yesterday evening, walking back along the path, one of my favourite spots for shooting photographs
scraps gathered as a first step towards a small journey, I'm thinking along the lines of a so-called small Allotment combining bright silks from Jude, eco-prints made during Marijke's workshop back in 2018 and delicate linens from Catharina
always the need to find order in the chaos
How well suited to the Allotment Cloth.
This too was recorded yesterday late afternoon, as it had been a grey-stay-indoors-day, at last, I managed to get loads done on the laptop and sewing machine. Most of the stitching is done by hand, but the horizontal bands are sewn together on the Singer.
I'm still determining how much of the quilting I will do by hand and what the Singer will handle.
There will be just two layers, as I want it to retain the light feel it has thanks to the linens and it can be used as a table cloth or Summer evening wrap. The backing will be white/cream made with what I have in my diminishing stash.
I love how it reminds me of the land.

your quilt it a joy to look at ... even as it makes me wonder what is keeping me from starting on one of my own ... the mix of tiny pieced bits and simple open patches is delightful to see ... and I am taking mental note of your choice of linen pieced top and backing only
The cloth looks beautiful in the great outdoors. Best of luck on your sales. I've been unable to wear earnings for years...otherwise, I may be tempted! Love visiting your world...another bookshelf to look through!
Thanks for your blogging!
also, am having to rethink the Allotment quilt as I realised if I want the last bird piece to be seen it'll have to be in a different band, or else it will disappear from the table, as it were.....stay safe and well xx
