Popping in to share a few projects I finished recently. If you follow me on facebook or instagram you may have already seen these.
First up is the cutiest Pirate. This pattern is from Jodie RicRacSews purchased recently from Bella’s Patchwork
Here he is without his eye patch!
Still deciding whether to put buttons or stitching down the middle of his body.
After attending the quilt show earlier in the year I decided I wanted to make a fabric book. Well the stars aligned and Patchwork with Gail were open one Sunday a few months back so off I went!
On that trip I also picked up a Ava and Oliphont panel from the Circus range, also by Jodie. One of the first quilts I made included fabric from that range.
On a recent charity shop visit I picked up some merino yarn which was too good to leave behind. I was looking for tea towels and doilys and got distracted.
Simple raglan jumper is from a vintage Sirdar pattern Sunshine Series 284 and the hat is Vanessa Ewing Basic Beginner Hat 2×2 rib brim.
More knitting – this time a premie knit for charity
And back to sewing – Christmas isn’t that far
This is my first ever hand pieced quilt. I began stitching the hexies and the grandmother’s garden pattern way back in January 2017! Most of the fabric is left over from other projects.
The Grandmother’s garden blocks are joined with white hexies, some with self print.
This quilt measures 150x178cm. This was quilted on my domestic machine in a diamond pattern.
The back is a lovely floral. I finished with yellow binding – it seemed a nice happy colour to go with all the colours in the top and the backing.
Well I think that’s enough for today!
I do have some cards to share but I will do that another day!
Thanks for stopping
