First I finished this mini quilt which I started at the Stitch Gathering as part of a course on Crazy Patchwork.
Then I did something quite new to me which is bag-making. Just before the summer holidays Ali of Very Berry Fabrics very kindly sent me one of her Liberty maxi scrap bags so I could have a play with it. So, first I made a Liberty and linen komebukuro bag. I'll post details of how I made it because it was quite satisfying!
Satisfying enough to try a second komebukuro bag.
Then since I was on a bit of a roll (for me) I supplemented some of the remaining pieces with a few more bits from a scrap pack I had already, and made these - two Liberty pouches. The squares are about an inch across.
Finally I used some of the remaining scraps to make a panel for a music bag. This is a detail.
On the offchance you are not already familiar with Ali's shop you should check it out as it is full of beautiful and irresistable fabric - she also has a lovely blog, and is a really nice person to deal with.
My one non-Liberty make used Oakshott cottons, and is this entry for the Holiday Memories Mini Quilt competition at Celtic Thistle Stitches. (Not too late to enter!) It is inspired by collecting pebbles with my nephew on holiday with family, and so represents three of my favourite things.
Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day.
