It is time to give you an update on the projects I have been working on.
First of all, I am working on a bit of a facelift (just a nip and tuck) for my blog. I have already added a page of Finished projects for 2013 and another page for the W.I.P.’s of this year. I would also like to change some of the pictures on the “header”, but that is a plan for later.
Secondly, I have added some FMQ to the “Growing blocks” quilt. This is what the back looks like now:
Just the left bottom corner needs some more FMQ and then some pebbling in another block centre.
These need to be changed into this:
And thirdly, I also have something new to share! My mother asked me to make little pillow for a friend of hers who has been having some medical problems with one of her feet. She can rest her foot on this pillow.
The request was to make it similar to this pattern we found online after googling “orange quilt” ( Yes I know, not a very inspiring search LOL Sometimes I just want someone else to think up an idea for me… ha ha!)
This gorgeous quilt pattern is called “the Tempest” and can be found on the Cherry House Quilts website.
The request was for a little pillow (13,5 inches square) so I drew up a paper piecing pattern to make sure I got exact blocks! There is a second request to make two more cushions with the same pattern. I will have to change the block size though. Some math ahead!
OK, here is the little orange cushion!
With of course an envelope style back… because I still don’t know how to do zippers, LOL!
I FMQ an organic design in each block. I am proud of how the binding turned out, just perfect!
See you Friday, boys and girls! Tomorrow I am off to Tongeren in Belgium with three friends! Going to see some “Roman and Etruscan stuff”
