Looking through the blog archives it would seem these next two quilts were started in October 2010! You may recall my original post with the link to the book by Lynne Edwards. In a moment of madness I chose to work on two quilts at the same time and as a result have two very different quilts with the same blocks.
The first is all done in pinks and blues and is quite girlie. It is all machine quilted using quilt-as-you-go method. I have seamed up the back by hand and it just needs some borders, some final machine quilting, binding and a label and then it will be done.
The second quilt is all in homespuns and is mostly hand quilted using big stitch with size 12 perle. Like the other it needs borders and binding, but it will also get a bath in some dye to antique it. I have always wanted to try over-dyeing and this, I think, is a perfect chance to try it. Don't worry I will blog all about it..even if it is a disaster! :o) Here and here are a couple more posts about these quilts in the making.
Lastly I had to show you the latest dumpling bag I made...this time the larger size for our friend Miss B. These little bags are so much fun to make! Here's the link to the original pattern if you missed it the first time.
Until next time....
