I finally have a finish to talk about. I haven’t blogged in such a long time. I am sorry for that. I have been hard at work in my new sewing room though.
This wall hanging is Snow Happens. The pattern is by Bird Brain Designs. I have a bit of a thing for snowmen. The embroidery is all done by hand and everything else was done by machine. I actually finished this piece last year but I just got around to quilting it this week so I could have it to decorate the new house for Christmas. It’s definitely not perfect but its only my second hand embroidery piece so I am pretty happy with the outcome. This was also my first time machine quilting with Aurifil and I must say it was amazing to work with.
Pardon the pins in that last picture. I have a hanging sleeve on the back I haven't sewn down yet.
I also have my Jamestown Landing quilt, pattern by Bonnie Hunter, almost done. I have the top done and the borders ready to go on. However, my large iron decided to die a couple days ago so I need to go iron shopping this weekend so I can get that top done. I was hoping to baste it sometime this weekend. I want to get it quilted before her newest mystery starts. Only a couple more weeks away!
This week I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts.
A perfect finish for the season - what fun!ReplyDelete
