Aaaah. How are you all doing? We’ve just got back from our summer holiday, so I’m feeling suitably… relaxed… I’ve been without my sewing machine for over a week, so been doing a bit of tapestry instead. Slowly….
So I don’t really have anything new to show you, but I remembered I completely forgot to share this little quilt I made a couple of months ago – it was a commission (sqeeeee!!) from a friend of a friend. I was a little hesitant to accept at first, as life is already pretty busy, but then I realised that it was an opportunity to be seized. So I seized it!
The brief was ‘Something about 2′ square, with strawberries.’ I cast about a bit for coordinating fabrics – I didn’t have any strawberry prints, but managed to find a decent selection online, including a tiny scrap of this large scale vintage print. There was only enough for 3 large squares, which helped to determine the final design.
I kept it pretty simple, although I also pieced the back in one large-scale block to make it kind of double-sided.
Pretty proud of those points, actually ;), though you can’t see them that clearly here! It was lovely to send it off all wrapped up to its new owner.
We’re all back home now, so I can get back to all my half-done projects. There are many…
Hope you’re all enjoying the end of summer! See you soon 🙂
