I've finished a couple of little quilts recently and thought that you might like a squizz...
The Wedding Bands quilt is my favourite and was fun to do.. it's not pieced, but is photocopied onto cotton fabric. (not by me) its a bit of a cheat, i know, but as the little coloured squares are only about 5mm they are a bit small to piece.. i have used a very fine fill and backed it with an old hanky. Each ring is quilted on the inner rim and again on the outer rim and i have quilted a 4 petal daisy in the white centres. Its a bit hard to see it properly in the photo's. I thought that it would be fun to photograph it on top of the real size one, that you might have seen in a previous blog 'Sweet dreams are made of this'.
The other 2 little quilts are printed fabric, that come up quite nice if you quilt every line in the design.. I'm not finished with these yet. I think that they will look much nicer with a bit of ageing treatment.. first I'll soak them in a bleach solution and wash and let dry, then I'll dribble cold tea over them to give the appearance of age.. I have lots of little quilts waiting to be finished, but, 'sew little time'...
Its winter here, so I don't have many roses out at the moment, but the angels trumpets are just finishing their run. I've posted a few piccy's to show you how they looked..
Great hey! I know they are poisonous (hence the name Angel's Trumpet) but I have always grown them and never had a problem.. Hope they add some cheer to your day..
Lots of Love
