Orbital quilt-along and many other quilts

London is positively arctic right now and all I want to do is stay in and sew (or knit). Good thing then that I have so many quilting commissions going on at the moment!

This one however is not a commission, I took part in the Orbit Quilt Along with LR stitched and I have decided to give the finished quilt to my lovely friend Salima for her birthday. It is almost done!

I am also making two quilts for Nikki, identical ones for her daughters Charlotte and Josephine. One is mostly done, the other one is right behind. I am loving the rainbow colours!

Lastly I am about to begin on Simon's Indigo quilt. A beautiful quilt made up of indigo fabrics, including a length of vintage Thai hand dyed linen. Lush. To be backed with a funky mustard print. Probably to be hand quilted.

Orbit Quilt-Along

Crazy busy as I am already are, making four quilts I have been commissioned to make AND writing an essay for my Psychology degree, I also decide to take part in the quilt along that Lindsay from LR Stitched set up. It was just too cute to miss out on!

The cutting out seemed to take just about forever, not helped by me trying to cut corners (or rather not!) by not using a rotary cutter and mat and not even measuring terribly well, and it has turned out not even cutting enough of everything therefore having to cut more as I go along...

But piecing it is so much fun and so addictive, it is my quilting crack! I just want to ignore my work and ignore my essay and race on with it! Bad girl...

Anyway it is not too late for you to join in so by all means follow this link and join me for some highly addictive and colourful quilting fun!

There is also a Flickr group (here) where people are posting their pictures. Cannot wait to get back to it! Join me?
