I’m working on a few different things lately, so today’s post is a ‘progress report’ on where I am up to.
First up are the blocks for the Splendid Sampler.
For this block, called ‘Flying High’, I decided to cut the bird shapes out of wool felt and appliqued them down by free-motion sewing. Luckily I had a few scraps of suitable colours to mix in with my theme of using Japanese-taupe as inspiration.
Next up, I have made the two blocks for April’s do.Good Stitches quilting bee. These had to be a house block using bright colours and a pale ‘sky’.
I also had a sewing day with some friends where we each had a few finished projects to show and tell. Mine was just a cute little pouch, made from a Studio Mio pattern.
I made it in some lovely fabric given to me by a friend, and lined it with a blue and white spot.
It even has birdies on it!
This next one was Barb’s little bag with handles; it has a French-style look about it, yes?
And this was Trudy’s shoulder bag in that great colour combination of blues and browns:
Hope you are all having a lovely productive week!
