October hopes


September wasn't really my month but look what's in store for October! I'm so excited about this quilt top. I picked it up today from quilting service. My friend done a fab job on it and I love it! She does quilt for others and uses short arm. Every time I visit her and chat over coffee it's like recharging my batteries. She is my quilting guru for sure.


I'm making this my October goal. I missed my September goal which was to finish Christmas cushion. I have only managed to quilt the back side of it.


Pebbles in my interpretation looks like rocks! Yeah sure, that was my intention, lol.


I definitely need to practice MORE. Once I hang this quilt on wall I'll have it as motivation to improve myself.

Take this as September round up since that's all I achieved. The credit of quilting goes to my friend Monika. Plus we have collected 112kg of horse chestnuts so far. These are collected by school and huntsman will feed the deer in winter with them.

  24. Your friend's quilting is fantastic! I love the 'starblock' in the corner.

    I like your pebbles! Personally, I prefer them when they come out a little larger, like rocks, than teeny tiny ones because they have a really nice texture!

  25. That is really good motivation to improve. I should just get in the habit of practicing every week I guess.

  26. Well that quilt just went to the next level! I especially like the echo drips around the orange. You're still such an inspiration!
