Well I can now show you the quilt I did last weekend , as it has arrived at its final destination. I tired so hard to get it completed before my sisters birthday and in fairness the top was completed awhile ago. I just found it hard to get the quilting done as I wanted to do something special but decided in the end just to do a edge to edge. I am still happy with the end result and I know that my sister loves it . The quilt is called " Sugar Plum Stars by Cheryl Malkowski ", it features the Tonga Treats range .It was a lovely quilt to make and I would love to do it again but maybe blues and whites next time .
I quilted Dazzel on it which is a great design and I love the way it creates a secondary design that form circles.
Sorry the picture doesn't show it to well.
This week I set my self a challenge and I have till the end of the year to complete it . The challenge is to make a scrap quilt, from the box that has grown with every completed project . Now I don't know if any one else is as messy as me but I have to say when I complete a project the left overs where just get dropped into well a paper bag to start of with and now that is full ,a small box.
The bursting at the sides scrap box and magazine with some great ideas
Now I love to look at other peoples scrappy quilts and think they are so cleaver for having made them, but when it comes time to making them I get very nerves as I panic about the colours and fabrics working together. So my challenge is to make a scrappy quilt using only and I mean only what is in the box. I have spent the past few days cutting and trying hard not to think about the colours and on more than one occasion I have be firm with my self and not go to the rest of my fabric stash to add to it . I will keep you posted with how the challenge is going and if any one else would like to join me in this challenge , drop us a email would love to hear from you. Have a great week and happy sewing , I am of to do some more cutting .
