Autumn Hollyburn

As soon as I saw this autumn fabric made up into culottes in the window of my local fabric shop, More Sewing, I knew I was going to have to make another Hollyburn skirt!  I decided on a midi length, so lengthened the the skirt by 4 inches.  It went together really easily again, straight out of the envelope.  I love it, it’s so swishy!  (Sorry about the photos, the light is so bad at the moment and as you can see I was using my phone)

Baby quilt no. 6!

DSC_7923I’ve made quilts for our nephew’s and niece’s babies for their first Christmas.  I’ve just finished no 6!  This one is for my niece’s little boy.  I chose 2 brightly coloured  charm packs from www.craftsandquilts.net at Sandown Quilt Show back in June.  I decided to join them in groups of 4, and spent some time arranging them and rearranging them on the floor before sewing.  I bought the red for sashing and the monkey print for the back from More Sewing, my local fabric store.  I found the lovely stripe fabric for the binding at More Sewing too.  I’m really pleased with the final quilt, it looks very colourful which was the look I was after.
