Finishes ~ 2008 and prior

I have done other stuff, just not always remembered to take a photo ~ and the number of works-in-progress I have is shaming…


The year of swaps. I did do other things, but bindings, etc weren’t completed until 2009, so that’s where they’re listed.

I got lots of things started, lots of fabric bought, but didn’t seem to complete anything but minis and smaller projects.

Miniature Booty Swap

Received: Marlene at Madam Quilter Sent: Dorothy at Rantala Rags

Chookyblue’s Secret Santa Christmas Swap


I sent Christmas fat quareters, chocolate (Cadbury’s of course), freckles, coasters and a bit of odds and endy stuff.  No actual craft, much to my embarrassment, was committed by me in the course of this swap.

Quilt for Pam


Doll quilt for Isabella

Has matching pillow and sheets, too. Quilt measures 25” x 31”.

Table runner for Pam

Not sure of dimensions. Quilted by me (two flower still to complete in centre block). I have the binding on but the quilting’s not complete. LOL

Sampler quilt for Wendy (my MIL)

Quilt commenced in 2003, finished 2005 and more than adequately covers a double bed, though I’m not sure of dimensions.

Detail, which also better illustrates colours. Quilted by Vikki Allen at Daisy May Quilting:

Michael’s 21st Quilt

Self explanatory. This picture is taken from a spread on bear’s paw quilts in Down Under Quilting magazine. They take much better photos than I do. I’m not sure of the dimensions, but it’s big. 😀
