The long summer of slow blogging and sporadic sewing has changed gear with the start of September! It's back to earth, with the return to school, much cooler weather, and a fabulous new job, which I'm really excited about! It's a total change for me, as I'm now working for a local charity, but loving the role and looking forward to all that lies ahead.
We've been preparing for autumn, with this bright and vibrant Kaffe Fasset quilt.
I used two charm packs, and didn't feel the need to do anything fancy with them!
While I was anxious about quilting it, I needn't have been. If anything, these very light and silky fabrics passed through the machine more smoothly than regular quilting cotton.
After some deliberation, I went for smaller loops and longer swirls in between, which seems to have worked out well :-)
It's a very cheerful piece, and a nice extra layer when watching the television on colder evenings!
All ready for the girl when she gets home from school...
