And sew on

The Dream On Quilt top came together like a dream.  Phew!  If only all things were as simple as that, although it did take longer than anticipated resulting in another late night sewing session.


Fortunately it is school holidays which is, as always, marked by a lack of routine.  What's more, my 15 year old son is on a school trip to Ireland to play Gaelic Football.  It means one less hungry mouth to tend to but on the other hand my mind wanders frequently to Dublin time and his itinerary.   Ireland is a long long way from home.


This week there is also a touch of Spring in the air, with a promise of more beautiful weather on the weekend.  Today is overcast but not cold, the heater is off for the first time in quite a while.


With the quilt top finished I am ready to start working on the backing.

I also thought it would be wise to let you know that Anna Maria Horner's new fabric range Innocent Crush has arrived at Hawthorne Threads. (Click here)


Happy Stashing.

  7. Question: do you cut each square individually and piece as such, or do you do strip piecing then cut into units? The results are always lovely, by the way!
