Holiday Hand Turn Applique Project

We have had the blessing of a family holiday, booked before lock-down, thankfully fitting with the easing of the social distancing rules. A house share with our children and Son-in-Law in the stunning Peak District National Park.

The living room had a picture window looking out over farmland to hills and moors. Through the week we could sit on comfy sofas watching the effect changing weather and time of day had on the view….

We did occasionally get off the sofas to go walking 😉

I’m enjoying a change of pace. At the start of the week my cutting mat was littered with the pieces of fabric needed to make fourteen Bear Paw blocks. I’d picked the fabrics from a pile of 5″ squares and the contents of my colour-coded scrap bins. The inspiration was of course the Quilter’s Color Quest challenge but these were blocks I just fancied making rather than the results of working through a Color Challenge.

Saturday Quilting Bring and Share (101)

Welcome to Saturday Quilting Bring & Share. Has time been moving slowly for you or racing by? We are aiming to make the weekend feel different from the week days we’ve been spending together in our household of three. I’m especially glad to have the routine of publishing SQBS to remind me it really is Saturday. This is an opportunity to bring along your project(s), share in the varied and inspiring information being circulated around the Worldwide Quilting Community and just BE for a little while 🙂

I’m in need of a fanfare… I actually have a FINISHED project to bring along and share. I completed hand quilting the applique cushion front and made an envelope back (with buttons!). I am so happy with this little step into the world of needle turned applique. The fabric colours actually reflect the current season more closely than the Spring Color Quest Bear Paw block I shared in my previous blog post!
