Tah Dah!!

Yes, I think a Tah Dah! moment coming on.

In January I joined a splinter group from 'Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along' called 'Around the Bend and Across the Pond', you can find the latter group here  These are a couple of the flickr groups I look into on occasions, about once a day to be honest, anyway back to the story on hand.  In my group, we had to make a centre for a quilt, then it was passed along and across the pond for others to add borders.

This was how my one started, just a 16" square made up from my scrap bag.

And this is the signature block that was to accompany my centre so that all that added a border could sign, date and add the area they live.

I said farewell in January and watched each month as my centre grew and grew.
At the end of August my 'now quilt top' was returned to me from my mate Dee.  Just in case you don't know Dee lives in America and we met up in June when she came to visit her daughter who lives in Oxford, you can catch up on her visit here.  The quilt returned and I loved it.

and this is the signature block.. all filled in

All I had to do now was to redecorate a room for the quilt to feel at home in.  So, this ........

has changed to this........

The colour looks a bit blue in this photo
Looks good doesn't it?
So I really think this is well worth a Tah Dah!! and a Thank you to all the ladies that took part in this 'Round Robin'.


  1. Oh, Jo!!! It's just wonderful - great colour on your wall, too!!

  2. Wow! It's stunning! What a lovely look to the room.

  3. Definitely a Tah Dah moment Jo, its a stunning quilt And you managed to get the room decorated to match too. Puts us to shame.

  4. Came over from Flickr and so love what you've done with painting for such a great quilt!
