the weather outside is frightful


but the quilting is so delightful! I've been working on the vintage quilt I was commissioned to hand quilt. It is huge and I've only worked on it from time to time since the summer (work commitments and kids tend to take over, the customer thankfully understands this!) but now I'm focusing all my attention on finishing it. I don't think it will be done by Christmas but at least I can have a good stab at it ;)


I did sneak in some more hand pieced green tea and sweet beans blocks this week as well. Two Double Pinwheels:


and a Churn Dash:


I've got the next Churn Dash all cut out and ready to go but I've got more hand quilting to do...


The responses to my modern fabric bundle giveaway have had me laughing my head off :)

  1. Your gt&sb blocks are looking very pretty! Is that some liberty in the vintage hexi quilt? Linda

  4. Hand quilting that vintage quilt must be a real pleasure! Savour every stitch! And some selfish sewing of your Green Tea and Sweet Beans is the perfect reward!

  5. Such gorgeous hexagons, it's in the right hands to finish it off with pretty stitches.
