It started with a mini charm pack of 2 1/2 inch squares in the much anticipated Gardenvale fabric range by Jen Kingwell for Moda.
I cut some coordinating plains and started playing.
First I pieced together 25 squares into a 5 x 5 grid square . With the restriction of only one mini charm pack I was able to make only 3 of these, alternating Gardenvale prints with coordinating plains.
I was fortunate to be given a lovely retro print with sewing motifs this week which was a perfect match for these blocks.
Deciding to set them on point I ended up with this patchwork top, large enough for a table runner.
Now I have to decide on a backing fabric, and binding. I have already decided to handquilt in diagonal rows using a pale pink Aurofil 12 thread.
Sewing for the soul feels great!
I must also show you a picture of bags made by one of my wonderfully talented bag-workshop ladies. Robyn has made 2 fabulous bags. She has used a Kaffe cabbage print with great effect.
Happy sewing, Miriamx
