Apologies for the block being one day late. There was a car accident on our road the past few days and the car hit some sort of NBN node which took our internet access out completely. It has since been repaired but the signal is thready and super super slow. So uploading has been almost impossible and so frustrating !!!!
Around 10 years ago I released this quilt FREE here on the blog as a Block of the Month. I run a TILDA Lover's Club over on Facebook and I have decided to remake the quilt in TILDA fabrics and re-release the blocks every Saturday for 10 weeks. Do you want to join in the fun ?
The fabric requirements and measurements as well as the instructions to make Block 1 can be found HERE.
I hope you are keeping safe and finding plenty to occupy yourself in this time lockdown.
Well it has certainly been quiet some time since I have blogged. But here I am ! Last week we held the final Let's Get Stitched Sewing Retreat ! After 10 years it was time to close the page on that chapter of our lives.
This gorgeous little Vintage Sewing Set was one of my projects on the day. I made it from vintage linens and ticking.
I really enjoyed putting it together.
I have had the vintage ticking in my stash for quiet sometime and decided to be really brave and cut it up !
I teamed it up with a vintage embroidered tablecloth and utilised as much as I could of it. The PDF pattern and the actual sewing set itself are both available over in my ETSYstore.
Whilst the retreat was on we visited a number of quilting shops in Hobart. I do not go into the city very often so I really enjoyed browsing through the shops as much as all of the other ladies and I did make a purchase or three! But my favourite purchase was this stunning panel from French General.
It is printed on linen and I decided to stitch the first one in chain stitch. I have the perfect fabric to go with the redwork and will turn it into a scatter cushion when it's finished.
Unfortunately some of the ladies left a flu bug here for me so I have been laid up since they left but it has given me the opportunity to start stitching and I am really enjoying it.
The other 3 panels included are just as nice.
Although I think this sampler may be my favourite !
They are going to be great to stitch over the winter.
Let's hope it doesn't take me quite as long to blog next time.
