Going Around the Bend

The kids are still enjoying their Easter holidays and the sun has been shining so there has been lots of long days in the garden which is just heaven after the winter of snow and cold we have had. We have Nana here for the week too so the vegetable patch is getting licked into shape ready for summer.

So there hasn't been all that much new progress in MyFrontRoom sewing room. I am still going round in circles hand quilting HubbaBubba. It's looking fab, but its a surprisingly huge amount of quilting! I have measured out that each circle requires 1.5m of quilting to make up each spiral ( nerdy alert!) and I have 42 circles to quilt so 63 metres of continuous hand quilting round and round in circles, no wonder I'm going slightly around the bend!

I do have the indulgence of looking over at my new love, Little Folks fat quarter pile. At the moment I have about a hundred different ideas of what to do with them, but I suspect that the best thing would just be a straightforward patch quilt? They are just too pretty to cut into to have a play and see!


  1. I love this fabric. I too have been in the garden, yes this weather is wonderful! Your Hubba Bubba quilt it looking amazing!

  2. Thanks Lindsey! I'm hoping HubbaBubba is worth the 63metres of quilting, but sitting in the garden in the sun whilst doing it is not a chore!
