Girl’s Day Out Quilt

I have quilted this quilt – Girl’s Day Out by Libby Richardson – several times now and it is a lovely design. Andrea’s choice of colours are gorgeous.  

With quilts like this, I usually ditch stitch and outline the blocks and appliqué.  Andrea chose a freehand hearts and loops design to go around the appliqué blocks and feathers for the border.

I like how Andrea personalised this block.

My Dream Fabric Cupboard

It has now been over six months since the extension started.  Hopefully only a month or so to go – I can’t wait to have my life back.

My dream was to have a walk in cupboard to store my fabric rather than have it scattered in boxes and drawers all over the place.  And now my dream has become a reality.  It got fitted out to my specifications this week and it is exactly how I imagined it would be. 

I promise I will post a picture once the extension is finished and I have my fabric in there.

Also I received a box of treats from Kathy of Tamarack Shack in our latest exchange.  I think I was royally spoilt - especially with the hand made bag she included.

Dresden Plate

Leonie’s sister brought the Dresden Plate shapes back from the US about twenty years ago.  Leonie put the blue circle in the centre and appliquéd them onto the cream background.

Leonie decided to have a detailed feather allover on the quilt which gives it a lovely texture.

Double Wedding Ring on Black

This is a different version of Janet Sansom’s embroidery double wedding ring.  I think it looks really effective on the black.

I have linked to Esther’s Blog for her WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays.
