Sounds mysterious doesn’t it ….. well it is only that I am venturing into the world of patchwork quilts. This is something very new to me to actually stitch, although I have made up a design before and my mother stitched it together.
I have several designs sketched out on graph paper but the one I am attempting first is called “The Bee Quilt”. I have already cut out all the squares for half of the design and laid the pattern out – see below:-
My intention is to have the bee cross stitch as the centrepiece and border it with the lavender fabric then patchwork around that.
Stayed tuned for updates ….
On another subject, I have not ignored my cross stitch and below is an image of how far I am with the Jane Austen quote. (Many thanks to Lili from stitchingbasket.com for updating me on the alphabet situation.) I have decided to stitch the design as it is.
Well that is all my news this week.
Bye for now
