A Fabric Sandwich

I have finally got back to the Quilt Room in Dorking to get the backing fabric for the quilt I started at New Year.

I clearly looked a little clueless in the store as the lovely assistant spent about an hour explaining the backing fabric I'd need, how to attach it and the array of quilting options (machine and hand) which were available to me.

I left the store with all sorts of quilting pencils, markers, threads and fabrics and am pleased to tell you my quilt is now sandwiched together, pinned to within an inch of its life and partically stitched....might even have it finished in time for winter at this rate


  1. The colours are lovely. Its a very cheerful quilt.The backing and quilting seem to take the longest to do but it will be worth it in the end.

  3. Ooo I was just there on sunday...Dorking that is! And was mighty crest fallen that the quilt room was shut (but found an amazing antiques fair so not so bad...) however have since discovered their website...hhmmmm me thinks there will be some cash spent there.... the quilt is looking fab by the way, will look amazing when it is all finished, and it looks like you're nearly there. x


Thanks for stopping by.
I really do appreciate every comment so would be grateful if you let me know your thoughts.
