The weather has still been awful - We have had torrential rain, wind and ever so slight periods of sunshine but still a cold 8 degrees. All of this unkind weather has put us way behind in our schedule to have the house ready for sale. But it has given me some time to play around in the studio. These fabrics were yesterday's deal of the day and whilst I was cutting orders I thought about an easy beginner's quilt using them. So I cut and stitched for a few hours in the afternoon.
And came up with this. I am currently hand appliquing the dragonflies and will then send it off to be quilted. I will do a girly Butterfly version too just as soon as the fabrics arrive.
I have been packing Hexagon Club Patterns and also sewing some more blocks. I am really enjoying this project.
Today I will be sending out the partners for the Doily Swap. If you don't get an e-mail from me by tonight just drop me a line.
I have this photo saved on my computer I can't recall where it was from but isn't it cute? I picked up some sweet little metal tooth zips the other day at a thrift store so I might make a few of these with lavender inside. They would be great to add to gift parcels don't you think?
