Today is the last day to enter the draw for a copy of Mimi Kirchner's Tiny World Make-Do Pincushion. It is a great pattern and I've been having loads of fun making pincushions like this one! To enter go here and just leave a comment! For an extra chance to win follow me on Bloglovin!
So here is where I'm at with Love Entwined. The plumes are almost all stitched down.
I spent a couple of hours cutting and making oodles of tiny circles....48 of them!
They will be appliquéd to the red plumes. Here you can see the circles positioned on the plumes. I'm thinking the gold looks a little drab and lacking.
How about if I put another little circle in the centre of each gold oak leaf? I think that looks a little better but what do you think?
Once that is done I've got sixteen fussy little hearts to stitch down. I'm considering back basting appliqué rather than freezer paper or needle turn.
Finally Hancock's of Paducah is having a show and tell where you can vote for your favourite quilt. I've entered Stars in the Loft. If you would like to vote for it or just see all of the lovely quilts go here. You don't need a Facebook account to see the quilts or to vote. To view the quilts click on the "Vote" button. There are quilts with hundreds of votes and mine is nowhere near that number and that's okay. I just wanted to find a way to share my quilt with more people.
If you would like to read a bit more about the story of Stars in the Loft you can read it here, here and here! It took me years to find out who made the quilt. In fact the quilt had been finished for many years before I found the original. I also found other versions of the quilt!
That's it for today. It is time to sew down some little circles I think! Until I post again, happy sewing!
