Do you know what I thought when first I saw the ‘Spa’ charm packs, by Deb Strain, for Moda? Of course you don’t, so I tell you. 🙂

brand new and ancient and the bluest blue ever

Seems appropriate for today… no?


some thing to watch for

Dec/12 Seascapes Charm Pack.

Due out decembre 2012. Have I said I *love* Deb Strain prints?

***these images shamelessly borrowed from Green Fairy quilts (the link at the top) only b/c the Moda website keeps telling me the feature to view fabrics is down for maintenance, or temporarily unavailable…***

Summer fun

The first quilt ever I pieced, this, in July 2009. It waited for quilting, and was quilted on a borrowed 440QE, before I could afford my own. Bringing it out to display today, some reasonable weather meant I could try for decent photos. Again, my usual apology; the quilt *is* square; I seem unable to photograph my projects so that they *look* square!

Made from a Deb Strain ‘summer fun’ charm pack, and a little yardage, the borders are asymmetric by design. Keen quilters will recognise a ‘disappearing 9 patch’ design.

How can it be the Longest Day, and supposedly summer, and I am so cold that I had to put the heating on?

Also, we have Warnings for heavy rain.

A typical British summer then, no? 🙂

I show you instead my hand pieced 4 diamond stars. 2 are ‘blazing star’ and 2 are ‘sunset star’. The half one, in sunflower print, was fussy cut by hand. I am happyhappy sewing these by hand, although it gets me some funny looks on the train to and from work! Whatevs, no?

À bi!
