Two more Brinton Hall blocks are stitched. Do you recognize the bird fabric in the first one? It is from the same fabric that I used for the four medallions in Birds in the Loft! I love the old fashioned look of those little birds. The remind me of pretty little postcards from the early 1900s.
I love the little basket filled with flowers!
That's a total of five picture blocks made which means there are only two to go! I've also been sewing together scraps for the pieces that will fill in the sides. I need a total of four of them.
I love making these fabric pictures framed with hexagons so I've made one as a centerpiece for a medallion quilt that will be combined with the extra rows of rosettes that I removed from Birds in The Loft. It looks a little insipid and pale but I plan to add to it so that it is more dramatic!
I've got another picture of one of my old incomplete quilt tops that I came across. I showed you a picture of part of it in my last post. This is the centre medallion. You can see there is a hard crease from being folded for such a long period of time. I estimate I made this more than ten years ago. I'm determined to complete the quilt top in the next few weeks so stay tuned for more pictures!
Looks like I've got my work cut out for me so I had best get going. Until I post again, happy sewing!
Such a lot of hexie goodness. I love the framed Brinton Hall blocks. Also the "old" quilt is beautiful. I'm so glad you are going to finish it up as it is gorgeous. Happy Stitching Karen.ReplyDelete
Yes, your old quilt is really nice and well worth finishing. That is yet another arrangement of hexies that I haven't exactly seen before! I like the different coloured paths in each round. Lots of fun!ReplyDelete
These projects are so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Your hexie blocks are windows of beauty!! Yippee for getting out an old unfinished top to finish! It's certainly a quilt that deserves to be out of the cupboard.ReplyDelete
They look gorgeous Karen! You are again so busy and quick ! Wow!ReplyDelete
Beautiful hexies - makes me want to pick mine up again.ReplyDelete
The framed blocks are so beautiful! It looks like you are deep into those older projects. I have a few that are so close to the finish, but I can't seem to make myself work on them. There are too many fun new things distracting me!ReplyDelete
The Brinton Hall blocks are such rich and harmonious combinations--I love them.ReplyDelete
Well done for digging out those WIPs, it looks like it's going to be a bright and cheerful quilt when you've finished working on it.ReplyDelete
Wow....of course they are all gorgeous, but the pale green one is my favorite!ReplyDelete
Yes that lighter one is fabulous! Looks as if theres another two beautiful quilts going to emerge very soon!ReplyDelete
Okay, do you have a cook and a maid? How do you get so much done?ReplyDelete
