I have had a less than fabulous start to the year as The Bug has struck and I've spent much of the last 10 days either in bed or sitting by a log fire and quilting. The Bug does have its positive points, I just wish I could get to do both those things without the accompanying sore throat, screaming headache and shivers... ah well, we never get EVERYTHING we want, do we?
Anyway, my time hasn't been wasted as I have got a sizeable amount of piecing done and I've finished the top for one commission quilt which has been hanging around for far too long, and also the one for my 'In the Night Garden' design. Better pictures will follow, but here's half the pieced top for the latter; I think it's looking good!
I've also taken the opportunity to do some more designs... I will blog tomorrow about the 'Night Dive' one because there's a bit of a story behind that, but for now here's my 'Easy Beach' effort which was inspired by a Design Seeds' palette I fell in love with (right). It's for beginner quilters or the more experienced who would like a quick project. As usual I'll be patterning it as soon as I can!
