What's black and white and red all over ????

My latest mini string block quilt of course

I've been playing around with some fabrics and thought that the black framed the coloured prints perfectly and this one isn't as random as my others.  I have backed it in the pretty vintage style rose print that appear in the strings.  This is the last one before the craft fair in Hitchin on the 17th July and I have just one more to finish for a special little lady who is 6 next week ..... my grand-daughter Ellie.  Here is the work in progress ....

I saw this panel in the Crafty Quilter's shop at the Olde Watermill in Barton a few weeks back ... it is absolutely beautiful and I fell in love with it straight away

With the help of Joanna I chose these co-ordinating prints and it now looks like this

I just have to edge it in the yellow and back it in a plain red cotton.  I do hope my little princess likes it.


  1. Loving the black, white and red allover work. I am sure Ellie is going to LOVE her quilt.

  2. Lovely quilt, and lovely one for Ellie that's in progress at the moment!! I bet she'll love it!
    I havent hardly done any sewing lately, as it's been soooo hot! Will be busy when it cools down : )
