There's a long weekend coming up, and it looks as if it's going to be nice, which is a pretty unusual event in Britain! I thought I might dig out some old projects and see what I could get done.
This is my Antique Flower Garden quilt. I couldn't remember when I last worked on it, so I checked and it was summer 2009! In fact, looking at my old blog posts reminded me that the last time I did anything on this was the day Lulu came back after she went missing. I was sitting in the garden stitching when she reappeared. It's hard to believe that was almost 4 years ago and it's 9 months since she died. We miss her still.
I need to get this done - I think I only have a couple of flower blocks to do.
The plain blocks are machine stitched and this was back when I didn't know what I was doing. Some of the blocks aren't so great but I do love the fabrics and I'm sure it'll look passable when it's all together. I even have the wadding and backing, so there's no excuse!
And I also found my Leanne's House quilt. I got this in NZ, so it's even older. I started it on the machine, switched to hand piecing and then went back to the machine. I need to measure the blocks I've done and see if anything needs picking apart - I really didn't have a clue on this one and some stuff definitely isn't lining up properly!
Nic - I know I should be working on Farmer's Wife too. I've done a little. Will hopefully post a photo later this weekend :)
