I had a fabulous stitching day with friends this week and asked if I could show some of their projects so here they are. This cute stitchery cot quilt was a kit, sorry I don't have the information on it.This quilt is very old but to my friend's credit, she's not letting it be a UFO and is doing lots of hand quilting on this. Colours are not true sorry. It's really a musky pink. Check out the bears, more stitchery and yet to have more quilting on it.
I don't want this post to be a book so I'll post about those applique curves soon.
Since I live south of Sydney, I don't often go North of Sydney but since it was a nice day and DH is on holidays, we decided to go for a drive about an hour and a half up from us.
First stop was Cottage Quiltworks in Biloga which was the featured shop on Sewn. The fabrics were to die for, lots of ranges and the ladies were ultra friendly, sorry no photos. There was an exciting class going on in the back room with Sue Ross, wish I could've joined in. On the way home we stopped at Material Obsession, another friendly lot of ladies welcomed us there and we saw the next Sue Ross block of the month being packed up. Nice fabrics were being laid out. I never noticed the scissors on the roof until I loaded this photo.
What struck me was the eclectic fabrics and big bold prints you don't see anywhere else.
Of course lots of Kaffe Fassetts.
The rest of the week I've been doing some blocks, nothing too exciting, some stars.
and some baskets, still loving doing them.
And surprises in the mail. Look what Jean made me, the pear pincushion is made with linen and fabulous pear fabric, her signature is all about pears. It has pride of place on my sewing table.
Rush over to see Jean at Linen and Raspberry if you want to go in the draw to win one and she is also giving away a most elegant needlecase with it.
