I know I shouldn’t but this sounds like fun so I’m going to go for it anyway.
Le Challenge is set up by Lucy of Charm About You and Nat of Made In Home. On the fifteenth of every month an inspirational challenge is set and you have one month to hand in your ‘homework’. The best thing is that any craft will do, no restrictions, just let your creative juices flow.
If you want to join or get more info on Le Challenge check out their blog. See you there?!
“You spin me right round, baby, right round, like a record, baby, right round, round, round.” Do you remember that song? It’s one of my favourites.
It inspired me to make this block.
Which I then turned into this cushion.
Which gives me another tick on my 2013 FAL list. Go Girl!
Wishing everyone who’s celebrating it this Sunday a very
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
This is the card I received from Little Miss Bossy-Boots. Love it! The teachers did a great job helping the children. I think it’s beautiful and am going to get it framed.
I’ve finished my Pantone 2013: Emerald Quilt Challenge mini quilt and I’m very happy with it.
As it’s name Réalt Glas means Green Star in Gaelic, I decided to quilt some wandering clover on the grey Essex linen. It’s not my first time free motion quilting but it’s still rather wobbly and I realise that I have to practice a lot more. I used the same grey Aurifil 50wt (2605) that I used for piecing.
Except for the centre, the star (stars?) itself isn’t quilted. I did stitch in the ditch around the grey pieces but left the green pieces alone. I could tell you it was because I wanted them to stand out but in reality it’s because the inner star was too pouffy and I was worried that I would have lots of little pleats if I quilted it.
The pattern tweaking is still going on for this but I should be finished by this weekend. All I need then is a little help from Master to turn it into a PDF file.
