My work life is still a bit hectic, with more appointments as usual, so patchwork is on a hold. But I finally got to start the Skill Builder BOM blocks. I have pieced the first 6 blocks, haven’t decided yet on the quilting design. I suppose there is no hurry. Got the backing fabric – a wonderful flowery design in a rich orange, wadding is waiting on the shelf. Wednesday is a public holiday, so I shall have time for quilting.
Fire and Ice quilt top has sat in the cupboard for a few months. Since it has rained for a few days (very unusual for this time of year), I got it out and made a quilt sandwich. Once more this top has a floral backing fabric – with tulips.
Lots to quilt – my days will be “quilty” busy, looking forward to that.
Thanks for visiting, have a nice week, Barbora
After a “lazy” winter, the work in my professional life has picked up. I have had a few busy weeks and there is no change in sight. So for the moment I had to reduce patchwork and quilting just to classes. I enjoy the classes very much, my lady pupils are wonderful and we have a good time together. We are working on a QAYG quilt, most of the blocks are now ready for quilting. Last week I have helped Mary to finish her quilt and decided to go for FMQ with meanders :
Here a detail of the QAYG seams that join the individually quilted blocks :
And finally a photo of the finished quilt :
Maybe over the weekend I can work on the blocks of the Skill Builder BOM by Pile Of Fabric.
Happy sewing everyone, thanks for stopping, Barbora
This time more a photo post without many words.

That’s all for this time, Barbora
