Marmite and T(ea)

I managed to finish my T quilt top this weekend. I used Cheryl Arkison's 'To a T' block design from Modern Blocks. It is so easy to put together and I really like the simplicity. This quilt is going to be for littlest daughter. These are not colours I would normally work with but I am really happy with how it has turned out. I used a mix of 'Outfoxed' by Lizzie House and some Kate Spain 'Terrain' that I had lurking in my stash. It is a little on the small side so I think I am going to add either a deep purple or dark red border to finish it off.

We are back in winter here today more snow and minus temperatures. BUT the sun in shining and we saw our resident giant hare this morning. My Mum and Dad arrive tonight for the long weekend. It will be so lovely to see them and as an added bonus they will be bringing marmite and tea! Life is definitely good even with the extra snow.


  1. Say Hi to your Mum and Dad,we are off to 'Summer' cottage - haha it is under a few feet of snow. catch up soon!

  2. The quilt top looks great! Can't wait to see how you finish it!
    The weather has been crazy here. No snow, but random rain showers and large hail stones! =D

  3. I found your blog through Lily's Quilts. Love your sense of colour and style! Look forward to seeing what else you will be making.

  4. What a very fun quilt top! Great idea to use a letter that way. Also, you have a resident hare ?? Lucky you! I have only caught briefest, distant glimpse of a hare.
