Sewing Patterns

We've just had a long weekend in Australia and it started off very well when I had dinner with Barbara - haven't seen her for so long and we had a lot to catch up on.

A little while ago I saw a link on Facebook that Fiona had liked to You Can Make This - a very dangerous link for me to follow.  I bought only two patterns but could have bought plenty more.  Spent a night cutting out last week and made them up on Saturday.  Both patterns are very cute and very easy to follow.

First up was a very cute, vintage-styled romper.

And next was a swaddling blanket made in very light voile - perfect for a summer baby.

The blanket is so quick to make, I made a few more for presents using fabrics in the stash.

Yesterday afternoon it was time to get on with "Best Friends Forever".


The quilt top is now together and the binding has been sewn on.  I've cut the edges straight as I think that will suit the purpose of the quilt better.

Lunchtime stitching today and hopefully will finish stitching down the binding tonight while watching the tennis.

Karen brought my "Not Quite Civil War" quilt back last Tuesday and the binding has been sewn on but not stitched down yet.

I love the hearts and flowers quilting design - it doesn't overpower the piecing in the blocks.

Hello Lynda,

Ooh that romper looks so lovely, can just imagine a baby in that one. The swaddling cloths are great, so useful. Loving the finishes you are nearly at with your quilts. Have fun with the Best Friend's stitching.

Happy days.
