A few weeks ago I commented on a the start of Chookyblue's A garden's journal by Hatch and Patch. I loved how she was hers in a blue colour scheme and commented that I had made the same quilt a few years ago. Chookyblue asked to see my quilt, so here it is. I enjoyed making this quilt and putting the fabrics together for it.

This is my favourite block in the whole quilt , my next door neighbour at the time use to say it was a good likeness to her when she was in the garden.
Here is a little sweet treat bag I got to finish today, its from a Moda Honey bun pack that I had in the cupboard. Sorry the photo is a bit dark it looks like a storm is coming to visit outside.

Hope you all have had a great weekend and happy sewing
