I received my last bee block from the lovely Fiona at Sew Fi. It is lovely isn't it? Now to think about putting all my beauties together!
I have almost finished my baby quilt for my shop. I really hummed and hawed about how to quilt this one. I begun hand quilting in a lovely blue and then pink but nope, it just wasn't right. I tried following the curves of the peels but again it just didn't look right.
So thanks be to the wonders of Instagram and helpful friends. Lynne (Lily's Quilts) suggested diagonal crosshatching. I marked it out and thought yes let's do it! Oh and quilted with the stunning Aurifil which really makes quilting enjoyable. That and lovely wadding!
I LOVE it!
Now I can't decide on binding, lol!
love the back!
Simpatico straws mint or golden both match the yellows and blues in the quilt arggh!
And I have just about finished the binding on my wee table runner for the shop too! I totally love this as well. The colours, the yarn dyed linen the quilting.
Such a good feeling to be almost finished some things isn't it?? Then I get to do it all again!!!!
