I'm back! Its been a really great few weeks off and I'm looking forward to sharing my latest work that I have on the go.
My Step-Sister Sherry of BS Crafts
and I have decided to start a Stitching Tuesday
weekly post about what stitching/embroidery projects that we are working on (even though we are three provinces away from each other!). I'm still starting out but I am really looking forward to working on some cute pillow cases and kitchen towels to give as gifts for friends and family at Christmas.
I haven't been able to work on too much lately but after making Miss S her Stitchy Squirrel mini quilt for her Kitty (or any small stuffed animal) Miss L rapidly began requesting a blankie for her dolls (or just for when she steals Miss S's kitty). I found a cute Unicorn transfer and have started to make Miss L's Unicorn Quilt:
I thought since it was a unicorn (and it has some ADORABLE rainbow fabric on the back that I forgot to take a picture of) that I could attempt to do a rainbow'esque boarder around the Unicorn. Its my first attempt at a long cabin type block and even though I didn't measure anything - just did the sew and slash method - it turned out really well. I still have to finish one row of hearts then put the binding on but progress is progress and I'll take it! ;)
I did some machine embroidery on Miss S' Squirrel quilt so I thought I could so something similar on this Unicorn quilt. After doing the first round with a random zig zag pattern I decided to outline each boarder with the heart stitch from my machine. It really girlies up the rainbow quilt and Miss L loves it!
Stitching Tuesday is in the books for this week - hopefully I will have more to show you next week.
Thanks for stopping by - see you soon!
