As you can see from my previous post, I have been a very good girl and finished lots of things recently. I've also got a bit addicted to mini quilts, so what have I been playing with this week?
I showed you the first block of my nested church dash quilt - there will be nothing mini about this once I'm finished. I've put together another block and cut two more. I had some tension issues on my machine which led to partial unpicking once the whole was pieced, hence the slight wonkiness...
It's been ages since I bought the Tula Pink Modern Alphabet pattern, and finally I've made a start. My green solids were recently boosted by a little Instagram purchase from Lily's Quilts, so I went for it, but I'm doing it half size to make a mini quilt, rather than full size. I'm really looking forward to quilting this one.
Debbie has started a Post Card Quilt Along and I was totally up for using some of my texty fabrics. Unfortunately I have no "post card" picture fabric. Instead I went for Kona solids. I pieced this today and I know what I'd like to do for the quilting, but I'm not sure ability will meet expectations...
This afternoon I've cut some squares to make hexies so I can shamelessly copy Megan. I wasn't sure whether I loved her mini quilt because of the fabric or the technique. I pulled out some mini charm packs which would be perfect and I liked how it would look, but in the end it had to be my Architextures and Botanics fabrics!
My Tula Pink cushion is now sashed. I started quilting on my new machine, but I've unpicked it. I wasn't happy.
Did I mention a new machine? Oops. Yep - I bought a Brother NX2000 (The Laura Ashley one). I think it's going to take some getting use to.
