After making the scrappy trip-a-long at the beginning of the year I made a promise to myself to sew more things just for fun, things for me, things for the family.
These last few weeks I have been cutting and stitching away here and there - mostly there in the late, late night, when the house is quiet and I have a moment to make a strong cup of tea, breathe, then sit and sew.
The pattern I decided on was a must for me, it's called Folk Tale Paths and designed by Emma from Ballarat Patchwork. She designed this quilt to showcase Folk Tale at AQM last year, at the time I was about 11months pregnant.
.......you know, I was huge & about to pop.
So I began cutting and piecing.
As I cut and pieced I watched seasons 2 and 3 of Downton Abbey, I cried in a few places and I pricked my fingers more times than I wish to say.
It was good, real good.
The fabric choice was an obvious one if you look at the shelves in my creative space.
As the blocks grew and I began to love the design even more, if that is possible.
I HAD to finish, I stayed up later, I became addicted.
When I layed it out on the floor in the studio I Instagrammed a picture - you know, that moment when the last block is sewn really is pure bliss.
It was worth every moment, every pricked finger.
I'm almost done
and then I realise I have not taken one photo of Folk Tale Paths during daylight hours. So this might be known as my midnight quilt.....or the Midnight Folk Tale Downton Abbey Quilt
