Surprise Quilt Finish

I promised to show you the Surprise Quilt finished, so here it is -

It washed well but I am concerned that it went a bit too wrinkly and crinkly in the dryer, but perhaps that's just my ironing OCD kicking in!

I also rustled up a couple of little coin purses for two sisters for Christmas gifts. I would like them to have been finished off a little bit better, but I think they're acceptable and I don't suppose an 8 yr old and a 10 yr old are going to inspect them too closely (she says hopefully).  Besides the tiny Lindt bears should be sufficient decoy, don't you think?

Tomorrow night at class I'm hoping to supplement each of these wee pressies with a matching tissue pouch.  Well, that's the plan anyway and then that'll be another couple of things ticked off the list.


  1. Congrats on completing the surprise quilt!! it looks great! (and not too wrinkly). The coin purses are just darling, also-- they will be loved.

  2. Surprise quilt is stunning S! And those wee pouches are too cute! Jxo

  3. I know Lindy distracts me from just about everything so hopefully it will work for those much younger too - not that I think there is any need for distraction there! The quilt looks fantastic and I don't think it is too wrinkly at all.

  4. Love this quilt and purses are cute


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
