With MY sausage fingers???

Sharing my WIP ... this is going to be a lapquilt (60" x 60") for dear SIL - a Christmas present, if I can get it finished in time! Which is getting less and less likely with my improvisation at every stage just adding hours to the piecing of the top!

I am designing the quilt based on our trip to Amsterdam and inspired by this image:

And am not following any pattern, just making each house up as I go along ... which led to me cutting and sewing all these 1" squares for windows ... not easy when you have 'sausage' fingers like mine!

And a little preview of the other houses:

I need some more hours in the day ... I wonder if Father Christmas is listening???

Linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday :)


  1. This is going to be awesome! I'm loving it! :)

  2. Can't wait to see this finish! It looks great. Are you pieceing it or will you applique some parts? The smallest pieces I've done were on a "Fractal Quilt" for my son. It seemed to take forever. Really makes me admire people who do mini quilts!

  3. Hey, this is going to be awesome! And I think you have very pretty hands. :)

  4. Looking good! I am sure that she will not mind if it's late! I can't wait to see this come together! Oh & BTW....sausage fingers are just more proof that we are in fact QT's!!! :D


I love reading all your comments, I know it takes time to write them but they make me smile so thank you for dropping by :)
