The reason why...

... I was absent from my blog since a month :

Grandsons

Lounge

Lounge

My son from Chicago and my son, his wife and their two babies from London came to spend August in Greece. I was so happy to have them here with me! I met my third grandson for the first time! My daughter and her baby were as well here, and as you can understand I had the best excuse not to have any time left for quilting or blogging! Proof are those pictures of my lounge... I would be ashamed to show you in what situation is the rest of my home : a mess everywhere. Needless to talk about my kitchen!!!

I will be back soon (after home will be again in its usual state), with new quilting projects, new ideas and new fabrics from Chicago.

Liberty Pillow

My hexagon pillow started last year here is at last finished!
It measures 50 cm x 50 cm (19.5" x 19.5").
There are 52 hexagons assembled by hand. English paper piecing method. Tutorial here.
I only used scraps from Liberty fabrics.
I will post soon a tutorial for sewing a pillow case.

The day I found this picture on Pinterest I instantly decided I have to make this cute little bunny!
Same day I did a pattern (approximate) and started to search among my Liberty scraps.
Next day it was done and sent to my niece for her baby boy to be born next November.

The patchwork body measures 22 cm x 22 cm (about 8.50" x 8.50").

I enjoyed so much sewing this cute cuddly toy that I will make a second one right now : we are expecting several babies soon... Opportunity for creating adorable things!
