Penny's Quilt

 
I'm just back from my patchwork group meeting and had to share dear patchwork friend Penny's quilt.
Isn't it beautiful, all hand appliqué in the beautiful Japanese muted fabrics....Japanese designed.
Penny said it took her a year to complete....well worth all that amazing work...
Love it!

I haven't been very productive the last couple of weeks, just finishing off the binding on Beginners Luck...seems like I've been working on that forever...

Take care.....have a lovely stitching day...🌹

WIP....on mission to finish this quilt.

 
Inspired by the beautiful doily quilt my dear friend Lois finished recently, please scroll back a few posts and see how beautiful it is...a family heirloom.
I'm on a mission to get this one in progress finished. Mine will be all in creams and tea dyed laces and doilies.

 

I'm making this by the Quilt as You Go method.  So much easier to machine quilt blocks and panels than a whole big quilt.

Off to play, see how much I can get done today....I'm hoping Sweet Susie will be happy to play too.

Have a lovely day...🌹

Baby clothes

 
Taking a break from quilting to make a special little miss these girly pretties.
It's been a long time since I've made baby clothes.
Sure hope they fit....it's hard to judge the size.

 

I happened to have this cute bunny fabric....which I've lined with pink / white dot fabric....
 

Making it reversible..
Having fun....Now to see what else I can make !

Have a great day....🌹

Beginners Luck....been on a mission today!

   
So happy to have this pieced. I've been on a mission to make it a flimsy....8 hours work, done!
Deciding on the border was easy. I got a bit carried away when cutting the triangles for the blocks, there was enough for the saw tooth borders...yay...no waste. Too easy!

 
It's been a lot of work, but I'm happy how it's turned out.
Even CW fabrics can be bright and cheerful....

Been raining here all day....was nice being in my sewing room...
Take care.....🌹

Leftovers....maybe another's quilt!


                                Going through my many tubs of remnants from quilts made, I found these...
Seems such a waste to just discard them, so I'm thinking perhaps a quilt of all sorts, mug rugs or smaller runners.
Top paper piecing ones are CW fabrics and the rest are beautiful bright '30's....of which I don't have much left. They have been favourites of mine...trying hard this year to use what I have, as I'm sure many of you are too.

Can't believe it's the first day of autumn....what happened to summer. We really didn't have much of a summer like I remember.   

Have a lovely day...🌹
