After a somewhat unexpected break, I’m back blogging and sharing what’s going on behind the scenes at Love Stitching!
Well, I don’t know about you, but I absolutely LOVE these stunning fabrics which have just arrived in from Moda!
In fact, I went home last night, sat in front of the fire after tea (dishes can wait, can’t they!) and got started…!
With the ‘table topper’ FREE pattern from Moda in mind (details below), I set about my evenings ‘work’!
Although the pattern told me to cut each charm Pack square twice diagonally to make a total of 336 quarter square triangles, I thought I would do things a little bit differently!
Instead, I opened up both of the Charm Packs (above) and carefully pinned each William Morris patterned piece right sides together with a piece of the very lovely ‘Grunge’ fabrics (below).
This evening I very much plan to get the sewing machine threaded up and get moving on to the next stage…
The plan is to sew a quarter inch seam around ALL FOUR edges and then I will cut my now-stitched-together-squares twice diagonally…..
Will keep you posted with my progress!
