Stash Sewing

I am still managing to sew only from my stash.

I have just completed my scrappy trip along quilt with the help of my QCA Bee mates.

I love how this turned out and will definitely be making this pattern again in future.
It is so easy but so effective and the blocks can be laid out in different formation to completely change the look of the finished quilt.

I have gifted this quilt to a work colleague who has sadly been diagnosed with Cancer.  Her prognosis is excellent as they have caught it very early so that at least is a positive.

Simple stipple quilting has kept the quilt soft and snugly perfect for her to wrap herself up whilst recuperating.

Until next time.

A picture is worth a thousand words...

Life has just been too busy this past 6 weeks to allow time for blogging.

A family crisis, full time work and significant birthdays for my kids (21 & 18) have taken priority and to top it off I had a fall breaking my arm which meant that I could not sew for several weeks (insert sad face!).

Just before the accident I managed to put together my Log Cabin QAL quilt for SewMyStash2015.

And now that everything is back to normal I have been sewing like a woman possessed to catch up on bees and swaps.

And that my friends is a wrap.

Until next time.
