So it's raining again? Go sew!

We've been so busy at The Workroom these last couple of weeks.  Our Modern Applique class has just begun and some fabulous first blocks are starting to emerge. A bit of spring sunshine at the end of last week was perfect to inspire us starting this quilt pattern. I love making this quilt so much that I've made three versions now.

I'm resisting the temptation to make another one in these fab colours. This block is destined to be a cushion instead.

We've been getting new fabric in all week. Lots of great hard working basics. This bundle is calling to me. Raspberry Flurry, grass green Gingham and Flurry and soft grey Tilda - it's a perfect Modern Applique palette.

We've stocked upon reds - they've been flying out. A lovely crimson coloured Flurry dot, some vintage cherries and a restock of our favourite Home School range red gingham.

We've also stocked up on blues, classic polkas a Home School gingham and a new soft blue flurry. It's been raining hard outside all day today but The Workroom was busy and buzzing  - pop in and see us, we're open on Saturday 10am - 3pm or at the John Hampden School Spring Fayre 12-2pm.

 I just finished sewing the binding of my Bee in My Bonnet Quilt while the sun still shone earlier this week. It'll be at The Wendover John Hampden School Fayre trying to bring a bit of sunshine back! Pop by and say hi.
