Not much to report from these parts at the moment. Creativity is crawling along thanks to an irritated nerve in my neck that is giving me the equivalent of sciatica in my arm and shoulder which is just peachy when you need to move said arm to use the sewing machine! I’ve had to do some quick thinking to rejig my plans for the Quilt Now BOM to reduce some of the reliance on the sewing machine for the final few blocks.
As Issue 9 has just hit the shelves of shops in the UK I can show you what we’ve done so far and I have to admit to being delighted with it.
All of the fabrics are from various collections for Art Gallery Fabrics and they all play beautifully together. If you’re on Instagram you can search #quiltnowbom to see pictures of other BOM quilts in progress.
This month’s BOM technique is Folded patchwork Prairie Points. A super quick technique that demanded a fun BOM project – a travel memory game. I dug out some of my Laurie Wisbrun and Heather Ross hoard for a bit of fussy cutting fun.
The free pattern
will be is available on the Quilt Now website soon now. I’m off to finish watching the Great British Sewing Bee now. Catch you soon x
