I finally had a couple of big finishes this week. First up was my lap sized Scrap Dance Tango Mystery Quilt. You can see more details about it in an earlier post.
Next was my Butterfly Garden Quilt. I also posted about it in my last post.
To celebrate two finishes, I treated myself to starting on this. It is a Frivol kit, Kindred, using Bonnie and Camille's Hello Darling fabric. I am pleased with the light gray background. Now I am trying to decide if I want to make a scrappy border and part with my precious scraps or just get some Hello Darling yardage. Right now the top is 40 inches square and I want it bigger to use as a baby quilt. I think bigger is better.
I completed Clue 3 for Butterfly Threads 2016 Mystery Quilt. More info can be found here:
I love digging in my stash to make a quilt!
My mom and I got together to make Watcha Got Bags, a pattern from This and That. I made a bunch last summer as retreat gifts and my mom is making them for Xmas presents. I really like how this one turned out! I used a Sunnyside Kate Spain mini charm pack to make it. It is modern and fresh.
For this one, I used a mini charm pack of Chance of Flowers by Sandy Gervais. They are both so cheerful and are great for projects or to use as gifts.
I have been trying to do handwork in the morning before it is too hot. I am making progress on quilting my Love Blooms Here Quilt--I am half way done with the biggest block and have two thirds of the blocks done.
I am using perle cotton and chunky stitches. I think it compliments the primitive wool felt appliqué. I will get some stitches in for Slow Sunday Stitching. Check out other handwork inspiration here:
