Some Minor Finishes

Two quilts that have been hanging around are now finished.
Parson Gray Fabric Quilt
 Finished in May 2013
Started in July 2012

Scrappy Blues. Started in May 2011 
and finished in May 2013.

This is a quilt that is almost finished.
It as made from 48 squares of fabric texta drawings by students at my school.
One of the boys is going overseas and leaving us
so we decided we would make him a present to
take away.
Not quite finished but you can get the idea. 
It is at school waiting for one last drawing to be added in the top right hand corner.
The binding is on now.
Besides these quilts I have been doing a bit of knitting.
 The back of a jumper
Half way through a shawl.
I hope these two will not take me as long as the quilts to finish.
I can't knit for too long at one time.
My hands get really sore but I am determined to keep them going.
I meet up with the knitting girls on Monday so I am encouraged to have something to show by then.
I do eventually finish everything but I just can't seem to stick at any one thing for a period of time.


  1. Well done on the two finishes, they turned out gorgeous. And the leaving quilt for your student is fantastic; what a wonderful teacher you are! And look at your knitting! I didn't even know that you can knit, never mind such intricate patterns.

  2. The quilts are lovely. I have a finishing schedule similar to yours! Don't feel bad!

  3. Wow MeliB you have had some wonderful finishes here and some lovely knitty creations happening! xo
