Long Time, No Post

Has it really been 4 months?  DD has just gone back to school after being home for 13 weeks!  Only 8 of those real holidays; the rest study leave for IGCSE exams.  After travelling to Australia and UK to see family & friends, we are back to reality.

I’m busily working on my quilt for the Singapore Quilt Challenge, so no peeks yet.  Just waiting for the border fabric before finishing it off.

Whilst I’ll never have the patience for real hand-quilting, I can cope with the large-stitch, perle thread, sashiko version.  This is my ‘99 Treasures quilt’ which feels like it’s been around for about 95 years.

I finally finished off another cushion, the design which came from Oh Fransson! at this sew-along at Sew Mama Sew.

SpiderwebCushion2The Spiderweb block was foundation pieced using odd-sized scraps. The fabrics are  Lantern Bloom by Laura Gunn.

The machine quilting is just random spirals around the spiderwebs with a variegated thread.
