Nested windmill table quilt.






A couple of days a go I had a little accident at a quilt shop. Not a local one but one in Mid Wales called the Cross Patch. Never been but I was looking for a bag pattern called Sherbet by Melly and Me and they happen to stock it. It's an Australian pattern. Anyway, my bags patterns (yes, I order a couple, well 3 actually) duly arrived along with a pack of charm squares which I need like a hole in the head and a free pattern for a table centre.

Now, we are moving across to Shropshire so I should be packing boxes and things but I thought to myself that a nice new table centre for the new house would go down a treat. simple enough pattern by the looks of it but Ha! It has been the most fiddly, time consuming little blighter that I have done in ages and ages but apart from the binding it is finished after 3 days. I could have made a full sized bed quilt in the time it has taken me to do this little bugger.

Anyway, pics.

Packaging supplies constitute a large amount of shipping supplies. Generally, packaging supplies include boxes, bags, bubble wraps, edge protectors, envelopes, and mailers.

A lot of work, but a really pretty result missus.

So you won't be making a king-sized one then?
