Goodness, I feel like the number 7 bus: nothing for weeks then 3 posts in a row 🙂 🙂 🙂
I had to post again today after finding these wonderful coaster buddies in my mail box.
My uber talented swap partner from Canada mailed me my box of goodies back in August. I think you’ll agree they were certainly worth the wait 🙂
Decision made 🙂
I stepped outside my comfort zone, left behind my beloved blanket stitch and went for the naïve look.
It was surprisingly more tricky to do than I thought, but overall I’m quietly pleased with the results.
Take a look and let me know what you think….
Next to create the backs, maybe pinwheels, maybe…… oh the sweet agony of another creative decision 🙂
I don’t usually post up twice in one day, but I’m so happy to be back at my sewing machine trying out Vicki Ruebel’s Little Buddy Coasters for Michel Foster’s swap.
I’ve been messing about with different applique techniques and really cannot decide which one to do.
Take a peep and let me know which one you like best.
Enjoy, I certainly have 🙂
While you’re at it, why not check out Vicki’s blog? http://www.quiltinglodgeblog.com/
It’s time to share the love again!
Michele Foster aka Mishka is doing it again.
This time the swap is Little Buddy Coasters designed by Vicki Ruebel.
They are sew cute, how you could possibly resist them?
So all you quilters out there, if you fancy cooking up some cutesy little bug coasters, get yourself over to the quilting gallery to register for your pattern and get ready to have some fun!
After fighting off the flu I’ve finally completed the mini quilt.
Not sure I really want to give it away 😉
Anyway have a peep and see what you think.
By the way, if anyone knows how I can turn the photos round I’ll be very pleased to hear from you, save you and me breaking our necks…..
Following hard on the heels of the Mug Rug Swap I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into the next quilt swap.
If you are a quilter just starting out or a seasoned veteran, do join in and have a go and fun some fun. It’s a lovely way to make new friends.
I’ll be posting up pictures of my progress so watch this space.
