Last week we had our main family holiday - an extended family, with nine of us from 73 down to 6. Lovely. Even better, whilst the others go surfing or cycling I'm left in peace to sew - yes, my sewing machine comes on holiday too, along with plenty of fabric and ideas! This year was quite productive, and this is what I made:
Don't look Now - which I made for the recently arrived baby girl of the people we were renting the holiday house from. Very subtle personalisation - just a first name and a year quilted between the two birds.
I'm pleased with this. Although the little bits for each flower are quite fiddly they are easy (and quiet!) to make during evenings. They are the only time consuming part of the project, and once they are fused onto the cushion front you can zip along with the machine stitching and produce something very pretty indeed.
So, quite a productive holiday, especially as I made a couple of blocks for my C&G too!
I'm hoping to make a couple more little quilts over the summer with the other orphan blocks that I've got littering my 'design wall' (I use the term loosely). The trouble is that I only have tiny amounts of them - and that the fabrics don't play together in any way - so I think that it will be three small quilts and pulling out the same sort of fabrics to construct other blocks to complement them!
I hope that your summer is giving you time to sew too.
