I've got some sewing to show you today. I recently took it into my noodle that I'd like to have a go at making a quilt. I've made a couple of small child size charity ones but I've never had a go at a "proper" quilt.
First stage was choosing the material and deciding on an (easy) pattern! I managed to buy some nice (bright) fabric at half price, so I thought if it doesn't turn out well, then it's no big loss!
Well, I tell you this has been a large learning curve in sewing seams, unpicking seams, then sewing them back together so that they (mostly) matched!
In total I've made twelve of these blocks and here's how it looks so far, now that I've sewn the twelve blocks together ...
I now need to find some plain fabric to sash it, then maybe add a colourful border - I'm not really sure yet. It's not going to be a huge quilt, just a large single sized lap quilt, otherwise I'll never get it finished!
So that's what I've been up to recently, I just needed to do something different!
I'd like to link my sewing to Handmade Monday.
Thanks so much for popping in, hope you're all enjoying the lovely spring weather.
