I may have been quiet on the blogging front but I have been a busily crafting. Here are a few things I have made, or am making since I last blogged ( excluding QAL progress which gets a post all of it's own).
Some big, soft, fat, fluffy cushions. Here they are on our day bed on my new favouritist quilt ever. More on that later.
here and totally inspired by this cutie . I just hand quilted it with Pearl 8 cotton.
I LOVE IT! It's backed in a super wide special backing fabric, hot pink. It was nice to not piece the back for a change and it makes the basting process simpler as no bows and puckers to deal with due to crooked seams.
Elizabeth Hartman's Practical Guide to Patchwork. I have added extra border to give it enough drop for my sisters queen sized bed. Yesterday morning when I got up at 5:30am I had 36 trimmed but separate blocks. By 1pm I had a basted quilt ready to be quilted. I went pretty hard to get this done. As I baste outside on our deck, which is covered, I need a rain free period to do it. It started raining again last night...and hasn't stopped!
Doesn't that fat red strip in bottom right stand out? This is the 4th biggish quilt I've made with these bright materials. I never thought I'd say it but I need a break from them. I love this quilt but I am glad it's going to live somewhere else. I have just 3 weeks to get this baby done and gifted before we head OS for a month. Eek, can I do it? We will all have to wait and see.
Have a fun and safe week. Ness xx
