What a busy weekend.....

On Saturday I taught my patchwork class at the Craft Den. We had great fun, here is Penny laying out her blocks with the lovely orange sashing.
Here is Sandra sewing her lovely Amy Butler fabric together. These are her finished blocks below.
These are Wendy's blocks below, looking great together!
Penny decided to layout her blocks out differently as she preferred all the same blocks together in a row.

Overall we had a very productive day, the patchwork blocks all finished and the sashing cut and ready to put the quilt top together. I can't wait to see them all finished  at the next class in October! On Sunday I visited a craft and textile show, Lynne from the Craft Den had a great stall full of fabric. I couldnt resist buying this little bundle!
I was so inspired that I came home and cut them up. I wanted to make a design that would be a great beginners quilt. Here is a sneek peek......

I added another fabric to make the design zing! Check back later this week to see the finished quilt!

Hi Jo, had a great time Saturday, loving seeing it come together, and doing it is really helping with my depression. Thank you for the lift home too. Love Sandra x
