sneak peak

I am currently working on a commissioned quilt, inspired by the book, "Guess how much I love you". I'm sure you know it, it's a bit special. The request was to make the quilt using the colours used in the book - muted browns, greens, blues and peachy/orange. It was so fun searching through the stash, and buying some new additions (including lovely ones from Maze and Vale). And it's been lovely to get back into a bit of sewing after a little summer break, and I'm enjoying the process again. Such a lovely feeling as it slowly comes together.
I hope it lives up to the inspiration...


  1. Hi Joanna

  2. Hi Joanna,

    This looks a lovely work and what a fab comission. This was my wee boys favourite book. We still say we love each other 'to the moon and back' in this house! Jo x
