I must apologise for not keeping up with the blog world, but life gets hectic sometimes (as you well know) but I'm still enjoying my quilting and sewing.

Here's the latest block that I've finished for my Homespun Foxley Village project.

Just loving the Tilda fabric, I would never have selected some of the colour combinations but there you go,.... they work !!!  Just goes to show that just because you wouldn't choose it, doesnt mean it wouldn't work  Sometimes its nice to just do and you are told and you get a very pleasant surprise.

How nice are some people, especially quilters...Helen from Helens Patchwork Passion  invited me to join her, Sue and Julia (no blogs) to get together to work on this beautiful quilt by Yoko Saito.

I only met Helen thru blogging and she's been so generous both in her knowledge and in sharing her supplies....big thanks to you Helen 💐💐💐💐

I've almost finished Block 1 - all needle turn (although I did use some appliqué paper on the small pieces) 

We are using Japanese woven material which I'm finding does fray quite a bit so the idea is not to fiddle with it too much, easy said than done with needle turn!
The embroidery accentuates the features and finishes off each piece nicely.

This type of quilting is more rustic than normal but the finished quilt is quite stunning and all hand worked which is so relaxing.

We are all meeting up this Thursday to start the next block so I'd better finish my embroidery ready to go again.....I'll keep posting each block to show you the process.
