Linen and Shot Cottons

I really liked this when I started.
It was all pretty and each block made a little story.
I used Kaffe shot cottons and Kokka's Heather Ross designs.
But when it came to putting it together it became a bit messy.

Overall, I guess it's okay.
Sons no1 & 3 said they liked it which is surprising because they really don't notice much except the TV and their food. They said it without me even asking! Maybe because it was on the dining room floor all day and they had to tread carefully around it to get from the TV to the kitchen.
It is really big. A full single bed I think. I might send it to be quilted because I didn't pin it or anything which means it probably won't stretch flat. The shot cotton and the linen is very mobile.
A happy few hours were spent sewing and that is just what I needed this weekend.


  1. Lovely combination of fabrics! Glad to hear it even got "approval" from your sons! Have a good week ahead!

  2. I love it!! It's an exciting combination of colors and rectangles all fitting together. I could look at it for hours, discovering lots of hidden treasures, I'm sure.

  3. Fun quilt! YOu never cease to amaze me with you original designs. How is the pattern company coming? :-)

  4. I think you did a great job putting all the blocks together! Delightful!

  5. oooh, I like this! I guess we just get sick of looking at our own quilts, right?

  6. I'm not sure exactly why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I'll
    check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  8. When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

  11. I seldom leave a response, but i did some searching and wound up here "Linen and Shot Cottons".

    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you
    tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it seem like some of the remarks
    look like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I'd like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  13. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more
    in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
