My new quilt and more sewing room progress.

 Kansas Troubles fabrics  have always been my favourite, ever since I started quilting. I have quite a big collection so I thought a new quilt was in order to use  some of my stash. Here is the end result. A beautiful scrappy quilt using all my favourite prints.
 I even made some pillow cases to match. The set looks lovely on my bed.

 Its a queen size quilt and the pattern is from Another bite of Schibbles by the very talented Carrie Nelson.
 This week has been very productive in my new sewing room build. We got some river pebbles delivered and put them on one side of the new room, this area has been so muddy the past few weeks. It will be lovely sitting here in summer.
 The dirt area at the front will be paved later on and made into a nice veranda.

 The inside is really coming on, the builder cut a door into the main house so now we can access the room from both inside and out. The plaster is on and now he just needs to finish sanding.
 Its very well insulated so I should be nice and warm.
Not long now until I can move in, I'm hoping about 3 weeks, then the fun part for me starts.  I hope you're not getting bored with all my sewing room pics.

Today its so cold and frosty I plan to stay inside by the fire and sew.
I hope you have a good day and you find some sewing time.
