Finally quilting again

Another long break...

Have not done much sewing since coming back, but the upcoming wedding of my dear friend's daughter (and the kids favourite babysitter) has sent me back to the cutting table and sewing machine! Oh, I missed it and have my sew-jo back, yay!

We are making her and her husband-to-be a wedding quilt. With this fabric: 

and this pattern: 

Thimble Blossoms "Wild Things" by the gorgeous Camille Roskelley who writes one of my favourite blogs: Simplify

Here it is after lots of cutting and pinning:

Lots of sewing and ironing:

To this:

First completed block! And then I realised I had cut in the wrong direction...

So, another layercake of fabric was ordered from the fatquartershop and the cutting started again, off to do some more sewing now.

Good thing to come out of this is lots of extra fabric for a quilt for me ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Long time since my last blog entry...good reason though as I was preparing for a 2 months overseas trip. As we are nearing the end of our holiday and will be back very soon here a few photos :

German Christmas Markets are the best

Love Rome!


Skiing in Austria rocks!

Only a few days left and I am looking forward to come home, defrost and get back into quilting!
(My friend and neighbour bought a Quilting Frame, how exciting is that!!!)

Thanks for stopping bye.
