Yummy Yummy Chocolate Chenille!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As you do, when the cats away the mouse will play - Monday evening after I cooked myself a very enjoyable meal, Geoffrey was at a meeting, so I decided to head out to the shop and cut up a new flannel quilt with the flannels that arrived in store on Thursday last week. Using 14 fat 1/4's I had them cut into squares and rectangles in no time, then back to the dining room table to sit and sew while I listened to the footy. In a couple of hours I had the quilt top nearly pieced together. Then last night I sewed on the borders using the very yummy new chocolate chenille. Lots of ladies have been using the chenilles laterly. Judy packed kits today so tonight I have typed up and printed off the instructions, so my new flannel quilt "Rum & Raisin" is ready for sale, ready for the festival this weekend. I will have it quilted next week.

It's a great size just under 2m square, so would make a great throw quilt for the hubby or the teenage kids. I so enjoyed sewing this quilt, I just love working with flannels.

Here is a photo of the quilt.

Only 3 sleeps to go until Nundles Annual Easter Chinese go for Gold Festival. More about it tomorrow.

Until then sleep tight.
