Having tidied away all my wool for a while, the shelves on the other side of my room have had a big sort out. This rather ugly unit was in our living room at our last house, but it does a good job of storing all my bits and pieces now. Just wish I'd taken the time to paint it white.
The fabric had a tidy, with lots of the bigger bits moving to another shelf unit and I found some new boxes to house all the little scraps and strips etc.
This little quilt top was pieced together a few years ago and I finished it off a couple of days ago. It's from the book "Little Quilts all Through the House" and I've seen loads of variations on the internet. All of them a lot neater than mine, I'm sure!
I've challenged myself to use up a lot of the strips I cut ages ago, so out came some of my books for inspiration. Little quilts really appeal to me as they're quick and easy to make and look lovely displayed on the wall.
Kathleen Tracy has written four wonderful books on the subject and has a lovely Blog. Also check out Hen House and the beautiful quilts she has made if you need any more inspiration!
I've made a start with some log cabin blocks. Hopefully it should look something like this when it's done
Now I need to go and put some more logs on the fire!
