Yesterday's Sewing...

Yesterday was the perfect day for sewing.. .
The day started off lovely and sunny but soon turned into a very wet afternoon, just perfect weather to stay in and sew...

I achieved so much yesterday... I sewed to my hearts content and all these spider triangles were pieced, just need to join them up and add them to the other webs now. I can't get over how lovely bright and colourful they look...and I've hardly made a dent in the scrap pile.

I'm amazed just how far these little itty bitty scraps go. The only cutting of yardage I've done is the blue repro fabric that outlines the webs to keep them all uniform and connected together.....I also.... ran up these two potholders from a couple of blocks left over from my Civil War quilt that I made last year...I really needed new potholders, so that worked out well.....♥

This lovely Table Topper below belongs to Kerry from my Tuesday Patchwork group..isn't it just gorgeous. ....

Kerry is hand-quilting it, and just have a look at the backing below....

How cool is this...Kerry pieced together some old flour bags...The West Aussie girls would recognize the Dingo Flour logo..a famous landmark in our port city of Fremantle ...
Happy sewing..until next time...♥

  1. I love the progress you made on your spiderweb piece! What fun that your friend pieced those flour sacks together for her backing. Pretty clever gal, I'd say!

  9. Your pretty Spider Web quilt is a reminder that the design is at the top of my must-make list. Love making stringy quilts. I think scrappy strips proliferate in my fabric bin! I'm sure I have enough for a half dozen quilts! Thanks for the inspiration. Keep up the good work.

  14. Your time has not been wasted. The spider web is looking wonderful. Are those brights still tucked away waiting for a project to find them?
    Those potholders look to good to use.

  16. Great sewing day that you had and lots of progress! Your spiderweb blocks are very cool and I'm excited to see them all together. Love the potholders, reminds me that I need to make some.

    The table topper is precious and I LOVE the vintage flour sacks on back and I only wish I could quilt like that!

  18. Wow, you did get a lot done. I love that block and your colors are perfect.
    I also love the flour sack back. It is so fun that now a quilt can be just as pretty on both sides!

  25. Love the spiderweb blocks. Do you trace the registration lines onto the muslin? I've been doing a paper piecing class with Chris Jurd and loving it. I have just begun a new blog for my quilting adventures so I'll post some photos of the pickle dish blocks (Chris's design) that I'm working on. Love your blog oh and your son's too. My 23 yr old son is a few months away from becoming a qualified chef. Good to have one in the family! Cheers, Rowena

  26. Lovely work by one and all! I have made several scrappy strip quilts but not with the spider web pattern. My friends and I keep a big bin of scrap strips and we swear they reproduce themselves while in the bin LOL.
