This weekend I have been on night shift and therefore it was written off before it had even begin. I even missed out on the sunshine, (well if you don't count the two seconds of squinting between the car and the front door at 8am this morning).
Knowing that sewing was off the agenda for the weekend, I spent Friday day sewing up a storm instead of sleeping.
I packed the kidlet off to nursery, rigged this giant spool up....

and finally got on with quilting my Siblings Together quilt. I decided to stick to outlining the tumblers, something which I would normally avoid (so I don't highlight my wonky seams!), but I think it highlights the pattern and lets the gorgeous fabrics shine!
Just need to make the binding and this is good to go!
While I was on a roll, I got cracking on a baby quilt for a good friend who has just had a gorgeous baby boy! I used the Storyboek cheater print and matching dotty print and made a simple strip quilt. I think it took about 2 hours from start.....

Hope everyone else got to enjoy the sunshine this weekend.
