Can't believe the weather has gone pear shaped again! Even got the heating on !
Had a very non sewing week, waiting for inspiration, as sometimes happens ! then wham-
saw this blog by dutch comfort and decided to give HST a go! Always been wary of the stretch element in this block- however, the half square method is great and a lot safer! ( its the one where you sew two squares right sides together, sew a seam 1/4 inch either side of the mid line diagonally, which you can mark with a pencil or iron into fabric on topby folding it in half diagonally.
Mmmm, nice with KF fabrics!
Then looked through my stash and found an old charm pack of Paisley and Plaid homespun, so decided to give that a go-
Its only small but will make a baby quilt I think with some borders added.
Well, what a beautiful bank holiday! The sun has been shining , I have been on a day trip thro Dorset and Somerset on a visit to Stourhead, a wonderful National Trust property in Wiltshire, with my daughter Sarah
The gardens at Stourhead.
The beautiful Regency house.
Recognise Gold Hill? from the Hovis adverts! It is in Shaftsbury.
On the sewing front- not much done this week- however I am in love with this cute baby quilt top in Oh Deer fabric from Moda.
Cant wait to back this one!
And finally, a few pics of the lovely crinkly edge tulip in my garden at the moment.
