I've finished my Cotton and Steel swap quilt
I struggled with what fabric to bind it but decided on a white on white pin stripe that I found in my stash
I named it 'All the pretties fly South for the Winter' as to me it looked like the colourful birds flying away and just leaving the drab birds. Or do I just need more coffee.
Anyway I always send some extras in my swap parcel so withe some of the left over fabric I made a set of fabric baskets.
The tutorial is at Seaside Stitches blog HERE
As they were really quick to make up I made some more for another monthly swap
I quilted these which made them firmer. The square sizes I started with are 12", 9" and finally the smallest is 6". Each set took about an hour from start to finish.
Tomorrow is going to be spent on the garden as I had a delivery of some hedging plants that need to go in the ground. Also I've bought a new statue for the garden and need to find a place for it
