Hi everyone. I hope you have all had a good week, Mine has been busy with work, sewing and being a mum. My car needs a taxi sign on it because gosh I do some driving around. I thought once the boys got older I would get more "me" time but it hasn't happened yet. Anyway last night in with lots of other lovely ladies for Friday Night sewing, Hubby was on night shift so I couldn't use my sewing machine while he was trying to sleep so I did a bit of hand sewing on this quilt that has been put to one side for far too long. I appliqued 4 circles onto the quilt and I love it.
This pattern is called In Full bloom by Lynette Anderson. I only have 3 stitcheries to go so now I really want to get this baby finished.
You can probably see some quilting already on the quilt, what I did was get the quilt beforehand as I didn't want quilting over the stitcheries, its really easy to needleturn them on. Just make sure you only sew through the top layer of fabric. I like the effect alot.
I have started a new quilt for myself, Its a Union Jack quilt in all fig tree fabrics. Next to Bonnie and Camille and tilda, Fig tree is up there with my most favourite fabrics. I just love how soft and pretty they are and all ranges go together so well. I have a bundle of Aloha girl on order so I can't wait to see that.
I have joined a small swap on Instagram and this is what I made my partner, they are lavender filled bags, I thought they turned out really nice. What do you think?
I also made a liberty pouch and accessories for another Instagram swap I joined a little while ago and I couldn't remember if I shared what I made.
These goodies are now living in USA,
Tomorrow I have so much sewing planned, I have a few new designs that I must make a start on as I have already been commissioned for those. Exciting stuff for Lizzie the Quilter.
