WIP Wednesday!

Hi all,

On Saturday I went to my first sewing day for this year, it was great to sit and sew with friends, new and old. We met at Christine’s, some of us are working on the same pattern but we could also bring whatever hand sewing we wanted to work on.

I picked up my new pattern pack for the Afternoon Delight quilt and quickly got to work!

Afternoon delight the beginning

This is my first block for the quilt and I am half way through my second block. I am using needle turn appliqué, mostly Kaffe fabrics and ‘Breeze’ Bella Solids for my background.

Unfortunately though I haven’t even turned my sewing machine on for nearly a week…really! So my American Beauty top hasn’t gone anywhere yet. I seriously need a motivational kick!

Beautiful block! Your applique is awesome! It's going to be a stunning quilt with all that yummy fabric. Don't worry, your motivation will come back in due course. It always does ;). xx
