It was a nice sunny but windy day on Wednesday. Perfect for washing fabrics.
There is always a lot of debate about wether to wash or not to wash but just look at the water.
and it took 6 washes before I was happy to hang the reds on the line with the others…
I love this sort of washing blowing in the breeze.
After it was dry and ironed I was able to cut it up for my Secret Sewing……
My “Spring Mini Swap” has arrived at my partners so I am able to show you what I sent to Clare.. Thanks to our "Swap Mum Cheryll" for another fun swap.
In July at our "PATCH" retreat we were give a FQ of ugly batik fabric and our challenge was to make a miniature/doll quilt using all or some of it..
I used the fabric in some of the points,border and backing.
The corner stones are 2 1/4” . I put the bobbin in the centre of the star to show how tiny the flying geese are…
We have till next October to finish the challenge for our hanging but I am pleased my is done. Only hope I don’t put it in a safe place and loose it..LOL
Have a great weekend and I hope you get to stitch.
