The world at your feet

You may have missed me and I've been working very hard on a project, or rather more than one.
But first the news: (not about quilting)
our youngest son has made it through his final exams!
This means he can A start studying  B live on his own.
The world is at his feet! And now his life has really begun (not counting all the other events in his life).
He wants to study business economics, but this could change before school starts again in September.

What I did this past fortnight:

I took pictures of Blauwe Deuzzies/Blue Boxes, which I hadn't done yet. It's for a dear friend who loves blue and a little red. But then I ran out of blue and used more red than I had intended.
Pattern from Empty Bobbin. Fabrics used: Changing Seasons by Classic Cottons; wonderful fabric!
I machine quilted some circles in the squares.
I'm not very good at that yet; I'll just have to persevere!

This is a table runner I made for friends: she like neutral colours, I like loud colours.
She loved it! She said she'd use the floral side if she didn't have any flowers on the table.

Well now for my last project.
It's a gift, so I can't show anything yet.
What a clif hanger for next week!
I'm linking up to Sew Fresh Monday
Have a great week


  1. Congratulations to your son! I love your quilt, especially the circles!!

  2. the circles really make this quilt! I love that the circle is quilted into a square piece, but it really looks like you used a circle patch. Lots of impact with a easier method. Great idea!

  3. the runner i so pretty!!! i love the quilt. it is so fun and bright...playful

  4. Wow, wonderful quilt and runner!! Your circles look great! Congrats to you son.

  5. Beautiful quilt--and congrats to your son! Thanks for linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday!
