In-between Projects

I'm afraid there isn't much sewing going on that I can post about at the moment! I'm making progress on the wrapping paper quilt - the top is finished and I'm now working on the back. But other than that I am:

Wondering how to move forward with this project

I had planned to make a picnic-rug-quilt with these fabrics, but the design I put together requires pretty much complete accuracy to work. Considering that I made the first blocks in my pre-rotary-cutter days and I haven't yet resolved my 'foot isn't actually 1/4" wide' issue, this might not be the best way to go! So I'm not quite sure what to do here. The quilt definitely needs pinwheels though - they're so summery :)

 Love the pink pinwheel!

Thinking about cushion covers

Having had our cushions for nearly 3 years now, they're starting to look a little worse for wear. I picked up a couple of cheap cushions from Ikea so I can have a go at cushion covers. Wondering about going for sparkle punch (love the name and the design, don't know if I'd have the patience for an entire quilt so a cushion cover might work well) or some cathedral windows (I'm hoping these aren't as tricky as they look!). Laurence prefers the cathedral windows, what do you think?

Possibly making another table-runner

A friend has asked if I could make one as a wedding present for her friend. Exciting times! Hoping to meet up to pick out fabrics soon.

So all in all there's not a lot to show here! But I'm sure there will be more, all in good time...


  1. I did cathedral windows at a workshop when I was 14, so they can't be too tricky :) bit fiddly from what i remember, but definitely doable!

  2. OOoo they are both so beautiful! I wanted to say go with sparkle punch purely for the name, but then the cathedral windows are lovely too... Make both :-)
