I just wanted to share a pic of my completed mini quilt for the Instagram Rainbow Mini Swap. I so enjoyed making this – I hope you can tell!
It just scraped in under the 24″ maximum rule, which was a relief. I have learned that I have a tendency to be rather skimpy with my 1/4″ seams, so things tend to grow a bit!
Love Sewing arrived at my place this morning, and so I got to see the fabulous job that the Ed, Helen, has made of styling my pattern for a gadget clutch:
It was also a great relief to see that an iPad actually fitted.. I don’t have one, so I was working from my DIY cardboard version. Not quite the same… It’s a really fabulous issue (not just because I am in it!), well worth getting hold of a copy!
I’ve also been busy whipping up a Kindle Paperwhite-sized version of the clutch using Liberty lawn and some Essex yarn-dyed linen, for my lovely FB friend Lisa:
For some insane reason I decided to put some piping round the edge of the flap section. Got it to work after MUCH swearing. Must practice because I love the way it looks. Some piped cushions are on my To Do list, but that’s rather extensive…
We have had gorgeous weather here today, which made me feel very spring-y. Here’s my pup enjoying a sunny ‘walk’ this morning. He is such a lovely source of fun and happiness in our days!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend too!
