Progress this weekend

On Friday morning I made this little guy for a package I put together for a little girl that’s just become a big sister. The pattern is from the current issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting. Whilst I rarely make things from magazines (I just tend to read the articles), this was very tempting as they are so quick to make! There’s a larger mummy version too but I really had to leave the house by this point. I traced the pattern pieces on freezer paper and it made cutting the pattern out easy, plus no magazines were harmed in the making!

Saturday was International Quilting Day so I decided I had better do some sewing, despite doing a big spring clean and having people round for tea. I made this 22″ cushion, which will be to add to my MIL’s collection for Mother’s Day…

There’s a covered zip on the back and it helped dent some of my strip scrap collection, though I’ve also made a few log cabin blocks recently which is also assisting with this. I have another cushion to make her soon too as it is her birthday next month.

And then the last stitches went in this morning, but I’ve put the Row by Row quilt top together finally (blurry pic) after what, at least 6 months of having the rows? Now if I can get this quilted and finished for the end of the month I will have had the most successful finish along quarter yet!
