The simplest of tops made whilst the rugby dominated downstairs! New Look 6109 with some leftover white linen from my Willow dress last year and The Fancy Silk Store in Birmingham which, yes will crease, but basically a free top!

Finished my first Grainline Hadley today using a 1.45m remnant of Liberty tana lawn.

Really nice pattern but needs topstitching which I did right at the end around neck, sleeves and hem facings.
All we need now are long, hot summer days ha ha!

One of the Sewing Girls finished her first self taught quilt today featuring triangles.

There’s a little back story - last summer she bought ‘Popular Patchwork’ magazine to take on holiday and a new feature was starting: ‘block of the month’. She decided to give it a go and to use only left over fabrics.
Nine months later, here is the quilt!
FYI the block patterns and instructions are on the internet on the Popular Patchwork magazine website.

Wow, a great example of how quilts were traditionally designed and made!
