The old made new

About 18 years ago I made this quilt.  I has been well loved and it covers the table under my Christmas tree each year.

I decided it was about time to make another 'pineapple' quilt.  I have recently been seduced by all the lovely red and aqua quilts that are on Pinterest so decided that was the way to go.

Several hours of ironing, cutting, sewing and trimming later, I'm not sure if it is working for me!  Love the colours but the pattern is not 'crisp' enough.  I have decided to finish it at 9 blocks and quilt it as a table topper.

Oh well, on the bright side - at least the 'waste' is pretty!!!!

Friday was not a total write off.  I made the Chocolate Baileys mud cake  I found on Pinterest and we will have it for dessert this evening with some vanilla ice cream.....YUM!

Have a good Bank Holiday weekend.

  1. That is a serious chocolate cake, delicious no doubt. I've always liked your Christmas pineapple quilt. Your new topper is lovely (great fabric) just different. Hope you're enjoying your BH weekend xx
