This is the Birds in the Loft medallion stitched together. It is now larger than my design wall so I'll have to start taking pictures outside but it is way too cold and there is far too much snow for that! For now this picture will have to do!
The next round will involve one final print but it will not completely surround the medallion AND best of all I can start adding some hexagon rosettes to the quilt. I've been through my fabrics and have pulled so many different colours and prints. What I finally settled on is a toffee coloured print that looks like a woodblock print. There is nothing on the selvage so I can't tell you anything about the fabric other than I've had it for several years and I quite like the look of it.
The caramel tones and deep crimson will work well with what I've already got in the quilt. I'll cut some 2 1/2" strips so I can make the hexagons if you-know-who wakes up and gets off my sewing table!
Until I post again, I hope your sewing is uninterrupted!
He's a little sleeping angel! Yup, you have a friend who is interested in your hobby. Karen, your medallion is absolutely gorgeous. This quilt is going to be another beauty. I can't wait to see what it will look like with the addition of rosettes. Just lovely!ReplyDelete
Dear me, the quilt is spectacular. I'm just loving it. And little Jinxie. He looks so content and happy. I think he just loves to be near you - very near you. LOL.ReplyDelete
He is so cute and I know your problem. ;)ReplyDelete
It's beautiful Karen. The switch to the blue bees really looks great.ReplyDelete
Eight months and he is already big -- look at his neck! Very macho. I think you have named him well, because I'm pretty sure he's part tiger, and will not let you rest for many years to come!ReplyDelete
Beautiful, your 'Birds in the loft' and JinXie. Hè is dreaming of a nice quilt with birds. He doesn't know how to get it, haha. Groeten van DientjeReplyDelete
Oh m y goodness this is gorgeous. I started an oversized hex project years ago....its in the ufo pile.ReplyDelete
This project is looking great, love those colours together. As for caramel tones I think they blend in well with Jinxie - a good disguise!ReplyDelete
That is such an interesting setting for your hexies. I love it!! Love your kittie pics...adorable!ReplyDelete
Beautiful - quilt and cat! :)ReplyDelete
what a sweetie pie-I find kitties so comforting-and fun as well-especially after a nap, even our 12 year old plus kitty comes to life full of energy lolReplyDelete
a very lovely medallion. your piece of cloth looks like block printed fabrics from India. these colours and prints are quite common here.ReplyDelete
Hi Chitra - I agree with you about the cloth - it really does have an Indian look and feel about it! I think fabrics like this add so much personality to a quilt. Sorry I couldn't email you directly but you are a no reply blogger!Delete
He is cute!! Lovely to see your progress!!ReplyDelete
That boys eyes are liquid gold lol and he's just smitten with you face it!ReplyDelete
Stitching clearly comes 2nd!
You are such an ambassador for hexagons and their settings. I'm loving this piece, Karen. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone - so good to see your progress.ReplyDelete
With such a cute face, how can anyone get mad at such a baby. I love seeing pictures of him and of course your progress on your hexagons too.ReplyDelete
