Quilty Little Secret!

This morning I had to get up early (BAH!) and leave the house to go into town. The upside I went out for Lunch with the Older Giant to The Toby Carvery. We printed off a voucher so we could get our meals slightly cheaper. Though the actual price is decent. The main meal is £5.95, drinks and such are extra. They carve your meat for you then you can take unlimited veg, Yorkshire puddings(which are huge!) and stuffing. We went for the kingsize option which is £1.50 extra. You get more meat and 2 chipolata sausages. Now I wish I had bought my camera with me!

I got all the packages I needed to send off posted! So whoever I owe a package too in less than two weeks expect something through your mail box.

Upon getting home I was distracted reading a book, which I had bought with me for the bus journey. I was hand quilting then reading, then back to hand quilting. I had only 2 blocks left to do, but with the reading it took a while to finish.

The Culprit!

The quilt with finished quilting. I went around the squares in each Granny Block

I actually really love this quilt and am glad it will be staying in the house! The prints took me sometime to get(after a missing order)...which you can find on this page. All I have to do is the binding and make a label to go on the back, then convince the Giants to sign it..and Mother....

Hand quilting is actually really relaxing. One day I'll try using Jano for this job, but until that day comes it's the good old needle and Perle.

Today I'm linking up with

There and Back  and  Pieceful Life-Show off Friday

Siya'll tomorrow =D


  1. The quilting really does make an interesting design on the backing. I figured out your lunch in dollars and that's only a little over $10. I keep thinking pounds are worth what they used to be, and it seemed expensive, but then it isn't!

  2. Love the granny squares they are one of my most favorite blocks. Tanya and I have been talking about doing on in batiks. Thanks for linking up.

  3. I have never done granny squares or hand quilting. Yours ALMOST make it tempting. Nice job.

  4. Love the granny sqs quilt. I must make one too.. It's on my todo list :)

  5. Toby Carver is fab! I love that you've used so many favourite prints. Hope your dad likes it!

  6. the grannies look great. And love the hand stitching. I find it so relaxing and only FMQ if I need a quilt in a rush

  7. Your quilt is coming along so nicely! I'm sure your father will love it! Thanks for linking up to The Handmade Parade!
