Sewing up a storm

The first week of January has been wonderful, despite the oppressively hot weather Sydney has been experiencing. Sitting in front of a big fan I have been stitching away.

Here are the blocks

Here they are on point

I love the way the placement of the colours and shapes lead your eyes around the quilt. There always seems to be something interesting to notice. 

I have now been playing with ways to set the blocks into a cohesive pattern for a quilt top and I will show you on my next post. What I can tell you is that there is no wastage of fabric, as the left over strips can be put together to make a pieced backing

The quilt pattern will be available soon.

I hope that 2015 has gotten off to a great start for you too.
Happy sewing, Miriamx

  1. I love the colours and designs on this quilt top . What will be its use ? To hang or for a bed ?

    1. Thank you! This quilt has a finished size of 60" x 60" , making it useful as a bed topper, a lap quilt or a table topper. I like this size because it is easy to make, quilt on a domestic machine if desired, and versatile.

  2. I simply want to tell you that I am new to weblog and definitely liked this blog site. Very likely I’m going to bookmark your blog . You absolutely have wonderful stories. Cheers for sharing with us your blog. best sewing machines for beginners
