Look what I made...

I have had a lovely week. Its the first week of school holidays for my boys so I have had the week off with them. Mostly I have been painting our new games room that my husband and I renovated, I really shouldn't say I as I didn't do much at all except paint the inside and make coffees. In between painting I have been sewing. I had to get a little bit done each done each day to keep me happy. This quilt is my most favourite so far, I was proud of myself to be able to do such a busy quilt. I usually stick to simple patterns. I used my favourite Kansas troubles fabrics in this quilt, a bit of Garden Inspirations and Bound to the Prairie. When this quilt is all quilted I plan to hang it in my bedroom. The borders really make this quilt, don't you think. They were fun to do. I can't wait to quilt it now.
Now I have finished one project its time to move onto another. I had a couple of 1930s charm packs so I decided to use them and make a quilt , The blocks come together really quickly. After working with such dark fabrics in my last quilt its fun to play with some pretty ones. I hope you found some sewing time today.
