This was our class sample. We are making the EPP pattern and the cushion cover ( just an envelope closure so nothing too hard). This week the ladies are choosing their fabrics they would like to use to make their cushion. I can't wait to see what they all choose!
I hand quilted my cushion because this will eventually be in my house and I wanted to have at least one hand quilted cushion.
I have also been doing a wee embroidery project in the evening just to relax and take my mind off things in the news and the lead up to my first wee class. This pattern is from Urban Threads. I am still unsure about Mr Bee's metallic eyes but the kids like them so they will probably stay!
A wee tip for metallic dmc embroidery floss - use shorter lengths than normal as it does begin to wear quite quickly going in and out the fabric.
I have two bee blocks to make for the Hipbees as soon as I can also. The lovely Fiona sent this gorgeous Amy Butler fabric and has given us freedom of choice to make our own 12.5 inch block! I love the greens in these fabrics so much! It will make a beautiful quilt!
Sarah from Sew Me sent gorgeous fabric to make concentric square blocks. Love the teapots and can't wait to get started on these!
Time for my second cup of tea of the morning! Have a great weekend everyone.
