I had a lovely surprise this week to get another parcel from Martina in Germany. This gorgeous card accompanied the latest issue of their patchwork magazine, some pretty buttons and beautiful rose fabric. I was so excited when I found a parcel in the post I couldn't wait to open it. I think this card is a beautiful picture and would make a lovely quilt... or another UFO??. Or maybe I should just frame it haha. Thank you Martina.
|Lovely tree quilt in magazine.|
|Owls.. and circular too.. Owls seem to be all -in-fashion with quilting fabric!|
|Now this is stunning and a must do.. I love the red. so warm and vibrant. Red appears to be the 'in' colour this year in decorating and fashion.|
|My scraps.. remember the green I posted before... I have yet to make the tree from the brown with a little sunlight in behind it... and the blue bird in the tree.|
|But here I have quilted leaves.. It's a multi coloured green and silver thread but doesn't show up well in the photo. I'm going to cut the leaves out to put on the tree.|
Today I went to the first class of Sheryl Anacich's Strawberry Fields. We made the top for the quilt today. I was amazed to get it finished in one day and I'm really happy with the result.
At the next class we quilt it and then in July we make flowers as on this one below and quilt them onto the top. I will be making some of my flowers in plainer fabrics to go on the flowery blocks. This quilt was all out of my stash except 2 pieces which altogther cost $15.00. I really enjoyed the class with Sheryl. And to top it all Sheryl's mum made beautiful scones with home made strawberry jam and cream for morning tea... Diet gone again!
