String Quilt

Here it is!  My first quilt.  It 's a string quilt with a small border on the back.   It's been really fun to make and very easy... not a fiddley.  I'm not as happy with the back because the lines are wonky.  I used a quilting bar and I think it moves around and the machine vibrates.  I'm not sure what I'll do with it.  It's big enough to be a pram quilt or a playmat. I chose something small to have a go with.

New Summer Skirt

I've been saving this Heather Ross Mechino fabric for a couple of years.  I love this fabric and could only get a couple of yards of it before it went out of print.  I decided on a new summer skirt.  It's a simple A-line shape which is lined with a back zip.  You can't quite see the shape in this picture because the hanger is a bit wonky.
