A Little Sewing

At last I've actually managed a little easy sewing !

The blocks have been languishing for months, but at least now I've added the borders , so maybe sometime soon it'll get quilted :-)

 A little donation quilt, made from a bundle of FQs I was given some time ago.  The colours were a little dark, so I thought to brighten it up with white and then found the dots fabric. Looks quite good in real life, all I need to do now is find a home for it once its finished.

Worldwide Quilting Day

Its been a long six months since I managed any serious sewing, and as there's nothing new to share today,  I thought I'd show you one of my all time favourite quilts instead.

I first wrote about it here,  and what's more, it's still in my possession as so far I have managed to resist all pleas from DD to take it home with her.  I will give in one day, but at the moment I just want to enjoy it for a little longer as it was a number of  'firsts' for me and marked a turning point in my quilting.

I hope you all manage to get some sewing done today, and hopefully I'll be joining you at least for a short time :-)
