March 2018

Well February goes out with a cold snowy end!! The best place in cold snowy weather is indoors – creating and that’s what I have been doing.

I have completed the HST Sampler quilt in the Tilda fabric and that has joined all the others hanging over the bannisters, I will have to try and find another place for a few of them!

As soon as I had finished the HST Sampler quilt, I started on another new one, Daisy, Daisy!! This quilt is bright and cheerful, my sister mentioned that it was a lovely quilt for Spring, whereas I thought it was a great quilt for brightening up the last few days… weeks of winter! I ‘dived’ into my stash of fabrics and I am using, yellows, oranges, pink and mauves to make it and a splash of green for the binding strips. The main motif is a daisy flower and I have designed three different squares using it.

The rest of February has been creating smaller projects, finishing the Cathedral Window bag I was using for demonstration in class and small fabric art pictures. Plus making postcards and readying others for hand embroidery as Mother’s Day isn’t far away (11th March) and Easter is only at the end of the month!!

(remember I regularly post on Facebook!)
