My creative space

Here's a project that has been in production for an embarassingly long period of time - promised for a friend's 40th birthday which took place in November. (Sorry, but how did it suddenly become March??)

Just have the last few inches of binding to sew down (by hand). This is not my first quilt I've worked on, but it is the first quilt I've done entirely on my own - design, cutting, sewing, quilting, binding. It almost seems a shame to be giving it away, but I'm giving it of course to someone who will love it (and I'll have visiting rights). Craig wants one the same (a pity I do not have enough of the same fabrics).

The fabrics include Mums Blue from the Simple Abundance line by Bonnie and Camille - I love love love this fabric - after I'd decided to use it in this quilt I quickly ordered some more so it can still live in my stash until I find another worthy project. The teal green backgrounded florals are Wuthering Heights by Three Sisters for Moda from about four years ago (yes I've been hoarding them - plus some fat-eighths and a charm pack, ready and waiting!)

More creative spaces here.


  1. It's lovely - you must be really proud.

  2. Looks great, patchwork only gets better with age, try that as your delivery line. Love Posie
