Sewing therapy......

What a week! I had two pieces of bad news this week which I may blog about when I'm ready but for now I'm spending some time at home with my girls (above, playing in the garden). I was also in need of some sewing therapy, so I got out an old project I had on the go. It is a reversible quilt, this is a pile of the blocks with the reverse side showing.
This is the main side, pieced out of all my yellow/orange fabric scraps.

I love making reversible quilts as it is quilted as you go along, here is one I made a few years ago with some great fabric I bought in San Francisco. I just loved the melons with pinks and limes colours.
This is the reverse side, I collected fabric for a few years with, tea, coffee, cups and saucers on. So I have 2 quilts in one. I keep turning it over to suit whatever mood I'm in!
Here are a few closes up so you can see the fabric better.....
