Somehow it's now the 3rd August - how on earth did that happen!
I have a brief post, lots going on around here and sorting
fabrics and books and odd bits and pieces for my sale
at the Guild meeting tomorrow.
Moss Garden now has borders and the binding fabric
arrived two day ago, I've pinned a wee piece
up against the border just so you get an idea.
I'm intending to have plain diagonal crosshatching, this I can
handle myself as the quilt isn't too large.
Come Monday the grey check design flannel is coming off the wall
and an off white plain flannel going on. It will be much
easier to place quilts without the white lines distorting.
Closer view of the binding, it's a lovely combination
of green on purple, not a dark purple, I went with the original from the pattern.
So, not much at all on the quilting side but I do have three
new books. The first one is the Kaffe release,
all Medallion quilts. Some are variations on quilts
from his previous books using different colour combinations and settings.
The quilt on the cover appeals to me and I'm not really an
Autumn colour person.
Quite a few of the quilts are on the large side but I guess a border
could be left off on some of them as long as it doesn't spoil the look of the quilt.
Two other books have joined the stack by my chair, the one
below covers English style of interior design, it was on special
at a great price.
Soft colour, relaxing classic design and oh so different from
this one below!
The colour combinations are glorious but I have to admit
that some are a little over the top even for me.
Great ideas for quilts!
It's shockingly cold and really wet here today and would be a perfect
day to sit and sew but that will have to wait until Monday.
The camellias are being battered by the weather but some of ours
are in sheltered spots, the one below for example
caught during a brief lull in the rain. I now see
that the snails have been feasting a little.
Enjoy your weekend and happy quilting until next time.
