11 June 2014


In March 2013, I was very fortunate and won a fabric giveaway hosted by Di Mill - I gave some of the fabrics to the girls in our stitching group and kept the rest.  There was a selection of Comma by Zen Chic and Avalon by Fig Tree & Company.

The yellow, grey, chalk and black Comma fabrics (plus a load of extras I bought) were used to make Picnic - a quilt designed by Kim Brackett for one of her Scrap Basket books - and the quilt was finished on Sunday night.

"Picnic" - 80-1/2" x 98", quilted by Sarah.

Stitched out some labels on the embroidery machine and these have been sewn to the back of the quilt.

The quilt will go to its new home over the weekend.

All the Basket Case blocks that I cut out a couple of weeks ago have been sewn up.

I'd prefer this top to be bigger, so I've cut out another 12 blocks in the hope of using up as much of this Oh Cherry Oh fabric as possible.

2 sleeps until Sarah arrives in Sydney and 3 sleeps until the class with Camille Roskelley - should be a fantastic weekend coming up.

I love your Basket Case 'flimsy'! I have been working on a similar design, which I also got together over the weekend! I must get a blogpost up! I am really jealous about you going to Camille's class! (sad face….)

I like the picnic quilt. Not usually a fan of yellow but it looks good with the greys. You must be stitching up a storm every night.
