2 quilt tops finally backed and bound- the bento box and my purple Jane Brockett! The latter is for a 60th birthday present and has 2 little corners and tag in order to take a baton for hanging. I am still not happy with my machine quilting, I would love to take a class in it to improve.
Although you cant see the back of this rag quilt, it is in denim recyled from a plus size skirt I found at the car boot sale for 50pence! I love rag quilts but boy do they make a mess!
Last Saturday I was asked to do a workshop for a small groupl of ladies - my first ever!! I showed them how to tweet- no not the twitter sort, but fabric birds. I made these a while back thanks to the pattern from spoolsewing.com. They are so cute and everyones came out a little bit different!
It was a great day, the skills ranged from beginner to serious embroiderer ! Everyone enjoyed it and went away with lots of ideas on making some more for gifts.
And finally, I wanted to make a baby quilt with set of fabrics by Riley Blake-Seaside- I bought them on my last trip to The Eternal Maker with my daughter . So I ran the top up today -
Have a great weekend in the sun!
