Hurrah! The sun came out enough-ish to get some half decent pictures. Not quite the sunny garden photos I was hoping for but I'm just happy that it isn't raining.

I used this gorgeous line from Bunny Hill Designs in the green colour-way. The quilt is made up of one junior layer cake and the same amount of other cotton plus top and bottom borders (basically equivalent to a full sized layer cake). The leaves/petals have been backed with interfacing and then machine appliqu├ęd on top and finished with some minimal quilting.

 This has been one of those projects that I've had lying around until motivation and lack of space kicked in to finish it off and I'm so happy that I've ticked it off the list. 

I hope that everyone has a great weekend

Half Square Triangles

I finished a quilt. I really did. It has a top, a middle, a bottom, and even binding. But it's too dark here to take any pictures so you can't see it :( So until the sun reappears I thought I'd share what is inspiring me this week; half square triangle quilts. I started working on one last week but some of the fabrics weren't working together so I its been put on the back burner until I find something to add in that will work better.

Here are some of my favourites (love those two on the left)

WIP: Petal Quilt

I had hoped to have a finished quilt to share today but no such luck, so here it is looking pretty sad before binding. 

I'm also making this pile of half square triangles into a smallish quilt/throw
It's been a fairly productive week so far :D

Felt Projects: Egg Cosies

I've hardly been sewing at all over the past two weeks but I did get these done just before Easter. So here's a quick little project that came out pretty cute.

They're lined with some lovely wool blend felt and keep your eggs warm and cosy.

It's been a good couple of weeks off but now I'm looking forward to getting back into routine.
