My Favourite Things Quilt

A couple of blocks have now been completed for my December deadline !!  In amongst playing with our new puppy NALA (the classic time waster) - I have managed a little bit of stitching!!  My old blue jeans!



My suitcase which I have altered with the names of our recent travel destinations!


And although not a stitching project - this little time waster has been lots of fun!!

Love your personalised suitcase. This quilt really lends itself to being personal. I'm sure all of our quilts will be so different!
