Reverse applique love heart cushion

I have finally managed to find some time to get a little bit of sewing in. This is the third cushion in a set of 4 that I am making for a friend. Another new technique for me but I have posted previously about it. I have made a couple of these and made quite a few errors so this is the current incarnation of this design.
I do quite like this and think that I will make a lot more using this technique.


Ruby quilt

Made from a Moda Layer Cake “Ruby” . This is not finished yet cos I need to buy my wadding but I can get that easily tomorrow!
I was worried that the dusky pink would not look ok but I am pleasantly surprised but how right it does actually look and should learn to trust my instincts on my colour choices!
This measures 67.5 inches long (171cm long) and 37 inches (94 cm) wide and I am very pleased with it. I have managed to get over 90% of the lines straight which is a massive improvement for me. I really quite love this!!


I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas. I think I can genuinely say that this has been one of my best ever and hope it bodes well for the year ahead. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to you all for reading my little blog and wish you all a very happy, healthy and propserous 2012


My Latest Quilt

I have not made a quilt for ages. I have a few made but none of them are finished yet they need backing and binding I just don’t seem to have the guts to do it.

This is my latest design using a Moda layer cake called Ruby. I adore using layer cakes and charm packs, you have ready co-ordinated fabrics good to go and all you have to do is work out what one to put where!!!
