S'more Love Quilt Top.

Thanks to the ladies of the Siblings Together Bee I've received all my blocks back very speedily and I've now pieced them together.

Aren't those fabrics cute? As I've mentioned before they're S'more Love by Cosmo Cricket for Moda Fabrics and all the fabrics for the quilt tops for this charity bee have been donated by Moda.
I'm planning on adding a light bright, narrow border and then a pieced border from the S'more Love.

The backing for the quilt has been kindly donated by Sew Fresh Fabrics and it arrived today. It's Type by Julia Rothman for Windham Fabrics.


It's such a coincidence that Sew Fresh Fabrics are based in Ipswich, MA, USA and I'm from Ipswich, UK. Wikapedia tells me that Ipswich Massachusetts was named after Ipswich, Suffolk, UK in 1634. Just a bit of trivia for you.

Last time I showed a photo of some unexpected autumnal roses from my garden. Today it's the turn of the poppy. These beauties self seeded and have managed to put on a show before the weather turns really cold.
