April Finish

I have finished my Quilty Fun Sew-a-Long Christmas Quilt.  This was a project from Lori Holt that she ran in 2014 on Instagram - some of the blocks were in her book "Quilty Fun" and some were only on IG.  I didn't do it at the time ...though I bought the book - so thought I'd better make the quilt at least.

Her pattern has a pieced border which I chose not to do and I used a strawberry block from her Farm Girl Vintage book instead of the log cabin block - more appropriate to an Australian Christmas I thought.

FNSI - April

It seems life is full of mystery projects, or secret sewing . . .so there is a lot I don't want to show...but I can show this - and leave out the explanation.

I hope everyone had a productive night - Thanks again to Wendy for organising the party.
Enjoy the weekend...and maybe some more sewing...?

Wendy Williams Workshop

I spent today doing Day One of a Wendy Williams Workshop - when I first saw this quilt called "Round the Garden" ....
 -  it really drew me in...I wouldn't attempt it at the moment - it is so big...but it's great to learn her techniques and play with all the bright colours she uses.

So today we learnt some flowers and how to use some simple embroidery stitches to decorate efforts today - and one that I did for homework.  These flowers will get more decorative work on them when they are attached to the background.

Far from perfect - but nature isn't perfect either!!!

Off to finish my some tracing to do!

FNWF - April

Wonderful to enjoy another cyber sewing night...After a late start (Arrived home from a Sydney trip at 8.30pm)  I did a bit more on my tree.  It's getting so close to being finished.

 For those who visited last month and wondered what my teaser would become..

The end result.

Til next time - Happy Sewing
