Friday Finish

Hello everybody

It’s been a while since a Friday Finish but that is what makes it special. Do you remember my Seasonal Quilt, well here are some photographs to help you …….

Before

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is bottom-border-attached.jpg

After

And here are the backing fabric and the wadding.

The backing fabric will have a horizontal seam half way and it is Andover by Andover Fabrics. I thought it echoed the front design beautifully. The Wadding is Hobbs Heirloom Premium Cotton

Now all I have to do is decide on a pattern to quilt it – firstly I thought about quilting in the ditch around the coloured hexagons but that leaves quite a lot of fabric unstitched. How much is too little? or too much? I have a heart and curved vine leaf design which might be appropriate, which could go on the white areas. Decisions, decisions!!!!!

Other stitching projects have also been worked on. I have started to sew the Old Rose Window blocks together – first line is complete and half of the second line. Matching all the seams is quite difficult. I have actually decided on the border material which arrived last week. So good progress there.

Cross stitch wise – I have made good progress with the Robin Table Runner here are some photos

The beginning ……..

in Feb 2021

and now in March 2021

Last but not least a new start

I have a new pieced hexagonal quilt called Ring of Roses. Here is a photo of how it will progress. I have stitched a lot more hexies than what is shown in the photo.

And that is all (quite a productive week off work) – hope you stay safe and well
