It's been a funny few weeks, we are currently in week 8 of lockdown due to the Covid 19 virus; my husband and son have settled into working from home quite well. My life has changed very little as I walk the dog and clean and cook and garden as usual. I miss my weekly quilt group but we have managed to chat on Zoom.
I finally started sewing a couple of weeks ago having found it difficult to settle to anything. Thank goodness for having lots of WIPs that don't require any planning or decision making!
I put the last stitches on 'Coming Home' at the weekend. This was the 2019 BOM quilt from Sarah Fielke. I knew I wanted to make mine smaller than the original so I omitted the final border; it is a large lap size 72" square. My son helped me to baste it and I stitched in the ditch and round the appliqué with my machine. I have washed it and it has that crinkled look I love.
My inspiration was a vintage beach huts picture and I really enjoyed fussy cutting animals for the doors and windows. It makes me smile every time I look at it!
