Whenever I don't blog for a while it's usually because my sewing has overtaken me and that's definitely been the case recently. I have so many sewing projects on the go at the moment and I am determined to get some finished this month.
First up I can show two finished Kaleidoscopic cushions that are based on a quilt by Reene at Nellie's Niceties. These have been fun to make and use up lots of scraps. I'm going to make a couple more in different colour combinations soonish. I fancy orange being the main colour in one of them.
I am still working on the scrappy quilt to go with these cushions in our living room. Initially I was going to produce 16 scrap blocks and then add sashing, but I realised that I would have to buy the sashing and that seemed at odds with my determination to sew as much stash as possible this year. Instead I have now decided to make more blocks and to make this one giant quilt. I'm now anticipating making 49 scrappy blocks. So far I've made 25, so I have just edged over the half way mark. Psychologically that is significant - I feel I can repeat what I have made so far!
In the meantime I am also working on another project. Someone has requested I make them a duvet cover. I've never made one before, but I am making good progress. As it's someone else's request I am having to use their fabric choices. They fell in love with this fabric:
I would not have touched this fabric; it's not my thing at all, but I am having fun sewing the bits together and it's good to have a challenge. I'm hoping to have it finished for next Friday.
Have a lovely weekend!
