Fresh Sewing Day

March was a fab month for me.  I had so many wonderful experiences, learnt so many new things and had a few makes too, sometimes it's easy to forget just how much you've achieved in 4 weeks. So for the first time in ages, I'm linking up with Fresh Sewing Day to remind myself how busy I've been!

First was the last day of teaching my Beginners Quilting Class.   Here they are hard at work :-)

Shortly after that I attended a 2 day FMQ and Trapunto workshop with the wonderfully talented and inspirational Philippa Naylor.  If you want to see quilts of the highest order, check out her website.  You won't be disappointed.  

Less than a week later it was the Jersey Textile Showcase, and I went to workshops with textile artist Ineke Berlyn, and local textile artist Christine Witham. I made a lovely Lutrador tulip collage with Ineke, and a sunflower with Christine.  It was so much fun turning my hand to new skills, which definitely had a floral theme going on!

I also made 5 Super Hero capes for my daughter's class, which you can read about here.

See my girl in green! 

There's a couple of other makes that I can't share with you yet, but I did have lots of fun making some Amy Butler Economy Blocks...

I've made good progress on my son's Robot Medallion Quilt...

And I've been putting my Wee Wander fabrics by Sarah Jane to good use too...progress update coming soon!

So if I'm feeling exhausted after March, I guess it's no wonder.  Will April be a quieter month?  I wouldn't have thought so!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by,

  1. What a brilliant month you had!

  2. Wow! What a busy and productive month! Love the writing capes!

  3. Way to go!!! Love those capes and the Robot Quilt is so awesome!!

  4. That robot quilt is great. I find that sometimes it's hard to find good boy fabrics that are still great, and those are wonderful.

  5. Exhausting but productive - brilliant robot quilt (what a lucky boy!), and the little economy blocks are just so sweet! xCathy

  6. Sooooo….if I've guessed right, those gorgeous Amy Butler economy blocks are coming my then!!

  7. Wow! You have been super busy - really jealous, would love to have taken Philippa Naylor class..I will have to visit her site!

  8. Thanks for sharing all your great month's projects and activities - I agree Philippa Naylor is fantastic, so inspiring and generous. And I love your economy blocks. Look forward to seeing more in due course.
