Wow my Farmers wife quilt was started in November 2011 - Last night I pinned it all ready to begin the quilting process. I feel so liberated knowing it's almost done.
I plan to just quilt in the ditch around each block to make them stand out. Nice and simple as its huge and I only have a domestic sewing machine.
Today I also finished the snapshots quilt flimsy, done as an online BOM and as a sew along via Facebook. It certainly helped me stay on track. I have really enjoyed making these fun blocks the car is my favourite and I can see a whole quilt of them in my future.
My first finish for 2016 was turning a sashiko stitchery into something. I purchased this pattern in a trip to Hawaii last August and stitched it during the plane ride home. The turtle fabric was from some fat quarters that I also picked up in Hawaii.
It makes a nice cushion to decorate my outdoor furniture.
Other finishes in the second half of 2015 are
Fox garden, a Christmas gift for my granddaughter Willow.
Great granny squared
Little red baskets from block swaps collected in 2013
Earlier I mentioned a trip to Hawaii, so I will end this post with a picture of me taken after I had swam under a waterfall on the big Island near Hilo. A highlight of the trip.
Quilted hugs and Happy New years, Sue x
