some favourite patterns

quiet Sunday = what can I sew now ??

I'd seen this pattern by Nova some time back & knew it was for me 

a new thread / scrap catcher was needed 

this is the 7" of the nesting bowls

this hand dyed blue cotton/ linen came home from London with me last year

& was asking to be paired with my some Liberty prints.  ( the blue & white is my fav of all time )

Lined in a print from "quilt blocks" a line by Ellen Luckett Baker

Next up a lap-top sleeve for my sister

This pattern was devised by Florence of Flossie Teacakes

I changed it up a little so that the flap & pocket were on opposite sides

( owner's request , she liked a minimal look )

Need one for me next

lovely nobbly linen & cotton/linen print by Heather Ross

Both patterns were very well written & easy to follow 

I loved the many pictures clearly showing all the construction stages

There are a many babies coming this year & this little quilt top will go to Mt Isa in the far north west of


a wee boy called Seamus

off to baste & bind :)

I've just been enjoying scrolling down through your lovely blog and it was a wonderfully unexpected surprise to find that you'd used one of my patterns. It looks beautiful. Florence x
