November sewing!

I find it so hard to function in this horribly cold weather! So this month has been a bit of a ‘finishing off’ month as I have mainly stayed indoors!!

I finished the quilting and binding on my Christmas epp quilt (which I blogged about last month). This cold, cold weather has meant that the Christmas quilt has already had a LOT of use already! 

I also managed to do the final 3 blocks for Mum’s quilt (which I blogged about in August) which gives me just under a month to quilt it and bind it! 

This block was made using the 2 fat quarters I bought after our trip to Festival of Quilts in August: 

This block was made using the 2 fat quarters I bought after Mum and I went to the West Country Quilt and Textile Show at the start of November: 

The show was utterly fantastic and it was great that it all took place so locally!! I bought lots of gorgeous new fabrics and threads (the threads in particular I cannot wait to start using for a Kantha piece which I will blog about in the new year)!

The final block for Mum’s quilt was made using 2 fat quarters that I bought from Social Fabric when Mum and I went to Totnes:


Then, finally, I have also managed by November block for my 2016 blog quilt where I have sought to learn a new patchwork block each month! 11 done…1 more to go and then I can piece them all together! 

I hope you are all well and staying warm in this horribly cold weather. I am off back to hibernation with a cuppa and a hot water bottle! Speak to you soon.
