Mum's Quilt

It is my mum's 70th birthday on Monday. I have been collecting these blue fabrics for a while now and saw the pattern in a book by Leanne Beasley...see other post below for the details of it. Leanne did her quilt in a totally different colour way. Im not a blue person but I am very pleased with how the quilt has come up.. I quilted it myself.. I haven't done the best job of it but it will do. I used a variegated thread of different shades of blue....the wadding is a cotton iron on interfacing ..... I have to say this is a fantastic product. I have never used it before and it works wonderfully. When you wash the quilt the fabric comes away from the wadding.

Im also a pincushion lover and Im a fan of Molly Blossom designs
This is the Milliners Hat Pattern made up. I just love working with felt.

This was a trial of the pattern

I just had to take a picture from a few different angles..

Take care

Until the next creation

I have not heard of the iron on wadding but it sounds great.

It looks fantastic!! Gosh what a lucky Mum you have to be able to keep cosy under such a pretty quilt. She'll absolutely love it. Isn't it a great feeling when the binding is finally finished? Just fabulous.

Lisa, your Mum's quilt is gorgeous. I hope she has a wonderful 70th birthday, she will love her quilt.
Where did you get the iron on wadding, have never heard of it.
Those felt pincushions are gorgeous.

Your Mum's quilt is stunning - I love those blues you've used. Your wee pincushion is SO cute, a real wee sweetie.

I hope your Mum loved her gorgeous new quilt.
That pincushion is adorable.. I reckon I could make it without a pattern even!
If I ever get time that is!
