Charming Liberty progress and Fabriholics Anonymous Check In

Thanks for your input on my medallion quilt last week - I have been really sick since then so I haven't actually replied to any comments or thought about my next step with it yet, but your feedback has been extremely helpful, so a huge thanks. Not a lot has been happening on the sewing front as a result of major blurg and a severe lack of anything resembling motivation, but I'm so happy to finally be able to show you some progress on my Liberty charm quilt (the result of a few hours of not feeling too crap today.)

I've been slowly working on this since last November, but other projects have kept popping up and this has been pushed aside. But I'm working to an end of February deadline, so the finger has been pulled firmly out ;o). The central panel is now complete and I just need to add a few borders. It hasn't been at all difficult to put together - but deciding on an arrangement for the charm squares took a loooong time. It has been a really enjoyable quilt to put together - simple sewing, but Liberty fabric is just so gorgeous to work with.


It's also time for a Fabriholics Anonymous check in. I'm still not finding it hard (surprisingly) but as I said last month, I haven't started anything new which is definitely making it easier. The Flickr group is in full swing (apologies for my lack of activity there, I'm hoping to check in regularly from now on) and there have been some gorgeous creations added.

We'd love to know how you are all doing, so please link up if you would like to :o)
