A very summery quilt

Baby girl quilt

Finally a finished quilt!  

Next quilt!

This year I have been trying to use up some of the fabrics in my stash.  This little set of Fat 1/8s of Lizzie by Anna Griffin has been in my stash for nearly 2 years!

I love the back as much as the front - a real double-sided quilt.

Look at those little house and birds!

The binding uses the last of this stripey fabric that I used before here and here.

And the mother-in-law's garden provides the perfect photo shoot location!

In the Frame Purse

Finally some sewing!

My purse for the In the Frame swap on Flickr is finished.

It's all packed up ready to go with some fabric scraps hidden inside.  Hope my partner likes it!

A new start

This was intended to be a post about my current works in progress.  But when I started adding them up and taking photos at the weekend it was all a bit overwhelming!!!

So instead I started a new quilt!


To be honest it was about time I got on with this quilt.  It's for my sister's 30th birthday at the end of September so I really need to get a move on.


Fabrics are a selection of Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush, Joel Dewberry Aviary 2 and some Kona solids which the lovely Mandy at Simply Solids helped me choose.


Linking up with Work in Progress Wednesdays
