Vintage Seaside!

Welcome to the start of my new quilt - pattern and inspiration by Cluck Cluck Sew and fabrics Seaside by Riley Blake!

I fell in love with this whole kit and kaboodle and can imagine cuddling up under it on these cold wintery nights. My highlighting etc. is being naughty, maybe I should make myself use the new interface. Do pop over and visit Cluck Cluck's blog - a very big favourite of mine!

I am such a creature of habit, but I do feel my blog needs a makeover, so if anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be very happy to outlay the expense.

Also, I'm trying something else new - on the few blocks above, after some research, I have pressed the seams open - must say, a very nice finish and it could be very advantageous to quilting. I think it could be time consuming, too - so if anyone has an opinion, I would love to hear it.

Nine days of a throat feeling like I have swallowed razor blades and a very unhappy body must keep up the spirit and win the battle, lol! Happy quilting Girls and Guys!

Praying a wee prayer of healing and rest for you, sweetie. {{{hugs}}}
I like the idea of pressing the seams open...I do it when there's too much bulk in a seam, but I think I'll do it more.
