READHEADS–Big quilt finished!

IMG_3558
I have finished the big quilt of the  ‘Redheads’ project…..
You may remember that this is the quilt made of the vintage Kimono fabric..

redheads 001 



.. I gave it to Sean & Emmy for Christmas 2013.
(that's Georgie Girl sniffing around and helping with the photo)
Its named ‘Redheads’ as the gold 
and red blocks look like matches…

Here is a scan of the label.

Georgie loved the quilt while I was binding it.. very snuggly..
(and the yucky sofas will be recovered for the new house)
The quilt has a lot of Japanese rabbits..

I’m hoping it will promote fertility.. ((whoops))!!

I’m now sorry, that I didn’t make it bigger, as they put it on their bed!!!
One row bigger each way would have been easy, as I still have a lot of leftover blocks
that were originally destined for a smaller quilt…
But, now I think they may become a table runner

AS  USUAL….. our New Years Day was spent on the Car Club’s ‘Mystery’ New Years Day run.

MORE than half the vehicles got lost, and it all turned into a bit of a debacle!

The ‘Mystery’ was if we would ever all end up at the the same place at the same time!!

But we  met up AGAIN….  at the the Uralla swimming pool.. and bravely continued on…

          We ended up at the old Race Course on the out-skirts of Uralla.

It was, lovely and cool under the trees.

We had a nice picnic.

I made, Egg & Ham pie,,, with Ginger, Lime & Coconut slice.

And of course I made enough for 6+ people…….

(I’m sure..  that in a former life.. I was THE cook in a big English manor house)
