Sewing Fun

I have been working on a few things.

Firstly Layer Cake lemonade.  This is a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I have made it using Simply Colour by V & Co.  It is a gift for the lady at work who just retired last Tuesday.  I didn't have it finished in time but we are catching up for lunch on Friday with a few others that used to work with me.  I quilted it myself in a 2 inch cross hatch.

A close up of my quilting.  It isn't perfect but I am pleased with how it turned out.  I am going make a couple more of these quilts as they are easy and not too big that I can quilt myself.  They are also make a nice gift I have another top put together just waiting for my backing fabric to arrive.  I also have a Miss Kate layer cake which I am going to use as a wedding gift.

I also got my niece's quilt back from the quilters.  I have been snuggling under it whilst I sew on the binding.  Still more to sew but it is a huge quilt.

The quilting design is called popcorn and Jemima's have done a great job yet again.

I now have my Miss Kate trip around the world top all put together just need to wait for the Miss Kate yardage to arrive in stores so I can get some backing.  Sorry about the weeds it is too cold to garden.

More progress on my Little Creatures.  It is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.  I am trying to make sure all my seams nest.

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.  Thanks for stopping by and for all the lovely comments you leave.

Until next time happy stitching.
