Hi I have finished the white on white quilt.

I have made all my mystery quilt blocks and made 1cm x 1cm paper squares with the patterns on them. This will allow me to plan my layout.

I've got the last 2 blocks to make for the mystery quilt. I am not sure on my fabric choice for the 4 patch and may change it if it doesn't work in the final setting.

I don't work in the methodical way that you do, so thanks for the tip for a paper grid layout. I was wondering on the best way to do that. I will hopefully be going for a 'modern' layout.

Have fun planning your layout.

Margaret

Not so tickled pinkHere’s my latest project made during lockdown. It’s from a pattern called “ Tickled Pink wall hanging” from feb 2015 issue. I used lots of batik scraps and a piece of white sheeting fabric. Obviously with no shops open I’ve had to make do with what I had in. It’s also my first attempt at hand or big stitch quilting. You might notice that it’s not quite finished that’s because I’ve strained my wrist holding the quilting ring for so long and I’m having to give it a rest for a few days .

Peg bag 2Makeup / toiletries bagsMore “ lockdown” sewing. Another couple of peg bags for some friends. Made from old jeans. No one throws jeans in the bin in my family 😂

Also, a few make up / toiletries bags. Just because I enjoyed making them and also as they come in handy for gifts with a couple of treats inside.Peg bag 2 front

Good fun projects Steph, lovely.

Don't think I commented on your post on this screen either Eileen. Your white on white is looking great.

Your quilt is my favourite colour palette, Steph. I can't get on with a hoop, my fingers are not agile enough. At present, the hot weather has made my arthritis flare up big time. My right hand is sore, but working, my left thumb hurts and my left foot has got gout, but at least I can keep on quilting - slowly.

Love your peg bag. I really want to make one of those.

I added a lot more stitching, learning as I go. Sometimes with a hoop sometimes not. I’ve bought some different needles for next time. Oh it will be nice when all the shops open again, I’ve e been trying to find a quilt hanger for this one but no one online seems to have one the right size that would look right next to my others on the wall in my sewing room So I’ve cobbled one together with a couple of bits of dowel and a coat hanger - it’ll do for now 😀. It?s finished,

Lovely, Steph. As I said before, it's my favourite colour combination. It always 'pops'. Well done.

Margaret
