This has meant not much sewing but plenty of sitting around in the garden, topping up the kids' sun cream and entreating them to drink some more water.
However I did manage to get a little sewing done last night and as a result I have finished the top of my second quilt for Siblings Together
The pattern is Super Zig by Monica Solorio-Snow of Happy Zombie. It is a free pattern available here.
The fabrics are klona tan and the prints are all from Natural Effects by Michele D'Amore and were donated by Katy of I'm a ginger monkey.
Apart from a couple of hiccups when I sewed pieces together upside down it came together really fast. I've still got quite a lot of the prints left so I'm planning a bit of an improv back - I've never attempted that before so hopefully it will turn out OK.
I've also had a couple of fabric deliveries over the last few days
|little lady came to investigate|
A jelly roll of Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket for Moda.
And most exciting
A complete fat quarter bundle of Summersville by Lucie Summers for Moda. I bought it from The Stock Room on Etsy and it was a fantastic price, even allowing for the postage. And it didn't get stopped by customs which made it even better value. The service was great - posted really fast with excellent communication.
I think these are my favourite prints
But it changes every time I look at them!
If you have been thinking about getting some Summersville then do it! The prints are so gorgeous and the colours are beautiful. I can think of so many projects they would be perfect for.
Anyway I'm off to have a glass of wine in the garden!
See you soon
