It has been a heavenly holiday. Just what I needed, as the first term this year was rather long and stressful at times. I have been so excited about creating, and focused on several projects I had either put on the back burner, or had bought fabric for, but hadn't started. I had a charm pack of Moda Potluck squares that I planned to turn into a little wall quilt for Johnny's office (where our dear wee nephew and hopefully nieces stay when they visit). The fabrics are so bright and cheerful, with a 1930's feel. I arranged the squares in 2x2 blocks of matching colours then sewed the strips together.
Then I quilted it with squiggles, in threads to match the blocks.
I was very pleased with how the quilting turned out, and would love to use these fabrics to make some blouses or dresses.
Onto another project I had in the pipeline. The pretty small hexagon English pieced quilt, which is expanding merrily. I adore these fabrics, which are a blend of Lecien Sugar Flower, Pam Kitty and other scraps from the stash. They have a summery feel about them. I think this project will take a few more weeks to reach the quilt construction stage. I'm not sure about quilting it. Any ideas?
The third cushion was perfect for quilting, with great big lotus leaves, and pointy flowers to outline. Yummy colours too.
Mr Mouse is a huge fan of my quilts. He especially loves the red Kaffe quilt along the back of the couch.
I hope you have a lovely week, and will do my best to check in frequently with more posts.
