and another Gardenhurst....





Sunshine at last and beautiful blue skies the last couple of days; the trade off for that are daytime temperatures hovering around zero......
So, a brisk walk to the shops, and back into the warmth of my sewing room -
to finish another block for Gardenhurst quilt.


I enjoyed making the bird tail in this one.
I don't think I had finished blocks for any other quilt this quickly before, it must be something about this design - fairly simple, but so much scope for imagination.
Applique is definitely my favourite method, for now anyway. It is still a learning curve, I am learning all  the time. The next time I will sew so many circles, I will invest in Karen Buckley's Perfect Circles; the prep might take longer, but worth it in the end.

Little spring sunshine indoors....
