Finished Quilt & Jonathan Butler

I completed this quilt today. It's going to be a gift for a relative in Scotland.
I had made the top last year from a charm pack and the technique is 'disappearing nine patch".

For the quilting I used a decorative stitch along the stitching line instead of stitch in the ditch. It was quick and doesn't require too much fuss.

With the very hot weather we are having these past two days (38 degrees Celsius) the garden is not too happy, but early this morning I took photos of these two lovely rose plants which are still giving so much colour...

This past Friday I went to see a live show with Jonathan Butler, for the first time in Australia.
Jonathan is originally from Cape Town, South Africa and has been singing and playing the guitar since he was a child. He has an impressive number of albuns released and has performed all over the world and continues to do so with such a varied reportoir.
I chose this song which is more of a smooth jazz / R&B style.


  1. Lovely quilt. I think the fabric choice is very appropriate for a Scot!!!
    Great Idea to use a decorative stitch. Stitch in the ditch is harder than it looks.
    Your roses look wonderful, I think I can smell them out here!LOL!!!

  2. great quilt Cynthia - it looks really cozy - and gorgeous roses. You must have a green thumb!

  3. Celia,

    que idéia ótima para aproveitar sobras de tecidos. A mistura de tecidos e cores, ficaram lindas e dá um visual incrível a esta manta.

    Bjs e bom domingo.

  4. What a nice use of plaids and strips. The DNP is so versitle, it is my "go to" pattern, every time you use it the pattern looks so different.

  5. I was blog hopping on Sunday morning and found your site so I'm a new follower. Am learning to quilt but do love to make American Girl doll clothes to give a way to little girls ... visit me at:

  6. Hello Celia,

    A beautifully finished quilt. The relies in Scotland will certainly appreciate cuddling under this. Thanks so much for the rose photos.
    Happy days.
