Lots of lovelies have arrived in the post in the last week :O)
other fugly fabric How can this gorgeous panel be FUGLY !!!! So I grabbed the sizzix and with DH's help cut the 2.5" strips, one cut and all 8 strips were done, once I get the hang of making sure the fabric is being folded correctly, it is going to save soooo much time and I won't have woggly strips, so before taking JP to the speech therapist, I got busy pinning on the strips and sewing them...even managed to get it batted and backed beforehand and when we got home, I stitched around the ditch of the border and the lines that on the piccie are black are now aurifil cream and we're ready for more quilting... I was thinking some perle cotton hand stitching *I know me handstitching...argghhh but it would be a cute project to take to patchwork class* and there are lovely swirls on the flowers, the cherries and apples... the birdies all asking for some stitching. What do you think ?? any inspiration for me ???
My hand dyed fabric from quilt hexie arrived, its really gorgeous and its going to be a very special project that uses this fabric, perhaps not in the short term, I need to use it properly.
Last week I started the country Block of the month from the french magazine Quilt Country, this one needs stitching around the applique and some embroidery for names, signs, etc etc....its supposed to be two ladies taking their machines to the quilt shop, it doesn't really look anything yet but once I get busy on the applique I'm sure it'll fall into place.
