Another project finished

I had a busy weekend with my sewing, I got lots done including finishing off this beauty. This is what I call my Bliss quilt, the fabric is gorgeous and I thoroughly enjoyed putting this quilt together. Any kind of stitchey quilt is my most favourite to make.


This is my favourite block.











My photo skills are improving, I get lots of inspiration from other blogs and the way people photograph their quilts. If you look closely you will see a gold fish swimming away. We have a big pond in our back garden.








Yesterday while I was whipping up yet another swoon block (photo of that to come) I had a few scraps of fabrics left so I made this dresden plate, I think I'll turn it into a cushion as it will be go nicely with the quilt when I finish.


I also have almost finished a cushion for a shop sample so I'll share that with you soon.


It was a very productive weekend, I hope you found some sewing time.
