Time to get quilting!

 I finished up "Cloverly" a month ago!



My LQS was having a fabric sale and as I am within five 

kilometres, 

I was able to 'click and collect' this fabric for a backing!

Not wanting to purchase more than was absolutely 

necessary,

I added some rectangles pieces to bring it up to size.

But in the meantime I had decided to make another 

scrap/stash quilt.

This is a free pattern/tutorial by 

Emily Dennis of Quilty Love.

It is available here:


It is called Scrap Stash Plus quilt- just perfect I thought!

I started pulling out some fabrics, being drawn to 

pastels for Spring!

It took no time at all to come together.

This one finishes at about 48 inches square.

So today I used up the last of my batting roll, 

purchased at the beginning of the year, I think to get 

these basted!

It will be great to get both these quilted and finished!

Then I intend to rummage through my dressmaking 

fabric and make something new for Spring/Summer.

By then we may be out of lockdown!

Happy days,

SUZ

Being drawn to bright colors as I am, I love the look of your Cloverly quilt. I am sure you will have a good time quilting both quilts, and also know you will make short work of the task. You are such a good starter-and-finisher. Making clothing next sounds like the right thing to do. I'm in the mood for that myself, but have quiltmaking obligations (too many) to finish first. Enjoy yourself, in spite of lockdown!

Clovery is surely a bright spot of sunshine for you under lockdown. And the pastels of the plus quilt are just lovely and calming. Something we all need right now. Hope you can have a summer full of freedom from more lockdowns.
