My sewing machine and I have been spending some time becoming re-acquainted with each other. It all started with the tea cups. Many happy moments were spent feeding fabric through the cogs and wheels of my machine, and it made me realise that it has been such a very long time since I've sat sewing pieces of fabric together. Not anymore.
This weekend, any chance I could, when no-one else was taking any notice of what I was doing, I would sneak off to do some more chain piecing of 1.5 inch squares onto 4.5 inch squares. There are 576 little squares to sew, and I'm on a mission!! There was a moment when I thought fabric bunting draped around the room could work a treat, but no, on I went.
This is a quilt I have mentioned before, back in January in fact ... oh my gosh!! It has sat for quite some time now progressing Not At All, not one little bit, not one single seam, gathering dust you could say, but now I have a secret aim that this will be a finished quilt top within say, ooooh the next week? (or maybe two!)
It is such a joy to play with so many vibrant and stunning fabrics. Thank you Mr. Fassett. I actually can't wait now until this baby's finished.
