Siblings take two

I have to be honest and say I finished up this quilt a couple of weeks ago really. I seem to have a habit of finishing projects and not blogging them!

This is my second quilt made from the fabrics donated by Jennifer and I had just enough batting from the parcel that Sarah sent me to quilt it too :-)


Again I have to admit that I wimped out and did a very simple block design and quilting pattern, just for speed really! I did fiddle with my block size so I could just squeeze those fussy cut birds in the centres, love them!




I am ever so slightly obsessed with striped binding at the moment!


Whoops, I think I need to get back to take the shot a little  quicker!

Here's a new one, I ditched the barn door in favour of the grotty back  door guttering! Don't worry, it was washed afterwards :-)


So of course that is another tick off my list. Meanwhile I have spent the bank holiday making a few pairs of jammy bottoms for my girls from vintage sheets. It seems I may have a few orders from friends for them now too (I do hope so, it will help my FQ Retreat pocket money!)

What a cheery quilt, the birds are lovely and the stripy binding is just ideal!

Sounds like your Bank Holiday weather will be perfect for sewing :)

Another fab quilt for the charity. I ran out of fabric for the binding on the last side of my 2nd quilt, not a happy bunny!
