I have done some sewing................honest!

It's been an incredibly busy couple of months. If I thought I was busy before, that was nothing compared to the last six weeks or so!
I have been wanting to post something for ages, but then life gets in the way and the moment has gone.
So not a lot of sewing has gone on.

I have made some quilt samples though! The first I am really pleased with and which uses fabrics from the Magic Garden collection from Blend Fabrics.


It went together really quickly, in a matter of hours!

Then I made what I feel is my first modern quilt! It uses the stripe from the Retro Mix collection from Robert Kaufman. It just needs some great straight line quilting...........

Next up was a delft inspired quilt featuring fabrics from the Dutch Cottage collection from Robert Kaufman. I'm really pleased with this one too. I love using stripes as sashings and bindings.

Wow! Looking at those quilts I feel like I have actually been quite productive! Maybe it's because I haven't done much hand sewing recently. I've just finished blocks C9 of our SBS quilts this evening so will post some pics soon.

Oh and I can now post a pic of the layer cake quilt I was working on seeing as it's on the front cover of P&Q magazine!
