A Finish in Sight

I thought I would make use of some of the samples I had to make for the City and Guilds portfolio. I deliberately made all my applique samples in the same style to make a large mug rug/mat. Only the binding to finish now – although I seem to be adding cat hair to it too!

I had played about with the order for quite a while

 

I don’t know why they look pink when they are actually black and white with different shades of blue applique, I must have got the white balance totally wrong when I took them last night. The types of applique are; raw edge with machine and hand stitching. zig-zag and satin machine stitching; feather, blanket and chain by hand – needle turn and difference types of interfacing in various combinations. The bottom left shape had only straight stitch so I added another row of machine stitching and chose the top left layout.

The other layouts have given me some ideas for other quilts.

I am quite glad I have been making a small project as it is so hot. It has only rained once this month in Essex and we badly need rain for the new trees we planted a couple of months ago

I am having a break from stitching to see what everyone else has posted on Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching which you can find here

    1. Thank you. I wish I had done something similar for the other samples – although I have for the block samples for the last set to make a small quilt, coming soon!
