M.I.A

Sorry for disappearing again! Busy, busy, busy!
Hopefully it's not been too boring around here although I seem to have lost some followers! :o(
Thanks for lovely comments and emails about the quilting blocks, I always try to reply to every one but some are no reply blogger emails so thanks for the comments but sorry for no reply!


What's this you see - I have managed to squeeze a bit of craftiness out of me so it's time for show and tell!
At my last quilting class we looked at traditional piecing over papers or English Patchwork. This was a nice change as no sewing machine was involved.

Spent a lot of time cutting out these:


Then preparing the fabric:


A few hours in front of the TV and here's where I'm at:


Hand stitching not too obvious!

It looks lovely. Glad to see this style of quilting is fashionable at the momment. I tried it years ago but didn't make anything from the pieces.

just lovely, then I followed one of your links which showed my how to do this on a machine. Blogging is such a terrible thing, it gives me far too much to do . . . but I am inspired by your patchwork. Thank you.
