Nothing says 1st May like Morris Dancers!
Back to the sewing....
|My April completions|
Farmer's Wife: I bought some more batiks, including the gorgeous turquoise in the Spider Web Block. I have 81 blocks complete now, and I really want to push on with this project. I've seen some finished ones popping up and some gorgeous quilting, like this one.
Stained QAL: I signed up for this QAL months ago, and finally at Easter had the time to do all the cutting. It went together really quickly after that and I love how bright it is. In May I need to add a chunky black border and quilt it - I'm going for organic straight lines (read "wavy").
Cushions: I've completed three cushion covers this month: A nice red one with half square triangles using up the leftovers from my Swoon and some dense straight-line quilting; a rainbow Swoon variation for my first ever Swap; and an Owl applique. And with the leftovers from my mini Swoons I made alittle mug rug in blues and browns.
And I stitched a lot of blocks: for my first ever month in a Bee, for the Siblings Together charity, and for my Amelia quilt.
Yesterday I got a parcel in the mail from America. It was my swap goodies. Look what I got:
And I won $25 voucher for the Fat Quarter Shop for my Chevron cushion which I entered in the Festival of Half Square Triangles over at Canoe Rudge Creations. Hmm.... what to buy!
For May I want to finish the Amelia quilt, and quilt some of the quilt tops that I've finished piecing, so hopefully I'll have lots more to share in the next few weeks.
Today I'm linking up to Lily' Quilts Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet
