This is...

.......what I am surprised I like.






Quilting.


I never thought I would have the patience to sort my way through all those fiddly little pieces and patterns with too many numbers in them. But I like it, in fact I love it. Sewing down binding is my new favourite way to relax in the evenings.


Thanks again to the fab Miss three buttons for being the hostess with the mostess and Victoria from earl and cookie for suggesting this weeks theme.

Those fabrics work so well together. That blue fabric keeps popping up so many times for me this week, in books, online... it's beautiful. :)

I love your quilt and also the little dress despite the sizing issues! I have some of that flowery fabric and have never been able to decide what to make with it....... Good luck with Mathilda's Market. I was considering doing a stall but don't have time this year, so maybe next year......

I love sewing on binding and it would appear that you either love it or hate it. I absolutely love those fabrics. What is the binding red and white fabric?
