Tea with Jane

This is a wonderful complimentary design from the Sampler Girl and perfect for my Jane Austen Sampler Wall (this frame came with a mat and I covered it with fabric). I’m tacking up even the unframed samplers to get an idea of how to arrange everything (and to urge my frame-maker into action). I also see that this wall really needs to be painted!

I had an opportunity to pop into a little out of the way quilt shop today that I used to be able to walk to (3 homes ago). I picked up some charm packs and sewed them into strips for a quilt when I got home. I still need to sew the strips together and they haven’t been pressed but you can get the idea I think, just pretty squares in random order – I’ve pinned them to another quilt I have hanging on the wall.

Today’s stitching project:

  2. The freebie from Tanya’s site came out so pretty! Great job Mary Kathryn! And the new quilt looks wonderful. What a pretty set of fabrics. What is the name of the charm pack? You were really motivated to come home from the quilt shop and sew them right then.
