After losing my single needle stitch plate, I decided it was time to de-clutter my sewing studio. I made some interesting finds including this little quilt of Mr Bean which I did in Phil Thomas’s Foto to Fabric workshop about 2 years ago. I really enjoyed this workshop, I learnt so much and it was good fun.

I’m still pondering Page 45 as being a traditional quilter I find tackling a landscape style quilt quite daunting. However, I know it will be a fabulous learning experience so I an going to jump right in there and give it a shot.

I have been busy looking for a suitable image to work from and rather like this one of Wastwater in the Lake District.
