Weekend sewing

What a weekend, I have had such a good sewing time. I got lots done including this christmas table topper which I just love, All it needed was the binding sewn down, so last night I did that little job.

Yesterday I made all the shoo fly blocks for the top row of my Vignette quilt, this took practically all day. I made 22 of them. They do look so pretty don't you think.



Today I sewed the 2 sides together and did the tracing for one side. I haven't actually done much stitching but I will get stuck into that when I go on my quilt camp in 2 weeks. ( can't wait )





I'm using flower sugar fabrics which are my absolute favourite right now, do you go through stages of just loving a range of fabric? I have noticed my fabric tastes have changed alot since I first started quilting 5 years ago.







So bright and cheery.


I also did alot of christmas sewing which I can't share yet, I'm slowly getting them done. Its a good feeling to cross some off the list.

How was your weekend? I hope you found some sewing time.

Leanne I love your Christmas topper, it is perfect! And of course I love your Vignette sewing, you have got such a lot done, beautiful.

Is the table topper a Schnibble pattern? It looks wonderful and so do your Vignette blocks - the colours/fabrics are beautiful. You're right about fabric tastes changing but the available choices these days compared to when I started quilting are fabulous.

The sewing fairy is sitting on your shoulder Leanne. You are making some wonderful projects lately. It's a good thing you are so busy as I'm going backwards!

A great Christmas topper, Leanne. So lovely to see some 'not quite traditional' colours being used :)

Flower Sugar makes beautiful shoo fly blocks. I see in the latest Homespun they are giving away pack of 38 fat quarters of Sugar Flower. I will have to remember to be in to win that! Beautiful. Tracee xx
