Mountmellick Progress

Last night I put the last stitch in the part 4 border of Mountmellick, a mystery quilt by Di Ford and published in Quiltmania magazines in 2014.

The corners are English paper pieced. I am hand stitching the whole quilt.

Before we went away to Japan I had all the little triangles cut out ready to piece. I managed to do only a little piecing in Japan, but I had a stitching marathon on the plane on the way home! :)

Next is a narrow appliqued border, then a wider pieced border. Still a long was to go!

I did finish one small quilt earlier this year..

Here it is with its new owner inside his teepee..


  1. Stunning Mountmellick Mirium, absolutely love the colours. Can't wait to see the next border...:-)

  2. Sorry also love the teepee and the little cutie in it.

  3. Mountmellick is looking beautiful. Love the plus quilt, it's a very satisfying design to make. Looks perfect in the teepee.

  4. You are creating a family heirloom Miriam! You will never regret the time and effort you put into your Mountmellick quilt!

  5. Your Mountmellick is looking beautiful, such a lot of work. I really love your grey and white plus quilt, nice calming colours.

  6. Oh my goodness, it's absolutely gorgeous! And extra specially nice because it's hand pieced. Such an accomplishment. Love the little quilt under the teepee. Perfect!
