WIP Thursday - Week 44 - Sandwiching Mrs K's quilt

Another week has slipped by and once again my WIP Wednesday post is falling on a Thursday! Opps! Lately though each week that passes, reminds me that it is a week closer to school finishing, term 4 is only 9 weeks long! I have to get Mrs K's quilt done by the end of the term! So I picked a light lilac tone on tone boader and then sat down to sandwich it. I can't get my little bowl of pins out without Grace coming over to help. "Can I do it too Mummy? Nanny lets me!" So I let her pin away on the extra wadding bit at the side. I pondered if she was going to be a quilter earlier this week, I think so! As you can see by the tape, I'm going for just a straight diagonal quilting pattern, keeping it simple!

WOW Helen...that is lovely...very simple but sooooo effective!!

I love the fact the Grace is turing out to be a quilter...how long do you think till she will want to make a quilt of her own??

That's looking great Helen. I hope our girls will grow up to love craft as much as us!

What a lovely assistant you have! Now prepare yourself for sharing your stash... Or worse; she might like fabrics you hate!

She will be a quilter for sure. How could she not, coming from a family of such talented quilting gals.

I wonder if Grace is going to take after Nanny and leave pins in her sewing???
