The quilt I am making is awaiting wadding to be purchased before I can go any further with it, so I decided to finish off some UFOs:
The union jack was started well before the Royal Wedding, but only just now made into a cushion! The middle cushion with the red border was a project taught by Lynette from The Stitch Witch at a recent Worthing Patchworkers meeting. It is a technique called shadow quilting, organza overlays the middle, and we all designed our own ‘Baltimore’ pattern.
Behanid the cushions is a blanket I am crotceting, using up all the random bits of wool Mum has given me. Unfortunately it looks very random! I now want to buy some wool colours that go together better!
Another recent project that has been on our to-do list for ages, was to print and frame some holiday photos for our lounge. These photos are of Venice, Rome and Prague.
Finally, here’s a winter wallhanging, started ages ago! It was almost complete, just waiting to be framed. But in the end I decided to bind it and I will use it as a table runner perhaps? I might sew some beads on it – or I might just put it away in the cupboard!
First off, a little BIA instruction book. Lots of practice with punching and binding! It’s a great course with lots of tips along the way.
Secondly, here’s a little 4” x 4” book with some ingenious pocket and fold out pages.
