Comfort Sewing


I completed a large cushion cover  this week. I rescued the fabric, on it's way to the tip. The fabric was an off cut from a parcel of decorating fabrics, a friend no longer wanted. It has been awaiting attention, for some time. It is a rather rich type of fabric, so perhaps I need to find an equally rich, complimentary,  brocade or even a velvet, to keep it company. More thought needed on that possibility. Back to another cover under progress. Enjoy.

Same Projecr Although a Different Colourway Block.


Another completion for The Splendid Sampler quilt,, this time  very different coloured fabric scraps.
When embarking on a scrap quilt, one thinks one's fabric collection will be somewhat diminished, It is amazing how little fabric one uses in such an endeavour. Here is the latest block


I'm working on preparations for a cushion cover or maybe two, before returning to my Splendid Sampler blocks. A little variety in the meantime.  Enjoy.

A New 2017 TSS Bonus Block.


This is a new bonus block for the 2017 start, of The Splendid Sampler II. It is a continuing adventure for me, I'm keen to get the unfinished quilt blocks from TSS 1, done & together. I thought I'd do a QAYG (quilt as you go). However, I wanted to get a little on with the project to see what sort of fabric & setting would suit the the quilt, for finishing. At half way, I've left the QAYG a tad late, more contemplation needed on that.This is the bonus block "The Buds of May," by Jane Davidson. I did alter the leaf placement a tad. Enjoy.
