This fabulous kit and caboodle was sent to me by my amazing Make Mine Modern partner Candi of Raccoon Creek Quilts I have to admit to wanting Carly to come and live with me as soon as I came across her photo in the Flickr pool - And guess what...SHE DID :) she brought some friends with her, the Far Far away 3 gang came along to keep her company as did some amazing grumpy owls! I feel utterly spoilt rotten :) Thank you bucket loads Candi!
As a side note Carly is now living on the wall above my sewing machine, I will post pics once I have cleaned up the sewing room :)
I have been making things this week not just receiving great prezzies
So far we have 3 new cushion covers (envelope backs as the fear of zippers is still prevalent here)
This is my first attempt at paper piecing and if any of you have any thoughts on fabric conservation please do let me know. I swear our great grandmothers whilst making do and mending did not quilt like this, I have a pile of scraps like no ones business after just one block!
Next on the list is this Quilt as you go cushion made with some Joel Dewberry prints, I enjoyed this and it was really quick to put together.
Last cushion of the day is a bento block cushion (by this point I thought well why not!)
Super densely quilted, two bobbins worth of thread went into this bad boy!
Next up is some fun Decoupage, this lot took an evening and was great fun to put together.
I'm loving the photo frame sooo much :)
Lastly is my lazy girl quilt so named as I didn't do a pick of piecing in it, I found the fabric at Ikea and loved it to bits. I couldn't face cutting it up and felt it was too pretty to be a backing so hey presto instant quilt top, cheeky I know but I love it.
Straight line quilted and the binding is a Kona colour but if I'm honest I don't know which one (I know not very helpful Sorry!)
Hope you guys enjoyed having a look at this weeks blog offerings and manage to fit some sewing time in this week :)
