Today I made the quilt sandwich and I have just finished pinning it all together, here it is laid out on the dining table getting it ready - lucky I have a large dining table, I cant imagine how back breaking this would be to have to do it on the floor.
I chose a lovely soft butterscotch coloured backing fabric from my stash, this one is part of the thimbleberry's range. I always rummage around my LPS's clearance bin and manage to pick up nice backing pieces such as this - at half the price of normal yardage.
Here it is pinned ready to go, I actually ran out of pins on this quilt, could have done with a few more. Note to self, pick up more quilting pins next time I am in spotlight.
MIL's 70th is on St Patricks day which is only two weekends away, hence the hurry on. The theme for her party is to wear green, which meant I had to go shopping. I have a couple of casual green tee shirts, but nothing to wear to a party.
I found this lovely green top and silk scarf.
I have indulged in quite a bit of sewing this weekend, and have to confess the ironing has not been done. I have made block one of my new BOM pond house.
Here is the completed block pinned on my design wall, its quite long so it was hard to get the whole block in the photo
