I actually made this quilt as a baby gift for my friend's first child.
For those of you who love zakka style there are a some lovely little items that would delight you! Isn't this teapot cover cute?
And now for the next four blocks in A Few of My Favourite Things! I have yet to photograph the entire quilt so fingers crossed that the weather cooperates so that I can get out and take a few pictures.
Progress continues on my LE quilt. The zigzag border is almost complete. I just have to make the corner units and then it will be ready to be stitched down. This panel measures 31.5". The zigzags are English paper pieced. My plan at this point is to pin the border down with tiny appliqué pins. I'll then stitch down the outside edge all the way around. Then I'll stitch down the inside edge however before doing so I will remove the basting thread and the papers.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Love Entwined it is a quilt pattern that has been drafted by Esther Aliu. The original was made in 1790! Esther is providing her pattern free of charge. The first section was released in June 2013 and each month another section of the pattern is released. Esther has set up a Yahoo group that you can join if you are interested in making this quilt. You can read about it here.
There'll be no post tomorrow because I am taking a half square triangle workshop with Jeanne Simpson. I've made zillions of half square triangles over the years but find that I always learn something new so I'm looking forward to tomorrow. And it is always fund to spend time with other quilters! So until I post again, happy sewing!
Wow, I just discovered your blog and have been lost in it for hours past my bedtime! Love your Lazy Punk quilt - might have to try one of those after I get done my Christmas sewing.ReplyDelete
