Fresh Sewing Day #3

Hello! I'm back!

Seen as it's the 1st of the month I'm linking up with Lynne of Lily's Quilts and her monthly feature 'Fresh Sewing'. Basically it's a chance to show off what you've been sewing up and also lets you see what everyone else has been doing too! I love a good blog hop don't you?

Fresh Sewing Day

So without further ado here's what's been keeping me busy the last few days.

I've made some adjustments to this cute top I made 'Little Miss H' a while ago. I've taken the length off the sleeves and added elastic to what remains as well as adding a pocket. I'm much happier with the top now and so is the little lady!

I've resewn and trimmed my Modified Bento Blocks, I just need to make 6 more blocks and sew them all up!

I've got until the weekend to do this as I'm entering the finished quilt top into the naked bed challenge, organised by fabric designer and quilter extrodinaire Sarah Fielke. Wish me luck!!!

Finally I've pieced this baby boy strip quilt for my friend:

Now it's all pieced I've realised I need to add some strips about another 15" to make a 42" square baby quilt.

So what have you been sewing???


  1. Your bento box blocks look lovely. Look forward to seeing them all pieced together.

  2. I found you via Lynne's fresh sewing day. Those bento blocks are lovely! and I love that little pocket on the wee top - cute!

  3. You've been busy girl! I sewed a Buttercup bag wich turned out rather cute.

  4. Those modified bento blocks are yummy. It looks very promising!

  5. Just small things for me lately. Fun! Your bento box blocks are going to be a stunning quilt.

  6. Absolutely love your Bento blocks.
