I say this every time. Every Single Time. I cannot believe how much time has gone by. One post for 2019 and none for 2018. Life has been pretty full the last couple years and unfortunately it didn't include patchwork or quilting. Nor did it include blogging or even reading blogs, which is a great shame.
But I did start a new quilt today. Log Cabin is one of my all time favourite blocks and is the one block I can sew when I am totally un-motivated and it will get me back into sewing. Did some strip cutting today and actually got six blocks done.
Sweet Escape is a gorgeous quilt in Grey's an Navy's by Camille Roskelley. Simple but beautiful and sure to look lovely on our bed. Have had to add to the layout so it will fit. Not sure I can add a photo
For many years every Christmas and every Easter break I would spend several days holed up in my sewing room and sew and sew and sew. Somehow that hasn't happened for a long time, but this year I have 4 days and am going to make the most of it. I have a long list of "stuff" that needs doing but I have a feeling that it's all going to wait....well I did do one load of washing today.
So these are the fabrics I'm using Camille Roskelley B&C Wovens plus a Grey and a White background fabrics.
One of my favourite tools for Log Cabins is the Short Cuts ruler. Saves so much time and you have your strips cut in super fast time
And so it begins......
