Summer Sewing

I saw that Jennifer at Ellison Lane is having a summer sewing contest. There are 4 categories,: quilts, bags & accessories, home decor and clothing. And some amazing entries

So, for the taking part, I am putting this in to the home decor category

 This is an appliqued wall hanging that lives in my front room.  I love it the colours and it always reminds me of our surfing holiday in Cornwall because that is where I did a lot of it, in the evenings

 I used the freezer paper method for my applique and blanket stitched around each shape. Its a very satisfying job

 The pattern came from Henry Glass fabrics - they have a page with free projects.  I changed it slightly using the green ric rac rather than fabric for the stems and I think it worked well
Applique is a great project to take away with you - I am busy looking for my next project so that I have some on hand for the summer!


  1. This is a beautiful applique quilt! Good luck in the competition :)

  2. Very lovely entry and I like that it invokes happy summer memories too!

  3. This is so pretty, I love the different fabrics you used!

  4. It's really pretty - it looks fun to do to!

  5. That looks great! Cool pattern =D

  6. Lovely appliqué. I hope that you are successful in the competition. Di x
