Since before I broke my foot I had been in a sewing funk, I hadn't touched my sewing machine in months but I've now got my mojo back!
A few years ago I cut a quilt out from the Moda Fruitcake fabric. The pattern was from a blog that I've since lost the link to. I didn't know what to do with the cut out fabric so I put it to one side. DD came across it and asked me to make her a Christmas quilt with it so I had to put my thinking cap on. I've come up with an idea, I'll show you how it progresses.
Moda Strawberry Fields
This quilt was made from the scraps of Strawberry Fields fabric that I used to make DD's 2014 Christmas present quilt. It has 2 borders that I have since put on this evening.
I cut out and pieced this quilt last week and put its' borders on tonight, The fabric started life as a jelly roll and the patterns for this quilt & the Strawberry Fields quilt came from Pam & Nicky Lintott's book - Two from One Jelly Roll Quilts. I am going to make another quilt from this book with the rest of the Boutique fabric.
These 2 quilts are both made with rail fence blocks. The difference is in the size of the blocks. I had cut loads of 3.5 inch squares from charm packs and I was left with these 1.5 x 3.5 & 1.5 x 5" wide strips. Both of these quilts have now got their borders on too!
This is were I'm up to with my Hitchhiker scarf, I just keep knitting a bit here & there, mainly on suitable car journeys when I'm not driving.
I'm also knitting socks!
