Lots to Show

Not sure where the last few weeks have gone.  I hurt my back so have been taking it a bit easy no sweeping or vacuuming - more sewing time.

I purchased a darning foot for my machine so have been doing some machine quilting to practice.

I need to practice some more my stitches weren't very even but have really enjoyed having a go a free motion quilting.  I have a free more projects to practice on.

This is Times Gone By by Hugs n Kisses which I have been doing as a class.  There is one more class left and I just have some stitching to do on this month's quilt.

These are some of the stitcheries from the Market Folk Quilt by Cinderberry Stitches from the Cotton Floss book.  I am up to the last one.  I am using some of my Ruby fabric in this quilt.

These are some blocks from a quilt I am making using Ruby the pattern is from a magazine.

Until next time happy stitching

Sugar Rush

By the title of this post you may be thinking I am stuffing my face with chocolate and all manner of sweet treats but no it is the name of this quilt.

 The pattern is from a book called Simply by Camille Roskelley and she and her Mum Bonnie designed the fabric Bliss range.

 A close up of the quilting which I got done professionally by Lucy of Lasting Creations.

I picked the quilt up yesterday and spent the afternoon sewing on the binding whilst I watched the Grand Final.  I was glad my team wasn't playing yesterday as it was so cold and wet it was just the perfect day to sew on binding.

I couldn't resist buying a fat quarter pack of Bonnie and Camille's latest range Ruby I have some plans in mind as to what I can use these for a few different projects.

Until next time happy stitching.
