In one piece

My latest quilt is all one piece.
Still not sure if I like it....
Hmmm, borders?

I do love it when my maths works out, eventually.

Not so sure

I have been working on a new quilt.
That's lot of sewing before I see a result but I'm not so sure about how it is going to look.
I was playing on Instagram later.....
the colours are lot like my freshly dug homegrown spuds.

Time to start something new...

Here's my fabric selection
not counting a rummage through the scraps box.
I am starting with the basic 9-patch.
2 1/2" squares.
You are welcome to join me but it will get more complicated.
I have sewn triangle on all four sides.
6 1/2" x 3 3/4" rectangle cut diagonally to give half a 60 degree triangle.
I am working this out as I go along
from a picture on the Internet.
hope it works.

A bit of stitching

I spent a lovely sojourn last week at Tafta Geelong.

Here is my little collection of samples of limo cuts

and various other techniques

so I thought I would stitch a little thingy,

what should I call it,

to put them in.


I do like a bit of stitching,

so I used a bit of my vintage kimono silks.
