Secret Sewing


This pile of prettiness is destined to be a quilt for my Mum.  She has a special birthday coming up this year, so my sister and I had the brilliant idea of making her a quilt - one side each.   We will see how brilliant this idea is as we finish our quilt tops - she may end up with two quilts yet.

Mum picked the large floral (Philip Jacobs Tree Peony)  on the bottom as her main fabric, so from my stash I have pulled a few co-ordinating fabrics. A pattern has been chosen, and six blocks have been completed, however as the rest of the quilt is to be a surprise, this is all I can reveal of it until the big day.  So rest assured, even if there are not a lot of sewing pictures on the blog, there is plenty of secret sewing happening.
