Fabric Friday: Latest Update

Hello Family, Friends and fellow Bloggers and blog Readers!

I have missed blogging with you so very much!! These last two weeks, I have been busy doing a lot of a writing, a bit of blog admin, a lot of house and garden work, and a lot of fabric fun . But I thought it was time for a proper update.

So, come inside….

First up, a little Fabric shopping!!!

Of course at my favorite quilt shop: The Quilt Place in Nürrensdorf, Switzerland.

Lots of lovely, fabric of course!!! A lot of Fig Tree and a lot of fun and vibrant summer colors. I love Fig Tree and I love Joanna Figueroa’s beautiful quilt and fabric designs!!

These two were freebies for buying too much fabric! I think I am even more in love with them than what I bought but they are like night and day, so let’s not compare!

The Above rose pattern is Garden Party by Blackbird Designs for Modathe other unfortunately didn’t have a selvage on it.

So back to the Home Sweet Dreaming studio…

I made a little, last-minute hostess gift, for an intimate friends and family garden party we were invited to on the 1st of August, the Swiss National Holiday.  I had to rush it but I loved making it and especially doing everything by hand, sewing and quilting, except sewing the binding on with the machine to the front.

After having a little too much fabric fun it was time to get back to my current work in progress. My cheery half-square triangle quilt. DSC_0943

I love the puckering created by hand quilting!

I’ve also been up to a lot of Embroidery, you can see more on that in a post I did here.

And planning quilts.

Finally, with so much going on, my sewing room has been in constant disarray, so I am constantly having to tidy and reorganize things. I found a new home for my fabric though this week, which especially made me happy.

So that is all I have for you today!

I hope you enjoyed your journey into my little Home Sweet Dreaming world and until next time, keep stitching!
