    Thanks about the tip of grow light bulbs...now whether I can buy them here in Spain is another thing.. :roll:

    The villa has four bedrooms with a master suite, two lounges and a large dining kitchen.....not as big as it looks from the front view, it has a wrap around balcony which makes it look a lot bigger Ruth!! :-)

    Sewjoyce...have to confess I always tidy up after every session, which was 5am this morning before crawling into bed, then back up at 9am swept, mopped all the floors etc., ready to free me up for the day. I am abit of a neat freak :oops: :lol:

    Hey, don't be embarrassed about being a "neat" freak -- I have my moments but just usually not in my sewing room :D

    Izy-I was not on the computer yesterday so I just found this thread. I think this is without a doubt the most ingenious "quilting room" I have ever seen. Good for you for thinking outside the box and doing what needs to be done to get the job done!!

    Melissa, Sasha follows me EVERYWHERE., she was looking at me trying to work out if I was leaving the room and getting ready to follow me... :shock: ..even if she is fast asleep outside and I go to the loo....she always seems to know and comes in for a cuddle while I am contemplating..... :lol:

    Izy, Love the new use for the Loo. Like the new quilted Throne too. Izy I thought you were mad and you have just confirmed it. Go for it, good light is essential, but you are going to have crossed eyes doing all that sewing. Bet Sasha is confused.........this is not what I thought it was room.

    LOL

    Elle - I tell you I quilted the whole quilt in about 5 hours and it went like a dream...all the stitching is in the ditch...well apart from the odd little bit and the back looks really neat too....so I am a happy bunny, I have got the binding on and half hand stitched to the back, but I am too tired tonight....burned myself out last night lol!!

    Your so kind Melissa, I decided to use up all the pieces of fabric leftover. The central fabric was about 4" shorter than the front block section, so I just added another strip top and bottom to balance it out, I am really pleased with how this quilt has turned out...I might put it on our exhibition in October what do you think?? :?

    I think you should Izy!!! its a beautiful quilt!! I love the soft colors in it!!!!
    I always see people piecing the backs and I think they are so cool but havent worked up the courage to do it myself! That would take me out of my little comfort zone!!!! :lol:

    I was worried sick about lining them up, I didn't want all the seams to be together as I thought it would be difficult to quilt in the ditch if there was a double seam and could look really bad,if you didn't manage to line them up perfectly... so made the back borders to be off-set to the front....but squaring them both up to each othermwasn't too bad in the end, its a little bit off but not so much you would notice. I really wanted to do a giant disappearing 9 patch, but didn't have enough of each fabrics .....but next time...!!

    Hey, whatever works for you! Love the quilting. You did a great job. With the pieced back it's like two quilts in one.
