Another finish to share

Here is my newest finish, a beautiful half sqaure triangle quilt. I really enjoyed making this quilt, it was easy and quick to do. I didn't use a pattern, I cut my squares at 6 inches and sewed the 2 lines either side of the middle. Easy peasy I'm sure some of you think I don't do anything else but sew, but I do other things as well, for instance... this morning my family and I went on a 2 hour bush walk. It was -2 degrees but we braved the cold and off we went. I never thought to bring the camera until we got there. It was so nice and quiet.

Although as soon as we got home and had lunch I was into my sewing.



I love the feel of this quilt, its so soft and snuggly now its been washed. I finished sewing the binding down last night.





I also have a shared project to share with you. I did the stitching but my wonderful mother in law put the bag together for me. I was having a bit of trouble understanding the instructions.

It turned out really well. Thanks Dawn. xx








Its been a busy day and I'm worn out so I'm going to dish up our dinner soon and have a well earned rest.

Until next time.... happy sewing

I love your HST quilt! I want to make one some day. I made a flag with 3" HSTs and had some left over, so that is the start of my other HST quilt - safely stored in a box for some day in the future!

Oh and I forgot to say.... I dont think you just sew all the time, I think you have great time management! I am the same, once the home duties are done, I like to do what I want!
