Summer Silliness!

 So here is my project using those QST's I talked about - all laid out on my 'design bed' - no design wall on holiday, but when you are sewing at the dressing table there is likely to be handy bed, isn't there?
 Here it is all sewn together - an off centre design in the modern style. 

I'm going to make it a bit less modern, though, as I've decided that it needs a couple of borders to bring the size up a little.  Planning a soft grey followed by an orange, so it should be nice and zingy.  Then I'll need to make time to turn it from a flimsy into an actual quilt!
I've got so many projects flying around my head at the moment, and so many WIPs that I want to make more progress on, but in the real world (as opposed to my parallel sewing world!) I haven't had much time this week.

I did have time to have a play date with Benta, though.  I made this pin cushion (about 3" square) in the same time that the prolific Benta made three!  See them (and more!) on her blog here!

She also gave me one of her selvedge pouches - aren't I the lucky one!  It's a very cool bit of sewing!

Happy summer sewing, everyone!


  1. I think your quilt is lovely. The unexpected color pairings, especially that bit of pale aqua, gives it a fresh, modern feel. I don't think borders will detract from that at all.

  2. I have way too many WIP's but can't help myself from starting even more. I have sewing ADD.

  3. Loving your grey quilt! Thanks for the play date xxx
