Reunion Quilt for Dad

Here is a little story about a quilt we decided to make for our Dad. It started from a Scrap bag we had back in November. 
We considered making it for Christmas but realised we wouldn't have time so thought a more realistic goal was his Birthday in March. 
Well we did make good progress but it wasn't finished in time for his Birthday. It wasn't finished in time for Father's day either.
So we decided to try and finish it in time for our camping trip but that came and went as well. 
Finally in the middle of August it was finally finished and we gave it to Dad. Only it nick it back again for our stand at the Festival of Quilts! It did look lovely though. Dad has  now received his Quilt and it looks fantastic on his bed at home. 
It also looks pretty good in the middle of a field.
What have we both learnt from this? I'm not very good at deadlines! Christmas samples for Alexandra Palace did you need them for this year or next??

p.s. The Grey Solid used in this quilt that we sold out of is now back in the shop. It is simply called 'Grey.'

We are both busy getting ready for Alexandra Palace. The Hotel is booked, as is the van, we have lots of lovely Christmas fabric in stock and we're both working on some pretty samples to tempt you all into buying!

We've still got lots of fabric to cut and with more still to come this month the rotary blades are taking a bashing!
Whilst cutting I couldn't help but notice all the pretty selvages on the fabric. There are Butterflies, Christmas Tree's and Aneela's Cherry Christmas actually has Snow Globes! 
I found this tutorial at Tallgrass Prairie Studios for a quilt made just with selvedges. I knew I was saving them for a reason!
We also have back in stock the Grey to with Reunion by Sweetwater and Zen Grey to go with Walk in the Woods and Cherry Christmas. we also have Silver which co-ordinates with the Bungle Jungle pre-cuts.
