I have been keeping busy - not so much sewing but lots of cleaning and re-organising. I am in the process of making new cushions for our living room but don't feel like doing them today. I finally got round to putting this little quilt up on the wall.
It has been done for months and had just been folded up and moved around. Because it was creased I pinned it to the carpet and gave it a good soaking with a water spray and left it to dry and it did the trick. It is now flat as a pancake :-) It is a Bareroots pattern called written in Thread.
The Chinese coins quilt I half started and then changed my mind about now looks like this.
I have border fabric ordered for this and have bought some funky flowery polar fleece to back it with so hopefully that will get done soon and another UFO off the list. I think I will give this to Jess to keep in her car in case she ever needs it.
And this week I fell in love . . . . .with a quilt from the latest Quilters Newsletter.
It's this one
Gorgeous, gorgeous !! This one is made mainly in 1800's repro fabrics which are quite hard to get hold of here. I have a few but not many. Although I really want to make this I want to do it with fabrics from my stash. So I plan to loosely follow the colourway with what I have. Of course I could not rest until I made a sample block
I really did not want to start another big quilt but resistance was futile - lol !! We all have no willpower . . . .
A few ladies have asked me where the pattern for the Mariners Compass came from. As these ladies were showing as no-reply I will answer here. It is a 2 part project from Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine - Vol15 nos 3 and 4.
And finally the raffle quilt finally got to Canada to the lovely Kathy. It took it's sweet time getting there ( over 10 weeks I think ) but is now in it's new home - thank goodness.
I think that's all for now - I am flitting about like a fly - lol !!
Take care xxx
