Making Progress

5 Comments

In amongst various other jobs I managed to do some sewing this weekend.  I had some patchwork blocks I had made ages ago with nothing particular in mind so I decided to put them together to create a small quilt.  It will be given to a work colleague who is pregnant with a baby girl.

Here it is draped over the ironing board with the batting and backing attached.  I have begun stitching it together by machine stitching along the joins of some of the blocks.

I know that my techniques are nothing like quilters would use, but it is made entirely with scraps, offcuts and thrifted fabrics and a generous dose of love and care.

  1. That’s the best kind of quilt! Loads of absolutely amazing quilting fabrics out there, and patchwork made from said fabrics, but the best quilts imo are the ones made from scraps. Leftovers from sewing clothes. All kinds of fabric mixed up, and with real personality.
