What do you do when you have a day off in the week? Fill your day being busy with a new sewing project! A few weeks ago I'd bought a festive-themed charm pack from The Woolpatch in Long Melford, and had the perfect project planned for it. The "Mini Charm Mix" pattern, which is a free download from The Fat Quarter Shop website, is a quick and easy design to make, the smallest size on the pattern is for a table runner. I was hosting a day with some very special "sewing" friends and this was the perfect project for us to make. My friends arrived armed with fabrics, threads, and their sewing machines. I teamed my charm pack with some linen, and I'm really pleased with the result. Here's a little peek at my progress - it just needs a good press, and I can layer it up ready for quilting. I'm planning a return trip to The Woolpatch at the weekend to get some fabric for the backing, and hopefully some more of this gorgeous fabric ready to make some place mats too.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
