So far so good. I started quiltober a little early (last month) by getting going on hand quilting my Sweet nostalgia stitchery blocks. There were 5 to go at the start of October and they are now done! I popped the quilt in the wash last night in the hope of getting out a nasty stain on one of the stitchery blocks. It didn't work so some extra embroidered leaves have solved that problem.
The christening quilt is done and I am so happy with the result. I just love looking at it and I know it will be well loved. Bliss fabrics are just so beautiful!
Two Christmas mats got quilted this week and they just can't wait for the 25th to be shown off. Hopefully the binding will be on by then though. They were the patterns I received from Michelle as a giveaway on her blog.
The next big quilting project will be to get some more rows done on my Hexie flower garden quilt. I have quilted two rows so far. I don't even want to count how many to go....... slowly, slowly!
So roll on the photos...
I found the gorgeous backing fabric at Spotlight, it was the last metre on the bolt. I so wish there had been more.... It is so sweet.
Here are my mats.
(this one needs to be sewn and quilted but just wanted to show it as well)
While at spotlight I also spotted this lovely christmas print.... Guess what I have in store for this, a hint: there will be some fussy cutting...
sorry for the pic heavy post just love to look at all that bliss!
Anyone else up for Quiltober?
