I have now been home just under a week, and though I feel heaps better, I am still not running on full throttle, but I was keen to get crafting, I have SOoo missed sewing. I was finishing a quilt for my daughter, it was still sitting where I had left it, so yesterday I finished quilting it and made the binding, attached it and hand stitched the edges, I finally finished it this morning.
This quilt started with five tops, a love for Snoopy and my daughters favourite 3 tier skirt, which she wore when she was about 8 years old, she had kept them for ages, not knowing what to do with them, also she wanted the quilt made mainly from purple, her favourite colour with no white. I call it her memory quilt.
This one has a retro feel, probably because of the colour, I always think of purple as a 70's colours.
I have to say I am so pleased with it, the purple fabric was a 100% cotton sheet that I picked up from a charity shop and died vivid purple.
|On the back I added a carefully placed panel with all the tops .|
This lovely little gap top with the pretty edging was tricky to position, but with the addition of the embroidery it looks fine.
|also I was struggling with two odd shaped triangular pieces and how to place them, when I came up with the idea of turning them into hearts, which I then blanket stitched.|
So motivated, now what shall I create next?
