Well, he loved it. He loved the label, He loved the quilt and it matches with his lounges too. We laid it on top of the quillow and this is where we left him. Snuggled with his quillow & quilt.
Dad you have a heater.....
Thank you to everyone for your previous kind comments about this quilt.
It was so nice when my Dad praised me on ALL my wonderful sewing.
My Mum would have been so proud of me too.
The only daughter who didn't do sewing as an elective in High School.
Now this is why I love to sew xx

Thank you to everyone for your previous kind comments. I've nearly finished attaching the label to my Dad's quilt and the bandaid is off my finger and it is getting better. I do receive a few "non-reply" bloggers, particularly Kellie??? She doesn't have a blog but is a regular commenter on my blog. Kellie could you let me know your email address so I can reply to your regular lovely comments. Hugs Fiona

Junie Moon has also made one recently.... and has added some links for the pattern if your interested.
It was also such a lovely Autumn day today, we decided to take out puppy dog to our local Leash-Free park. Our dog can't go leash-free as he runs away and doesn't come back.

Just some of the many projects that were created, started or finished on the weekend. It was so nice to see how everyone had all their UFO's out to finish. We won't mention how old some peoples were.......
I finished putting the border around my Moda Spring Fling quilt.
That was all my projects from the weekend. I thought I would get more done but it's amazing how much time they all take. We did stop to eat and sleep - sometimes.
Thank you to the Club Quilt ladies for the most enjoyable weekend. We are booked again for next year. Count me in for sure. xx
Here we all are, hard at work, busy making our beautiful quilts.
This was my first project for the weekend.
I'll be back with more beautiful photos of quilts and scenery.
Now I must get to bad to my day job.

Of course our Mum's weren't forgotten about at Club Quilt either. A present of chocolates wrapped in this gorgeous fabric.
I've been madly cutting up more flannel pj's for more quilts. This is the next one in progress. The keyhole pattern from my previous post. So much more cutting to do before I go to bed.
I hope everyone else had a lovely Mother's Day too or just a great weekend for all you Mum's in the Northern Hemisphere. xx

I picked up the latest addition of Homespun today and look who is featured. Leanne Beasley WOW! There is also a great quilt pattern Autumn Leaf Flurry by Brenda Smith of Serendipity Patchwork & Quilting featuring Keyhole Blocks. This is something I could use for all my flannel scraps. So much to look at. Goodnight, I'm off to bed with it now.

Boiled lollies and lollypops for the kids....... God knows they wouldn't like it if I bought fabric home for them..... Bonus, I get to eat them too.
This last photo is one of the generous prizes Kerry organisedon the weekend. A lovely Moda Homewares carry bag & purse with a diary as well.
Then I ducked into an op-shop that is not opened on weekends and look what I found. These great flannelette pyjamas for another quilt. I'd like to make a couple so this might be enough. They are in the wash now, so I'll take some closeup photos later.
It never ceases to amaze me, the generousity of bloggers around the world. Daisy Chain was cleaning up her sewing room/fabrics and found this fabric and of course thought of me. I will have to look at putting a quilt together using all my different dragonfly fabrics. I don't have any of this one.
