The winter school holidays ended up being a sew-free two weeks. I hadn’t intended to take time out from sewing but it turned out to be a welcome break. So welcome in fact that even though the kids went back to school on Monday, I still haven’t done any sewing. I have been playing with fabric though, I made this pile for a new quilt I’m planning. I’m not sure if I’ll use these prints or break with tradition and use solids…

Last week this absolutely adorable purse arrived in the mail from my friend Melissa (Clothwork on Instagram). Melissa also sent a pile of beautiful Maze and Vale prints which I’ve fallen completely in love with (I’m planning on using them in the quilt above).

And… today my Wagon Wheel quilt arrived back from the long armer. Oh my goodness, I’m in love with that figure eight quilting. I’ll be getting this bound ASAP! It could be just the quick finish I need to get sewing again!

    I love the orange and raspberry stash of fabrics! Your Wagon Wheel quilt is so beautiful and the qulting adds an extra!
    I took three of my finished quilt-tops to the long arm quilter yesterday. I’ve chosen some very airy-fairy quilting patterns. It’s always a surprise to see the result!

    I was the opposite to you – sewed like mad all holidays, then it stopped (as I go back to work – I am a teacher). Your wagon wheel quilt looks fantastic with the loopy quilting – yes, please get it bound quickly so we can the finished result!! I love your pile of orange and pinks – would be a great quilt to have ready for the summer…
