Round and Round in Circles!

I've had a lovely weekend!

Yesterday, I had breakfast out with a friend, then lunch and fabric shopping with another friend!

In the evening I snuggled up with a glass of port and Mr Darcy!

Today has been gloriously sunny!  Oh how I love to sew with the sun streaming in through my window!

I've been quilting my 2012 Brit Bee quilt. 

After much deliberation, and being powered up with a granny nap, followed by one of these ....

...I decided to adopt a posture of patience and quilt concentric circles, starting slap bang in the middle!

Quilting is usually my least favourite part of quilt making, mainly because the throat size on my beloved Pfaff is only 6.5" from the edge of the presser foot.

But, for a pleasant change, I actually enjoyed quilting this one!  I think it was a combination of the sunshine, some lush variegated thread, and thinking of each member of Brit Bee and memories they hold for me as I quilted over each of their blocks.

It took 3 full bobbins to quilt this baby!

Tonight I plan to sew on the binding and will hopefully have some finished pics for you tomorrow!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
