A new quilt!

My quilt has been finished for a few weeks but I just hadn't 
had a chance to post about it. 
I have called it "Tilly's Old Roses" and it is made 
using the Tilda Old Rose fabric range. Looking at the quilt, 
I probably should have pressed it before taking photos!
I used the Eliza Raspberry for backing. 
It was beautifully quilted with a damask rose design 
I'm going to be pretty quiet for the next couple of months. 
As I mentioned in my last post, Noel and I will be 
road tripping in our camper van. Hopefully, 
I might get time to catch up with everyone's blogs 
if we have wifi and are having a quiet night in!

Friday Night Sew-In

Last night I worked on some EPP for a special group project 
for a little while. I also started getting my sewing projects 
together ready to take on a trip. Noel and I are heading off 
in our camper and making our way over to Western Australia.
It's very exciting and even more so as we're going to be
catching up with Maria from Life On The Block.
Thank you to Wendy for hosting us last night.

A Tilda Swap

Dawn at Kitty Rose Cottage recently organised a 
Favourite Tilda Fat Quarter Swap. We each sent her a fat quarter 
of our favourite Tilda fabric which Dawn then forwarded 
to a mystery partner who then made a swap gift using that fat quarter.
 We could also add extra fabric to what we were making. 
This is the fabric my partner Kerry sent. Isn't it gorgeous! 
It was from the Bumblebee range. 
Straight away I knew I wanted to make her Gail Pan's 
"Happily Ever After Sewing Bag" from her book 
Patchwork Loves Embroidery.
Instead of using Gail's stitchery, I did Kerry's initial using 
the "Stitcher's Alphabet" by Michelle Ridgeway.
I remembered I had these cute little heart charms so added one.
Kerry loved her bag!
This was my fat quarter that was sent to Julie (it was not a direct swap). 
It is from the Tilda Old Rose range. 
The colour is more like this than the photos below.
I received a lovely project pouch from Julie. 
It has a plastic front so you can easily see what's inside.

With the scraps, Julie made me a luggage tag. 
This is perfect as Noel and I are heading to Scotland later in the year!

Friday Night Sew-In

After doing a couple of mending projects, 
I started preparing the binding for my new quilt. 
I had hoped to get the binding stitched on 
but all I managed was making the binding!
Thank you to Wendy for hosting us.
