Here is what I got up to in October!
1. Doorstop, 2. Pillow Fight Cushion - one side! 3. Small Scandinavian Woven heart, 4. Applique mushrooms, 5. Large Scandinavian Woven heart, 6. Puffy Pouch, 7. Fabric Basket, 8. Spools blocks, 9. Applique Robins.
A lot of skill building went on this month - prevaricating ( but I was already really good at that), designing for my swaps:
- a cushion (see mosaic 2) for the Brit Quilt Pillow Fight - half done!
- a Modern Christmas Tablerunner - in Susan's swap - the top is complete!
and following Ayumi's gorgeous Puffy Pouch tutorial (mosaic 6) for the Scrappy Fabric Swap with Kat
I also designed my very own block - the Scandinavian Woven Heart (mosaic 3 & 5), I made spool blocks (mosaic 8) and drafted blocks on two workshops I attended and every Friday is Free Motion Quilting Friday with Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting. This is my latest effort in FMQ...
I would like to have a go at paper piecing next - although I am not really a neat and tidy sort of person ( you may already have guessed this!). I have had a little go at it but no serious attempt as yet to master it - it is on my hit list of things to do so any tips on books, blogs etc as a starting point for a beginner would be gratefully received!
Think blogger must be playing up cos no pix Nicky!ReplyDelete
Anyway, suggest you go look at Carol Doak, brilliant foundation piecing expert - she has a DVD for beginners that is first rate.
Another great month (and the photos are working now!), I hadn't realised how many lovely things you'd worked on last month!ReplyDelete
I can see pictures and I love your scandinavian woven heart.ReplyDelete
You've made some really beautiful things this month! I love the table runner and the hearts :)ReplyDelete
I think my favourite is the mushrooms. Those are very cute shrooms.ReplyDelete
Love those mushrooms and little birds, the doorstop and just everything! What is the meaning of that big long word you used - prevaricating???? excuse my ignorance!ReplyDelete
You have been a busy girl! Go for the paper piecing...I think you will like it!ReplyDelete
I love your string block & those spools!!ReplyDelete
Looks like October was quite a productive month for you and you've got lots of fun projects to show for it! Congrats!ReplyDelete
wow, you had a productive month, especially when you have completed your table runner, which must have taken agesReplyDelete
Great October missus xxxReplyDelete
Lots of loveliness for October. Your machine appliques are just adorable.ReplyDelete
I love your designs for the pillow swap and the Scandinavian Heart!! Your mushrooms and Robins are adorable!! I have always loved the UK robins-- they are different from the American Robins we have here. And I also love all the colorful little tits you have over there. We have a common titmouse that is grey-- and a sweet bird. Your Christmas table runner is also fabulous!! You are on a creative roll!ReplyDelete
Love it all but I am totally in love with your robins!ReplyDelete
Love the greens in your pillow and the table runner looks wonderful!ReplyDelete
