Bowls with Borders --- it's my turn

Hi, it's finally my stop on the Bowls with Borders Blog Hop!


I'm hopefully not here and am sunning myself in the Lot area of France and fingers crossed that the scheduling worked.

I loved this when I first saw it on Madame Samm's blog and was really excited to be involved with the hop.

My plan was for a wallhanging for the kitchen, I used fabrics that match my kitchen *perfectly* and it's now happily hanging by the sink...reminding my DH and kids !!!


FMQ and stitched in the ditch for the bowls

I will hang it properly once I get back from hols...lol


Thanks so much to  Regina for the lovely pattern and Carol, you have been fantastic organising and reminding us all...thanks for letting me take part it's been a blast.


Please go and check out the other hopper's who are showing you their bowls today.



And please stop by and enter my Back to school blog hop Here if you haven't already

  7. I need that to hang in my kitchen as a reminder for someone else (not me, of course) to wash the dishes. I love it! Your colors are great, too. Thank you for finishing your bowls before you left to enjoy the sun and have a nice holiday. I'm so glad you hopped with us and I hope you'll join us again in other hops. :O)

  40. Hello Pippa in France - I checked out your blog-you sure are a prolific quilter-so many great projects. Besides your colorful bowls quilt, I like best the hexie globe, perhaps because both of my daughters played soccer all the way through school and it reminds me of a colorful soccerball. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work. From CA, USA!
