A New Project

I have a lovely old quilting book called ‘Patchwork; 25 classic step-by-step projects’ by Diana Lodge. The quilt on the cover is the inspiration for the design, although curiously it is not one of the projects in the book. Even more curiously the hexagon template is actually an octagon!

They will all have another row of 1 1/2″ hexies and sashing to join them together. I took the photos on my phone under electric light so the colours are not really true. It is a scrap quilt and some of the fabrics used are the end of that particular one in my stash.

I think it will take about 30 lozenges, plus half lozenges, to make a quilt for my bed, so I have a long way to go. But that is the nature of Slow Sunday Stitching and more can be seen at Kathy’s Quilts

OMG Fanfare

Fanfare is the name of the project that I am putting forward for One Monthly Goal – the fanfares can wait til I actually finish it! I’ve had this sitting around for years and it is part of a challenge I set myself when I first started quilting – to make all of the quilts or dolly quilts in Quilting From Little Things by Sarah Fielke. She is one of my favourite quilters and I love her quirky colouful designs.

 

I also bought this fabulous ball fringe a couple of years ago. When I bought it I was asked what it was for – I didn’t have a project in mind and the salesman said ‘you are my favourite type of customer’ haha

I am thinking I might be turning it into a cushion cover but my goal is to finish the applique and sew it all together at the very least.

So many wonderful projects to see
