Lazy Summer Sunday

There's something rather decadent about a lazy summer Sunday.  A lay in, a slow start to the day, pottering along ... I did make 3 pints of passatta...

yesterday I got my August Brit Bee blocks finished for Sarah (Miss August) of Narcoleptic in the Cupboard


Sarah has said she will be sashing the blocks with black, so I wanted this cross block to float



and she's partial to curves too  :)

I really enjoyed making these blocks, I started them before I went off to Festival, time to play a little catch up now  :) 

Today I pottered with a little quilting of my Hexi Park quilt, which again, was loaded up before I left for Festival 


I'm really pleased with how it is going


particularly this curvy curly  pattern 

I've got plenty to keep me busy over the next couple of weeks

Happy Quilting!

I love the blocks for Sarah - the crosses are going to look great with black sashing, what a good idea! Your quilting is very impressive!
