Finally a New Quilt for an Old Friend!

Finally I have made time to work on a new quilt!
And I'm linking up, quite justifiably I feel, to the Slow Bloggers again, who are just not slow enough for me..!

We have enjoyed having lots of visitors lately and that always gets us out and about in this beautiful place which we are enjoying rediscovering; (for those who don't know we have moved back to our old home after a number of years overseas).
-just a little taste before I show you what I've been up to on the sewing front:

We have had a couple of snow days

Always feels like a holiday when people can't make it into work or school.

We have enjoyed walking our new puppy, even though it's been pretty chilly!

Ice on the tussocks

There are always beaches, whatever the weather

Don't be fooled it's not tropical!

Inspiration for yet another quilt abounds, more ideas than I can manage to realise.

Inland day trips happen too.

 I have kept pretty much up to date with bee blocks and I recently laid out these which my bee mates made for my turn in June, of the Do. Good Stitches group, (which since this photo I have sewn together). There is one more block not shown here which is to brighten the back. I requested improvised log cabins in red, yellow and orange tones with neutral frames.

Bee sewing is the only thing I have got to until just recently. These are for August and the request was for a log cabin block in pink and blue with "I spy" centres for two baby quilts for a refuge.

Then finally this week the visitors left the sewing room, and I made time, assembled a design wall and got to cutting up shot cottons for an overdue 50th birthday present for a friend.

I've been playing around with different options and it's changed a bit from this since, but enjoying the process!

Inspired by this

Maybe I should just say "more anon"...!
