Friday night sew in and I have a new design just published.

 Another busy week has come and gone and what better way to end the working week than with some sewing. Last night I started putting some of my scrappy Kansas Troubles star blocks together. I made these in January and they just got put aside.
 Now winter is here I want this quilt for the lounge so I thought I should  make a start at putting it together. I love the black sashing between each block, it really makes them stand out. I plan to use the black for the outer border as well. Can't wait to get this one finished.

 In other sewing news..... I have been published again. Its so exciting for me to see my projects on the pages of a magazine. This time I made a table runner and matching bunting. There are stitcheries on them both with an Afternoon Tea theme.

 I used my favourite Fig tree fabric called Avalon, its so pretty and reminds me of Spring.
 I took way too many photos and couldn't just pick a couple so I'll let you scroll through them all.


 I loved making this bunting.
So thats my sewing for this week. I hope you all got lots done to, if you would like to see who else joined in for Friday night sew in, please click here to see the list.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I love, love love your star block quilt. Is that Kansas Troubles fabric? I don't know why you are so surprised at being published - your projects have magazine worthy for ages; especially your stitcheries!

I love the scrappy quilt and the black sashing is perfect. Congratulations on your published designs! They are lovely. I really like the bunting idea and think it would be cute on a window that has venetian blinds but no curtains.
