I hope you enjoyed Mother's Day!
This is the Kiss in Time quilt, so far. Next I need to cut fabrics and make the borders. I am really enjoying how this one is coming together.
It was a busy weekend, so little time to sew. I considered fabric for my new quilt alongs and I cut some of it up.
These are one inch strips cut off my Bella Parade fat quarter set. I cut three strips of each colour for now. I decided that I am going to play with the quilt along ideas a bit and make a cousin or sister to the actual quilt (you can see that lovely quilt over on the sidebar). I am, for now, just going to make a whole lot of slightly wonky and slightly improv log cabin blocks with these strips and then see how I am inspired to put them together.
If you look at the ruler on my sewing table (the bottom line is inches, top centimetres) you can see how little these are. Maybe I will make some of them larger, I'm not sure yet.
I have also been quilting, quilting my quilt as you go blocks. Some work projects are going to slow all quilting down for a while, good thing quilting is a journey, not a race.
