A while ago back in the Summer, I purchased some moda squares just because I liked the patterns & colours. They have sat in my stash as I have never been too sure what to do with them. To be honest, I still don’t know, yet I’ve started to try & create something.
All I am sure of is it will be a blanket. I have no idea of a pattern, scheme or plan. I’m just sewing & going with the flow. Bit by little bit.
The task so far….
One of my New Years resolutions is to get back into the sewing den & get some more sewing done!
It was a pleasure to have an excuse when I was asked to make another baby quilt. The babies name is Molly rose, so I wanted to add this in, so when I came across the lettered block fabric it started my imagination to flow.
I mixed in some other fabrics including some ‘rose’ print to tie in with the name. Embroidered her date of birth on a heart appliqué & away I went.
I made my own bias binding using the fabrics used. (I so need to practice this binding malarkey!, I used the walking foot for the first time too)
I hope baby Molly likes it.
Once again it feels like forever since I blogged. I’ve had a manic October so far!
It was my birthday and my other half brought me this fantastic plaque for my sewing room
It’s great isn’t it, I love it ❤
I then completed a 10k extreme obstacle course on the 12th, which involved all sorts of crazy things, swamps, cargo nets, iced water, mud, mud and more mud! A lot of my time has been spent at the gym trying to get as fit for it as possible. I raised £800 for cancer research and feel pretty pleased!
Here's a few mud shots:
I finally got into my sewing room tonight! Its been too long… I created this pair of pillows inspired my a new book I have purchased, for patchwork and quilting. I have used various materials to jazz them up. I think they would look nice with some ditsy floral fabric too, I will try and make another pair at the weekend in different colours. The buttons in the middle are to disguise the fact I could get all the squares and triangles in line! I’m trying to suss out techniques to sort out these little issues I come across. Maybe I should read these sewing books I buy rather than just looking at the pictures! They turned out ok, I think they are quite funky!
My little cat also came in with me and helped the best he could 🙂 he loves exploring my stuff when I’ve got it all out. Inquisitive little cat he is:
My next mission is to try and sew in a zip to one of my cushions…I’m sure it will be interesting if nothing else!
