Modern quilts and modern blogging

I have been blogging for 10 years now and recently I have gone to less frequent posts, it seems there is less to say and so much more to do! But I miss it, I love taking the photos of quilts and I hope to make more time to carry on blogging, even with Instagram, Pinterest, the website and many other things to do. I don't think I have time to Twitter though! I have been making quilts though so here are some photos:

Modern Quilt by Green Star Quilts
I was inspired by Tula Pink's book and used a million tiny scraps to make the blocks:


Here is the whole quilt which measures 43 x 49 inches, 109 x 124 cm

This is the inspiring page although I didn't use her blocks, but made up my own:

100 Modern Quilt Blocks by Tula Pink
The colours are like the primulas and primroses which self seed all over the shadier parts of the garden. This is the backing fabric....

I have also finished a sweet baby first size bed quilt for a little boy called Teddy which uses some of his outgrown clothes including his first football shirt.....

The children in the middle are Teddy with his big brother and sister. Now I am really hoping to have time to tidy the sewing room which looks such a mess!

Happy quilting in June to my visitors, 
Kind regards,
Sue
