Yay, I finished Penny Lane's quilt!  I love it :)  It was a fun quilt to do and the  'organic' line quilting went well.  I picked up the pillow forms the other day, paid too much for them at Michael's but they fit like a glove so I won't moan too much :)  5 pictures are a bit much, but lighting wasn't working for me :)
I followed a pattern for Spring Song in May 2014's Popular Patchwork magazine for the quilt, and Circles Squared in Issue Eight of Love Patchwork & Quilting for the cushion covers.

It's been awhile since I've blogged... not much sewing has been happening and the 10 days since arriving back in Canada has been hectic.  I managed to pick up a little sewing machine, which I'm not liking but it will do for now.  I really should have been more patient :)

Yesterday I finished the Bearcats quilt.  Just straight  lines, well sort of straight lines.  I'm still no where near confident enough to FMQ a quilt, even a small one.  Maybe one day, but that's doubtful ;)  I got the top, back (bottom?) and binding done in England so all that was left was the sandwiching and quilting and putting the binding on.  It turned out good, a little small but should work for keeping Lee-Ellen warm while sitting at the ball field.  Next year, because Bearcat season is over for 2014.

Max checking it out :)
