see you all soon.

Take care

Suze xx
