Rocket Age Quilt

5 weeks ago my nephew and his girl friend had a beautiful baby boy, his name is Zeke and he is adorable! I wanted to make him something special so I used some of our Riley Blake Rocket Age fabric to make a cot quilt.


It turned out beautifully and they were delighted with it, I hope it becomes a family heirloom


And here he is at 5 weeks, such a gorgeous baby!

And in case anyone fancy’s making their own Rocket Age Quilt we have made up some fat quarter packs especially!


Summer sewing

Well I thought it was about time that I posted about some of the things I have been making this summer. Firstly for my gorgeous daughters birthday I made her a Gather Buchanan dressing gown using this beautiful Kaffe Fasset fabric called Big Blooms.

And I had to make her a matching toilet bag!

The other fabric range that is excellent for summer sewing is the Moda Regent Street Lawn, it is light weight and floaty, perfect for summer tops like the Grainline Scout Tee and my favourite from the Sewing Bee book, the Drape top.


We love the Regent Street Lawn fabric so much that we have decided to make up some Trixie Lixie Knicker kits in them.

That’s just a few of the things I have been making this summer, there is more to come!
