I have just finished the next block in the Stitch A Long. It’s Kitchen Sink Camel. I like the colors in it and the use of the metalic threads brighten it up more. I haven’t added the tassels along the reins but I will add it shortly. Amazingly it didn’t take it too long to do this one.
Well it is finished – the first block in the Stich A Long called Long time ago in Bethleham. I think it came up very well. I like the back ground fabric as it works well with the colors. I am now starting on the next wone which is called Kitchen sink camel. I can’t wait till it is also finished as it has some very nice colors and interesting parts to it.
Have you heard of the term SAL? Well I hadn’t until I picked the christmas edition of Homespun. Well while I was reading it, I found a lovely design that I liked. So I slowly brought the fabric which was Moda Primative Gathering. The pattern suggests white but I like the colors in Moda Primative Gathering as it looks like what the colors would be in the desert. Then I got the cottons and cut out the first fabric and traced the pattern out and started to create the new pattern. I’m a block behind and it is looking good. It is called Long time ago in Bethleham but as I am sewing it I keep thinking of Bone M song.
This is the third block in Christmas In Italy. I love the fabrics which are Sentimental from Three Sisters. I still two blocks behind but will easily catch up. What I like is the fact that the lines are not exact but very rustic – I guess like the house would be like in Italy. I have seen the one being done at The Christmas Beetle and I love how we have used different colours. They should both look beautiful when finished….happy stitching.
I entered a competition at The Christmas Beetle and the prize was Lynette Anderson’s Scandinavian Christmas. I was really happy as I have being eye this one of for a while. So the start for the fabric began and I found a shop called Whatever Whereever not far from me that had the range of the fabric. Now to start this pattern….
When I heard about this quilt, I really wanted to create it. The challenge was that it is a mystery quilt so I don’t know what I am doing next. I love Lynette Anderson’s quilts, and after starting this one I brought another one which is called Christmas Fun (yes another christmas quilt). I have only done 2 blocks at the moment, but isn’t that what happens with quilting – you start a project and interchange with another project. Above is block 2 called Forest Floor – it has a squirel button to be put on it but I haven’t add the buttons yet as I will add them when finished. And below is The Dell – this one has the a bird button to be placed on it
