Progress at Last!

I took some annual leave this week, giving me a 5 day break to do with what I wanted. It's poured with rain most of the time, so I've mostly stayed out of the garden and got in some decent sewing time.

Sassafras is all assembled, and appliqued. Just need to blanket stitch around all the shapes then it's ready for quilting.





I finally got around to quilting Jelly Girl (and got most of it done in one day). Just got the borders to go. I'm not too happy with the batting; it's much softer than the wool/poly blend which makes it hard to push around for free motion quilting. Lesson learnt!

Sassafras is looking sensational and so is Jelly Girl. I have been acquiring a stack of Patisserie fabrics - so pretty. I can't go passed Matilda's Own wool/poly batting - love it so much I bought a whole roll 2 years ago and now it's almost gone.
