However the sewing machine has been out and if you follow me on instagram @craftyclaire74 then you can see what I've been up to. It's sewing and food most of all.
Anyway I've been working on a project since July 2015 which is now finally finished. It is the Drunk Love 2 Tone quilt from Denise Schmidt's book Quilts.
I bought the fabric from Hancocks of Paducah costing $102. I think the exchange rate at that time was pretty good.
Here is some of the journey:
Turquoise back. I stitched in the ditch to quilt it but I love how you see it on the reverse.
Nearly there, you get the idea.
Mitre corner - I still marvel at how this works.
Some of my quilts that I have made. From top: Castle Peeps by Lizzy House, My first ever quilt from Sew Hip Magazine, a quilt made from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern fabric scraps and the bottom one the Denise Schmidt Drunk Love 2 Tone.
More pictures are on my instagram feed, please hop over and take a look.
