I'll write more about the whys and wherefores when I'm feeling less depressed about the whole thing.
The past few weeks have also been marked by a significant lack of purchases! As I do most of my quilt shopping online, when I'm sick and can't use a computer that means no new fabric either. Boo!
In anticipation of my cathedral window class taught by Jo Avery at Simply Solids I bought a meter of Kona midnight.
Through a cross between origami and sewing, I managed to use about half of the metre and some left over batik scraps from my Craftsy BOM 2014 kit to make this.
Ain't she pretty?! It's eventually going to be a cushion (pillow if you're in the USA) cover.
Sadly I only managed to finish half the project in the class so it's gone on my pile of UFOs. I make no promises that it won't stay there for a while but maybe I can add it to the list of stuff to sew in August.
Meanwhile I have a commission quilt to finish, some presents to deliver and some ironing to be done so I'm off to be productive.
Happy Sunday sewing (and Happy Fathers Day for all those dads out there).
