The Mini Quilt

Well folks here it is. I’m afraid my photography skills are pretty limited, and, as they (whoever they are) always say, it really does look better in real life.

So what do you think?

I have never hand quilted anything before and there were a few injuries on the way. My husband asked it I needed “one of those things you have to stop all the finger pricking”, but I’m afraid no thimble covers the whole hand does it?  

Any way, I love my little cup cakes and when I can find my mini pegs I will put it on it’s little wire hanger and place it in my sewing room.

A little W.I.P

A wip

Above is a sneaky peak of something I have been working on. I was inspired by this: 

for Emily by nanaCompany.

It was made by the lovely Amy, she is a very talented lady and she has an etsy shop here.

I have done most of the applique work on mine and I am going to do some hand quilting, which is another new thing for me to try so you may not get to see the finished result for a little while. But that’s OK, isn’t it? 

Pretty little bunting

As you know my daughter loves pink (so do I), plus I love Cath Kidston as you saw yesterday. So what could be more perfect than pretty pink bunting incorporating some CK and Tilda fabric.

My daughter’s bed and the bunting in situ, it really looks delightful.

It was super easy to make, I just cute 2 triangles for each flag with pinking shears, sewed around the edges, then attached some binding. Job done.

Until next time………
