Quilt Number Two

Last week I attended a Patchwork Class at Quiltessential at Cromford Mills, Matlock. This will be a lap quilt for my eldest niece for Christmas. I need to make six blocks the same, although I’m not sure I have enough fabric for all six so may make two of them with different patterned fabrics against the pale lilac. The owner of the shop Ann, runs the classes and makes up the samples, whilst her husband designs the quilt patterns! This design is called A Step Too Far.



Christmas is coming!!

As all crafty and creative people know, if you are making gifts for Christmas presents, or as in my case for Christmas Craft Fairs you have to start early! This weekend I am babysitting in Shropshire and wanted to take a hand sewing project with me to sew in the evenings. During my card making years I bought many cutting dies for my Bigshot and they are brilliant at cutting through felt, so this is what I am using to make some Christmas decorations!
