More Finishes

Market Day is finished.

Pam's Pocket Patchwork Sew- Along was great fun. See her posts - Airing of the Quilts where she shares photos from participants around the world.  

I hand quilted the circle quilt - BIG stitches, using Perle 8 thread.
Made more EPP stars and a long 17 1/2" heat pack, love these for relieving tension in the neck and shoulders.  I have made several over the years. In Summer when its very hot I put them in the deep freeze, perfect for cooling down.  I filled the bag with 1kg of barley. Wheat or rice can also be used.

 I ran out of batting and bought more on Tuesday. I have now pin basted Happy Scrappy Spring. Slowly getting there. More lovely Sew-Alongs here and here


  1. great finishes.... I don't have anything new to show... or tell about recently.... Love the rice/corn/barley/flax bags, but mostly in the winter (which is coming our way soon!)

  2. Your finished Market Day looks fantastic.
    Greetings Grit
