WOYWW

Just a quickie for all those WOYWW crafters who love a bit of textile work!

I managed to create a lovely little duvet cover using the patchwork pieces and some of the bedroom curtain fabric. I am not really a quilter and do find difficulty in keeping my seams straight and matched up.
I think it looks OK and I am sure its recipient will love it, which is all that matters.

It's another busy week for me so I am dashing to supermarket shop and then get down to cleaning my kitchen floor - I opened a wine box last night and the spout squirted red wine all over the place!! Yuk! Luckily it hasn't stained but it is still a bit sticky so I need to get the mop and bucket out!

Have a great week.
Thanks for calling by.

x Jo

Mm, Jo, doesn't it drive you nuts how the sticky can take few cleans to get rid of it. I really hate it if you do a spill just after you've cleaned it anyways. Love your duvet very pretty and not sure my stitching would pass muster, but yours looks great.
Thanks for sharing your inspiration, and happy WOYWW !

Listen Hun, you Ain't German, and In my experience they are the most exacting in terms of quilt craft and matched seam/straight lines. In this ex pat Brits opinion the quilt is magnificent.. and babies can't see that kind of detail for years....by which time the quilt is a one inch square of Love Dub that must never be lost (especially on a bus)...

Thanks for visiting and showing the finished duvet. I love those colors. My DH just ask a favor of giving him a ride to town, but when I don't know. Once I leave, 1/2 my day is wasted away. Have fun cleaning the floor, I'm not following suit. Enjoy the days ahead.

Hi Jo, good job the wine didn't get you, it's a nightmare stain to remove! Love the quilt, I have the same problem with seams, lol. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xxx

Oh no! Red wine disaster! The worse kind. Poor wine, such a waste. . .LOL! Glad it didn't stain, it must have been hard to have to wipe up all that wine and toss it in the garbage! I know I would be sad! The duvet cover is beautiful, no one would know that you weren't a quilter! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #43

You're a crafting genius kiddo...matched up seams just don't matter! The quilt is gorgeous and will be loved anyway :-D
Hugs, LLJ 4 xxxx

All that matters is the quilt is made with love. I think it is gorgeous. Spilling wine no no no. #2

There is nothing better than a handmade blanket for a new baby. They will treasure it forever! Very nice! Dorlene #42

Thinking of you cleaning that floor! Not a favourite job of mine but so satisfying when it sparkles (or used to, flooring is not shiny these days since we had the new kitchen).
Love your quilt, am sure you are a very straight sewer.

It's always great to see a finished project and the quilt looks fab! The thought of cleaning my kitchen floor, or for that matter, my bathroom floors, always fills me with dread. It is my most hated job and I perhaps don't do it as often as I should. I feel the time has come! Thanks for the cleaning inspiration. Thanks for sharing and have a great week - EmbroidRage #5 x

Oh no....did you lick the floor first? !!!! Lovely little quilt, really will be well received. I cannot believe that you've ever sewn a wonky seam!
