So first off the bat is Singings tree block for our Sewn together bee. We were given free creative control :)
|I promis it will be ironed again before it goes in the post!|
This is really an embroidery pattern that I tweaked into applique :) Hope it goes well in her quilt!
Next up are blocks for Say Yes Juliet she has had the fun of going first in our new Sew Bee It group. I had rather a lot of fabric left over so I ran off another block "buy one get one free" style :)
I've also finished off 3, yes thats right 3! lap quilts since my last post (This either means I quilt fast or blog slowly - I have my own theory on which it is lol)
The first one up is a photographic disappointment I'm afraid, I don't really know what happened, story of my life there, but all the pics I have of the full quilt are utterly out of focus so here is a snippet shot instead
Lots of stripes in Kaffe Fassett's Mitered boxes pattern with a strip boarder. At least the photo shows off the quilting :) If it gets out sunny tomorrow I'll try for another picture of the whole thing.
Next I had a bit of a prompt to use some of my Modern Meadow fabric, it seemed no matter where on the internet I went I kept bumping into This quilt So I thought well why not give it a try and heres the outcome
Its backed in a fab shirting cotton I was given last year, its just soooo soft!
Last but not least I gave in and played with some of my Bento blocks! I'm sorry I couldn't resist! They were calling my name...singing it in fact!
I had great fun quilting all 3 of these quilts, not one quilting pattern was used, they were all freehand "drawn" with thread - They may not be the most complicated designs or the best quilting in the world but I had a blast making them!
Hope you guys have a fun week ahead of you with loads of free time for sewing!
Edited to add
Sorry for some reason the links I put in my posts only sometimes come up in a different colour, I have no idea why this is, it's starting to annoy me as I link all the time but they aren't showing unless you hover the curser over them. Grrr.
