Some Sewing

I was thinking that I hadn't put any sewing on my blog for awhile.  It's not that I haven't been doing any, but it's been a bit on the quiet side in my sewing room lately.  I have been managing some hand quilting with the odd TV show
The more I quilt this one, the softer it gets and the more I am loving it.
Some quilts just have to be "OFM"
Only For Me
You may remember it from all my scraps on the floor last year.

I did manage to finally finish my "boxes" quilt, and even hang it up, in pride of place in our lounge room - right above where I sit on the couch.
I love it too!

That box quilt is awesome, what a good idea to hang it where you will see it all the time. Amazing!

I am amazed you are hand quilting in this weather. Love the box quilt I am not a fan of quilts on the wall but it looks fantastic.

Hand stitching is so relaxing, a kind of meditating process, really.
I love both your quilts, patterns and colours, you have great taste.

I looooove the boxes quilt! I could stare and stare at all the geometric cleverness. I look forward to seeing the OFM scrap quilt as it progresses.

Am loving the first quilt, the colour combination is wonderful - vibrant but not 'loud'
