Back on track.

I keep thinking of the song from old Western movies- I'm back in the saddle again.  After taking a bit of a break from sewing, I'm back into it.  Swimming lessons this week contributed these shapes to be stitched  for more Joseph's Coat blocks.
A couple more blocks to join the others.

And a piece of the scrummiest (a great word from my mum) fabric in the world.  Of course it's a Kaffe- rich colours and great textures.
I found it in my Joseph's Coat box, so now it's been cut up.  The colours in the flesh are much more intense, and the flower centres are lime green, but you get the idea.
I seem to have a problem now though!  I recently saw a picture of an old quilt C1800, that I've decided I love
and need to make.  I've started to draft the pattern at a reduced size, original is 3 m X 3.75 m!!  I love making large quilts, but that's too big even for me.  However, I seem to be at a loss for the time needed to get going on this.  Surely  someone  a quilter has invented a 28 hour day. LOL.


  1. I'm happy for you to be back at your JC blocks. I've yet to dig back into my mine what with grandchildren visiting for several weeks. Love having them here (this is a first for me) and I'll miss them dreadfully when they're gone, but boy, will I hit my quilt-y stuff again! Thanks for the re-inspiration for those pretty blocks.

  2. Good to see Joseph's Coat back on agenda.
    A 28 hour day! Now that is a plan...
    Isn't it wonderful what we can find lurking in the project boxes..great word and yep, just right for the fabric. Have fun playing with it.
