My biggest project was Lucy's row for her quilt in the Bee a Brit Stingy row by row Bee. Lots and lots of foundation pieced geese.
I very much wanted to make something for a friend's birthday this month and woke up one day knowing exactly what would fit the bill - a 241 Tote using Noodlehead's pattern.
and the finished bag..............
I made a very large Granny, (24")
and then last week, I was reading a past copy of Love P & Q and was interested in Julie's take on Disappearing Nine Patch. You know that way, when you see something, and you just have to try it ?
I had a go, using some of my pre cut 2.5" scraps and added in a few newly cut ones too. Most of the fabrics used are pretty old and traditional but many hold memories of where and when previously used. I loved the random placement and direction of the blocks. The finished cushion fits in nicely with some of my other scrappy cushions.
I always quilt the backs of my cushions, joining them first of all to the front before actually quilting - I raked about in my stash for something suitable and found a linen look tea towel and instantly recalled buying it in Cairns, Oz, back in 2012. There's a memory in everything it seems.
Linking up for the first time in ages, to Lily's Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day.
