This month involved a few less visits to the studio than I would have liked but sadly ill children and half term conspired against me. However we had some nice sunny days and I even crossed the river and took a picture looking back at my studio for a change. One visit was in the evening but the picture was just black so of no interest really!
Inside the studio (top row) I made a second Tic Tac Toe block – this one for me to keep. We were in need of something bright to add to our hallway so I recreated a smaller Fair Isle Table Runner (tutorial) last week. It was the posting date for #makefriendsswap on Friday and I sent off this cute fabric basket. I now need to make some for me.
(Middle row) My friend Lou (@peachytwins) visits some Tuesday mornings, and one week she bought her scraps! My first ever attempt at paper piecing and if it turns out okay this will be my mini quilt for the Cotton and Steel swap. I tried printing some dots on fabric. I wanted to join in with Le Challenge but wasn’t organised enough. Maybe this month.
(Bottom row) I took a deep breath and finally got on with quilting the ‘Tiles’ quilt I made after Kat posted a IG picture many many moons ago. I will blog about this properly but I wanted to have to finished to gift it this week. She definitely liked it.
Not pictured I have finished my Totoro Mini quilt for the #studioghibliswap. I have also made (and forgot to photograph *sigh*) bunting for the Nursery School Bake Off competition, a Coco top for me that didn’t work out so well, and 5 zip pouches for various birthdays.
This little something was my favourite this month. The blue and the yellow just looked amazing together and I knew that the recipient would love it. My favourite thing is making something for someone special, thinking of them the whole time you are making it.
I have felt disorganised and frustrated for most of February so I am going to get my thinking cap on, review my FAL Q1 post and work out what needs doing this month. Lists, lists and more lists. That always makes me feel better. This Tiles Quilt was one of my projects on my Finish Along 2015 Q1 list.
