A great quilt update

It's been a while so thought I might show you where I'm at.

Sooooo many tiny stitches .... although probably not tiny by real quilter's standards - more of large and clumsy type of stitching.

The Roald Dahl/Quentin Blake row has a few less pics than originally intended (I bit off more than I could chew so dropped it down a few). You will need to use your imagination but my no. 1 son loves them (phew!).
The decapitated pheasant is politely waiting for it's head. Should arrive sometime soon.

The back is a mish mash of stitches - we like to use the term "abstract art".
And its very wrinkly - lucky we like that look ... that was the effect I was kind of aiming for ....
SO, if I keep trucking along it may even make it to his bed before the end of winter...maybe...
Hope you're all well and happily creating !


  1. it's looking fantastic, what a treasure it's going to be. You must be really pleased with how it's all come together.


  2. Jenny, looks fantastic, don't know how you have the patience and it will be well worth while by the looks of it. Can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. Wow!! i have not seen the previous posting of the quilt but it looks amazing. I love the colours and the stitching is awesome. Elizabeth X

  4. Looking amazing Jen!!!
    Hooray for quilts!

    PS How is the new swimming class going?

  5. That is some quilt you have there (and I LOVE the wrinkly look). Strangely I always imagine pheasants to be demure, polite types, regardless of head.


Go on, leave a message. It will make my day!
