Quilt Festival

Check out the fantastic Quilt Festival at Farfield Mill, Sedburgh, Cumbria. There are some very well known names involved, including Pauline Burbidge, I love her work. I've got to get up there and have a look. Runs until Sunday 7th April 2013.

New Year - First Finish

Now the festivities are over I can get back to some sewing..... yeah.

For my first finish of the New Year, I made up this cute little book panel from Moda. It was very badly cut at the end of the bolt so it's been hanging around my sewing studio for some time and I've had to make some modifications to it. This is one time when not rushing in with your first idea really paid off, I had been going to abandon some of the pages, but today it occurred to me that if I made into a rag book I could keep all the pages. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and in fact I prefer it to the original. Result!
