I had a bit of a spurt on some WIP's this afternoon:
finally got the top of this quilt done. I absolutely love it. The colours look amazing against the black (altho the picture doesn't show it up very well)
I made this with Amy Butler Bliss fabric. Jenny bought me a charm pack for mothers day and I bought another two and hey presto:
They really are the most gorgeous colours and the black shows them off really well.
I also finished sewing these into rows:
I first saw this design 10 years ago, when I visited my brother and his family in America. I knew straight away I would make it one day.
These were all made with scrap fabrics
And each mug has been blanket stiched onto the fabric
I also had a lucky find with the brown fabric as I think it looks like steaming hot tea!
I think I will use plain fabric to put in between the rows and the sashing: need to delve into my old sheet pile and see what I have.
And then I have two quilts that can be hand quilted on those impending autumn/winter nights! (a bit like today really!!)
