Unpick that border!

Hi y’all,

I’ve been unpicking the border on the pug quilt today. The pieced border that I had originally planned looked awful. It’s all part of the job. However it meant that my measurements were now completely out of whack. I spent last night with a calculator, a pen, and a ream of paper trying to work it out.


When I got up this morning I realised that all I had to do was add an extra 1/4in to one of the inner borders and all was fixed size-wise. Duh. Sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees.

Today I’ve sewn 45 blocks for the new border and it is the happiest quilt I’ve made by far! This one’s a good one!

A couple of days ago I posted that I was going to sell some of my sample quilts. Thank you to everyone who messaged me. I’m sorry I haven’t replied to some (a lot) of you yet. I was completely taken by surprise at the response I received. To be honest I was unprepared for it and I’ve stuck my head in the sand a little.

I will make a list of names, in the order you have contacted me and when I price everything up I’ll message you.

A Pug’s Life

Bright, fun, happy, and almost done. I LOVE this quilt! We are still having issues with our internet connection. We have a connection but every time one of our neighbours logs in, we get logged out – an it happens dozens of times a day. Please bear with us til we get a fix. toni xx

March-Easter Giveaway

Hi y’all,

I’m not sure where to start, now that we have our internet connection back I have a lot to catch up with. Emails and enquiries are slowly trickling through, so if you don’t hear back from me by mid-week please message me again.

I didn’t get to finish the pug quilt on the weekend, the hole in the roof took precedence I’m afraid, but I’m almost finished. The hole in the roof is still a hole LOL but the ceiling material has been removed and repaired. My camera is dead, water has got into the lenses and it can’t be fixed :o<
