I quilted the pink alternate blocks with a freehand feather. Which Gwen Marston showed me how to make these at her retreat I went to a few years ago. As soon as I have my quilt back I will take a close up picture of the quilting for you to see.
I'm very happy with the way how Quiltmania photographed my quilt for their magazine.
Phyllis asked me on which quilt is my applique block pinned. That is the backing of this 'blue quilt' (I'm not so good in naming my quilts.) I made it years ago. I still love it and I use it often on the couch. I love blue and white quilts. I'm working on this quilt. I am using two fabrics. All blocks the same blue and ecology cloth. Boring to sew but I know when it is finished it will be very decorative and very peaceful in my living room.
I found a nice border fabric in my stash. Because working on my blue and white quilt is a bit boring I started cutting and sewing htsts. Maybe it is becoming a king size quilt with hsts ?? I don't know. I just will start and will see what will to do with them.
I made from some left over yarn from my dish cloths these cute vintage coasters. They are so is so easy to crochet. Within a few minutes a coaster is finished. What a great 'take along project' for in your bag. Great for when you have a few minutes. Or just in front of the TV. A nice small project in between the bigger projects to actually finish, we all know some of these projects take a long time!
You can find the coaster pattern here. My next coaster will be made with red yarn and I also blue yarn leftover so I may have to make a blue one too..
I'm so in love with this fabric. It is for the backing of my quilt. It's so sweet. Even looking at it makes me smile. Can't wait to start hand quilting it :-)
I found two different pieces of batting in my closet which I bought years ago in the US. It is Mountain Mist cream rose and Quilter's dream cotton request. I have never used these batting before. Do you have experience with them? Which one do you like better? I would love to hear your opinion. The batting I usually use is 100% cotton from Hobbs/Tuscany.
Knitting feels to me like discovering a new world. This time I knitted a hat for my daughter. My other daughter likes it so much so right now I'm having another one on my needles.
And I finished my quilt. Yes! Right now I can't show you the whole thing. It is a little secret because Quiltmania is going to publish it. I don't know which issue but as soon as I know more I will let you know.
