Sew, sew……

Hi to all of my lovely readers and followers of this little blog 🙂 I hope all is well with you and there is plenty of Easter sunshine for you all to soak up. It is sunny here today in more ways than one.

Firstly, my pink pinwheels now have sashes and borders and the resulting quilt top is now sitting in the box labelled “To be quilted”. I’ve kept it simple and crisp with white, fit for a princess. I have to say, the sunny colours remind me of seaside candy rock, the sort which has the name of the seaside town running all the way through it. I bet that conjures up a few wonderful childhood memories for some of you.

I’ve had fun using all the different prints and rearranging the layout over and over again.

While I do that I can always think about my next project 🙂

And guess what’s happened in the garden today………

The first daffodil bud has bowed its head in the sunshine! Spring is here, Yay!!

Hopefully you will have fun in the sun this weekend too. You’ll find me at my sewing machine. Don’t want to get sun burn, do I?

Pinwheels in pink!

Happy Monday everyone!

It’s time to show you my latest finish. I made the quilt top a few weeks ago when I made my bags. I split the charm pack called Dogwood Trail by Moda into blues and pinks because I didn’t like them together. The blues plus a few scraps were made into my blue bag and the pink ones plus some white and pink solids were used to make this quilt.

I hope you like it 🙂
