Another month has whizzed by, and as usual there's too many projects and not enough time. But it's been a good month, with a day trip to London (you can read about it here) to visit both the Tate Modern and the Kaffe Fasset A Life in Colour Exhibition and a few finishes as well.
I think a collage is in order.
I finished my Anchors Away Quilt, made some nautical bunting for my friend's son's first birthday and I've completed my I Heart NY quilt top. This picture doesn't really show the scale of it. It's bigger than a cot quilt and the squares are 3" x 3". So it took a while to chain piece all 234 of them! But I did it in just over a week and it's now basted and ready for quilting.
One day this will make a stunning quilt, but for now I've made some bunting to put on my display at The Harbour Gallery.
And while I was at Liberty in London I bought these wonderfully retro fabrics. I can't tell you how much I am in love with them, especially the button prints. For me, purchasing fabric in person rather than the internet is just such a treat (there's not a decent fabric shop here in Jersey). I loved being able to audition fabrics in person, rather than having to flick between internet pages, use my imagination and hope for the best!
And most recently I have fallen in love with these fabrics by Carina Gardiner.
The plan is to use these to make a divided basket, following a Noodlehead pattern. Ideally, in time for the Fat Quarterly Retreat. But I am working on a couple of commissions at the moment, along with my New York quilt (which is for me) so I am just hoping I will have time. July's ages away right??!
Finally, I will leave you of a picture of Jersey. On the Bank Holiday we discovered a gorgeous new viewpoint, that we hadn't come across before. We had a lovely picnic and the sky was clear blue, as you can see. I didn't even have to edit this photo, these are the true colours. If you ever come to Jersey you must go there!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Please do come back on Monday, I'm having a giveaway!
