So, I can't believe I'm actually quilting HocusPocusVille, remember this quilt from a few years back? I've had the top done for ages...I LOVE how it finished. This is the original pattern front.
Here's what we did at Pastimes, we changed the layout by adding the orange floss and then repositioning the blocks so the stitcheries were the focus and the 9-patches were the borders...I've decided to quilt this immensly so it's taking a while. I picked stitches call "wormhole" and "mctavising" and "pumpkin patch". All of thse stithces are from Leah Day and her amazing guidance with her step by
step instructions and videos.
Plus outlining and surrounding all of the cool stitcheries to make it enhanced. it's coming along don't you think? Have you quilted yours yet? I've seen Jen's and it's stunning and inspirational, to say the least.
Well it has been a while since I've posted an update of London for my loyal readers and friends...here we are spending the day in Banff...we had a fabulous time with Jeff..walking around in the wintery air...how absolutely delightful.
If you're looking for a stitching project that is a) pre-printed - so no tracing involved and b) using one colour of floss and c) only a few months long..then Scandinavian Rose is for you. Come join the fun of Scandinavian Rose today. You get to pick YOUR colour-way, so it's unique to YOU!
Fabrics...hmm not sure about the stripe but this little skirt is a cutie! Needs to be done for her Santa visit on Saturday. Just putting on the waistband. I wanted red dots for Christmas.
Suggestions for the top, colours, plain maybe with the polka dot fabric for trim?
