This has been a week for little quilts here in the home of Don't Look Now. First up is my Doll Quilt which is all but finished and will begin it's journey around the world tomorrow once the binding is sewn down and a label is attached. I have called it I (heart) pink!
I used Lite Steam-A-Seam2 for the first time with this project, and I must say it is very nice to work with. It is not quite as tacky once it is attached to the applique shape as the Floraini product that I have been using lately but produces cleaner edges which is very nice. The applique was then secured with free motion stitching. The stitching detail is also free motion.
As always I quilted it to within an inch of it's life :). I hope that my swap partner likes it.
I received my little DQS5 quilt earlier in the week. It is a very cool creation from Helen of Patchwork of Mini Grey. Thank you so much Helen, it's really nice.
On Wednesday my new edition of Homespun arrived in the mail ... look what I found on page 18 ....
How cool is that little girl of mine??? I made her you know!!! We will all have to wait until next month now to discover what happens next!!!
There is also a very fabulous quilt by Claire from Matching Pegs in this edition together with several other excellent projects.
I also love the quilt on the front cover by Sandy Klop!
The magazine is really looking great and going from strength to strength ... well done Catherine!
Have a great weekend everyone ... hopefully by next week I will have caught up with you all.
PS. Happy birthday my love! We all adore you so very much!
