Anyone know how that happened?! August has been a busy month for me. Summer holiday, time with friends, time with my gorgeous nephews and all sorts of other things. A very fun month all in all. In terms of sewing, here are the three things I can show you!
From left to right, my Texting While Sewing entry, a little purse and a mysterious frog (whose project I can't mention here yet). But the exciting news from this month is that my wrapping paper quilt, or, as I later discovered it should be called, my Orla Kiely quilt is now done! For those who are new here, a mum-to-be who didn't know the gender of her baby gave me this piece of wrapping paper as inspiration for a quilt:
After being given the above, I started to notice the pattern everywhere I went. Mainly on bags, but notebooks and fabric too. I wondered whether I was going mad - surely there weren't so many items out there that matched this random piece of wrapping paper?! Eventually though the header at Red Pepper Quilts I found out that this is a very famous and much loved Orla Kiely design.
Anyway, apart from a label the quilt is complete. Just as I started sewing on the binding (the second time this has happened!) the baby was born early, and the lovely couple now have a gorgeous little boy. Once the label is added and the quilt is given I'll be adding a few posts here about it. I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
I hope you've all enjoyed August too. Linking up to the Fresh Sewing Day and the Small Blog Meet - hi if you're popping over from there :) What was the highlight of your August?
