Addictive paper piecing. This gorgeous paper pieced cushion made by Kara from MonaLuna's Taali range, together with a few well chosen complimentary fabrics! I just love the fussy cutting drawing attention to the little features in the fabric. Lots of fun.
I have long been a fan of Kellie Wulfsohn's pattern "Memories". Kellie's from Don't Look Now and here's her Joslind tree...
This is one of 3 similar sized designs in the pattern which can be interchangably stitched as cushions or wall hangings so the pattern is great value and the projects are achievable - always essential! Here's Kellie's Family Tree....
So I finally bit the bullet and made the third of these projects (see below) for the upcoming quilt show made from one of my kits. This one is called "Memories".
This one is destined for a picture frame - but to quilt the background or not is the question. I have to cut it to size to fit it in the frame - so I can't quilt it once it's gone in the frame.... What a dilemma!
I think it's pretty stunning either way - but the dense quilting in the background is kind of addictive!!
Have you yet been tempted by Vignette? This is an amazing magazine for patchwork and stitching enthusiasts and has been very popular. It's by Australian designer Leanne Beasley who has a talent for making it all too appealing.
Easy to read, beautifully photographed, with great ideas for small (and large) projects.
Vignettes 1 to 9 feature the Vignette in Stitches Quilt and Vignette 10 will be out at the end of April.
All issues still available through my website and at the AQC
I just found this blog post sitting in my drafts - but thought as we have the AQC coming it that it is a good taste of things to come... in April.
I was very lucky to be able to borrow Kellie Wulfsohn from Don't Look Now's new quilt "Jessie" which had everyone's jaw dropping and was a real star of the stand. Its pictured here on the wall to the right. Hopefully this beauty will be at the AQC with me too as well as some other stunning things to see.
The bunting was also really popular and is one of my favourites - a great one for football fans.
