Here's the thing

OK so this is my first venture into scraps and my first play with value. But here's the thing. I love this so much that, unless my partner goes mental over it, I am going to keep it for myself and make something different for her.


I know that sounds horribly selfish but I made a quilt in another swap, sent it off all happily and never heard a thing from the person it was made for and it made me very sad.


If my partner yells "knickerbockerglory" from the rooftops when she sees this then I will be thrilled and she can have it with my big hearted blessing because it was made for her. If she's kind of blah about it, that's cool too and I'll have a re-think for her and hang this on my kitchen wall and shout 'knickerbockerglory' from my rooftop (well the velux window just below because I'm scared of heights).

    Thank you Marilyn and Jamie :-)

    It IS lovely, and I do love it for all it's scrappiness, but (yes I'm the butt here) I'm not all knickerbockerglory over it. Sorry, and yes, I'd love you keep it for yourself, because YOU love it so much.

    I've only received one swap that really had me a bit disappointed, but it was the quality of the finish, not the colours or design.

    What I can't believe is how quick you did it! OMG, you are just one big quilting machine Lynne!

    Can I pretend to be a brit? So you'll send it to me? :) This is really really spectacular!
  • Julie Gmehlin 4y

    WOW! Stunning, I am speechless...I do so WISH I was a BRIT now, I could be in YOUR swap!
  • Vicky 4y

    OK then......I'm not a selfish person so you can keep this BUT you had better get one made for me NOW!!! KNICKERBOCKERGLORY WITH BIG CHERRIES ON TOP!!!

    Sorry was it rude to use capitals?? Did I have a toddler like tantrum?? Look what you've brought usdown to Lynne....... we're desperate to get hold of your big scrappy flag.
  • Laura Taylor 4y

    I love this Lynne. I'll shout anything you want about knickers or pants if I'm your partner :-) It's just so unique and original and inspiring!
  • Sheila Donnachie 4y

    Knickerbockerglorying just in it.
  • sil 4y

    Lynne!!! It' just amazing!! Love the bright colors and its contrast with the white stripe! Adn the triangles shape..... fantastic!! You rock!!!!!!!
    And I would be sad too, if someone that I'd sent a quilt, didn't tell me any word!! neither Tks!
    In a swap group I've participate, I sent my quilt to my partner and the person who should send a quilt to me, she forgot my quilt, and after 2 months, she found the quilt in a stack of fabrics and only then she have noticed that she didn't sent the quilt to me!!!!! And She had the courage to write exactly what I said!. I fell so bad: She forgot my person!!!! It's an unkind atittude, in my opinion.So I can imagine what you are feeling!!
    But there's a lot of kind people on Flickr, like you Lynne, and then we continue swapping!!
  • Natalie Leppard 4y

    Um, wow, Lynne! This is the sort of thing that would get me to expatriate and live in the UK just so I could be part of the swap and have this in my house (from which I would have shouted whatever you request from the roof).
  • Lynne 4y

    Thank you so much for all those lovely lovely comments - swaps can go bad, which makes me sad but you lot have made me very happy with this quilt which I did love anyway but it's nice when someone else loves what you made :-)
  • Kelly 4y

    I love love love this quilt!
  • PatchworknPlay 4y

    You've don't it again Lynne-not just a fan-tab-u-lous quilt but some wonderful comments and a fun thread to read!!!! No matter what you call this quilt, your partner would be nuts not to LOVE it! And so sad about "lady's parts" too. (shame your partner couldn't share the love!)
  • Reene 4y

    Lynne Clearly "That is all" means I have no more words to describe how fab it is!!! Shame on your last partner for not shouting from the rooftops!!!!
  • Lynne 4y

    he he he thank you Reene X
  • jessica bisignani 4y

    I'm not your partner but ... knickerbockerglory! That's some gorgeous work! :) thanks for sharing! :)
  • Mandy 4y

    I used to call my sister knickerbockerglory if I wanted to stir her, cause her name is Nicola. It was never about the sundae, always about her knickers!!! Childish yes, but then we were!
  • Yvonne 4y

    Ok Lynne. I'm up on the roof shouting 'KNICKERBOCKER GLORY' at the top of my voice! Can you hear me? Of course I don't really believe for one minute it's for me but I can dream can't I? :)
  • LULUBLOOM :: lucia 4y

    Good grief... do the ideas ever stop pouring out of you? I'm getting a little tired of having to look at all of your lovely creations.

    Well done, Lynne. Well done. :)
  • Lynne 4y

    Oh Mandy that is so funny. Thank you so much Yvonne and Lucia :-)
  • Little Island Quilting 4y

    I DO like it...but I'm really rather glad I didn't shout 'knickerbockerglory' now ;-)
