Night and Day....

In the evenings,  I'm hand quilting this...



And in the day....


when time allows,


I'll be working on this!


Basted on tables for the first time!

Happy sewing!

Delilah-a progress report

There has been little time for sewing in my life 

recently....

except for my Delilah blocks!

Even these have been made for a couple of weeks...


I tried to make one scrappier than the other....


in a hope to control the fussy nature of this quilt!


I have heard that there are many 'filler' blocks 

required.....


so tonight I got started on some 3.5" pinwheels!

I'm counting the days until our 3 week, mid-year 

break....

when I might just sew, and stitch and share!



Happy days!

Scrappy Stepping Stones

I thought I'd do a follow-up of my latest quilt!


I found a photo of a scrappy quilt on Pinterest that 

sparked my interest, which lead me here.

But as there were no measurements, I worked out 

my own.


Maybe you'd like to make a Scrappy Stepping Stones 

quilt of your own....

I started with 2.5" squares,

making fifty 16-patch blocks...



I cut 49 white pieces from 1.3 metres of white, 

tone-on-tone fabric

and you need another 8 side pieces, of 4 squares 

each.

This will make a quilt that measures 68" by 72"

I may still put a white border around the outside....?


If you have any further questions please don't 

hesitate to add a comment to this blogpost!


Happy sewing!
