My one and only granddaughter whose name is Olivia received her quilt on her birthday last week. Yay, I wasn't late .. again!! This was a quilt as you go class with Sandra Kennington that I went too last year. Some of the fabrics are from the Olivia the Pig range (there are several books about Olivia). It was really easy to do and quite effective. The binding fabric is the same as on the wallhanging. OLIVIA.
I was going to make it a quillow but as usual I stuffed up the measurements so on the night before I made this into a wallhanging to put in her bedroom.
And what do you hang it on at the last minute. Why, knitting needles that I haven't used for donkey's years...hehehe
I even had a go at free motion quilting and sewed wonky hearts all around the pigs... There were a few 'oops' neatly covered by buttons but I was amazed how well I did for the first time.
During the week I had a play with scraps pieces to make something for a friend. I sewed them on throush batting and backing and then made a few rows of fancy stitches in metallic threads. Not sure what I"ll do now but I love the colours.
