We're back from our summer break, and lots of sewing has been happening. It has been too, too hot (when we're not having storms!) for much in the way of finishing quilts, but we will be ready for the cooler weather when it comes!
|Adrienne pulled out an older unfinished project to work on - it |
is tiny and exquisite, currently about the size of an A4 sheet of
paper, foundation pieced. Those tiny columns of flying geese
at top left are the borders - there is one more to make, and
Adrienne hopes the construction method comes back to her soon!
From a pattern by Anne Sommerlad Designs.
Here are the measurements for the curious:
Size of quilt now - 13 1/2" x 11 1/2”
Flying geese borders 1 1/2”
Small blocks are 2” square
3rd border cut 1 1/2” so will end up 1”
Finished size 15 1/2” x 18”
(Sue H's version of this same design appeared in this post from two years ago)
|Daphne is pondering a border for her disappearing four |
patch community quilt - it looks so crisp and summery!
|Daphne also tackled her batik stash to produce these bright |
and happy improv square-in-a-square blocks - and made
no dent in it at all, she says!
|300 small red yo-yos (Suffolk Puffs) have been keeping |
|Sue's sewing machine is thoughtfully placed very close |
to the air-conditioning outlet in her sewing room, so she
happy to add the side borders to her jelly roll quilt, and
has pattern-matched the backing ready for it to be quilted.
