Ok, ok.............this IS a quilting blog, so I guess you are going to get lots of quilts! A few posts back I gave you the above sneak peek, a bit mean of me wasn't it! Well it's nice to have a few surprises. I have been working away in secret on a new BOM for The Shop . Now I can show you where I am up to so far.
This lovely design by Gail Pan called "A Merry Christmas Garden".
It is a six month BOM. Here you see four months, I have finished month five & nearly month six, then I can piece the six blocks together & put the borders on & find someone to quilt it for me LOL!!
Kerryn & I had a fun trip to a couple of fabric warehouses to choose fabrics. I used the Apliquick needle turn tools & appliqué paper endorsed & given to me by Lynette Anderson for all the appliqué. See here for my blog post about these tools.
Another secret I nearly forgot about was the Lynette Anderson "Sewing Friends Cushion".
We have made several kits up of this cute cushion using the fabrics shown called "Mending Fences" by Lynette.
Right that is all The Country Yard quilts, cushions & quilting I had part in for now! I am up to date with all of them..............................well there is another that has just come through the doors to be quilted, but it isn't a secret, so when it's done I can show you!
Now here is one I finished for Cat a couple of weeks ago, this too was a secret for a wee bit until Cat had put the binding on & given to a special friend. See Cat's blog post about this lovely gift here.
Cat asked to please have an all over design on the scrappy star then, her words "work your magic on the white".
So using gunold poly thread I quilted loops & stars in the scrappy Star. The for the white I let the feathers take over! All this over cotton batting.
Some straight lines on the border & I was done.
That's one for you quilt back lovers!
Next time I have caterpillars, butterflies, flowers, geisha girls, a thought provoking panel quilt & teddy bears! but maybe not all in the same post! OR the same quilt!
