Time to Play!

No more GCSE exams for my middle daughter, and end of term on Friday (& birthday) for the youngest, means .....

... a meal out with the funniest teenagers I'm privileged to call my girls!

And as the last of my classes are winding down this week for the summer break, I get to play!

Drunkards Path

I was inspired by Aylin's gorgeous cushion, and have been wanting to do more with my Sizzix drunkard's path die.  So when I eventually decided on some fabrics & scraps, I set to cutting and sewing.

I've actually finished 5 x 14" blocks and sewed them together for a potential table runner, but I couldn't fit them all into 1 photograph!!  Once again I find Leanne's technique for sewing curves much quicker and simpler than the endless pinning method!

I'm also working on some Farm House blocks from the Farm Girl Vintage book (pg 27).

Farmhouse blocks - Farm Girl Vintage As usual I've deviated from the quilt-a-long block schedule currently running on Lori's blog!!

My plan is to make the Farmhouse Lane Quilt shown on page 128 of the book, but truth be told, I want to make every single thing in this book!!

Fingers crossed I can stay focused and not get distracted by one of the many other beautiful projects in the book!

Happy sewing!
