Friday Nite Sew-In


Is it any wonder that I have lots of projects on the go at the moment.....I don't think I am so different to many of the crafters out there,  so it's not hard to pick a project for this Friday night sew-in and  I'm doing some hand quilting on my new table runner.

 



I wanted something bright and cheerful for the dining table and lots of houses seemed just about right.

These sweet homes come from A Scrapbook of Quilts by Joanna Figueroa & Carrie Nelson. As soon as I saw those Quilts, Cushions, Runners and Pin Cushions I knew that book was for me. 

I have already made a cushion and I love the bright colours using some of the fabrics used in the book.

The quilting is a mixture of machine and hand as I wanted to do inside the windows by hand to make them stand out. I think I'll also do some swirls in the trees.......not sure yet!

It's still warm on most days here is the tropics so having this much bulk on your lap can become uncomfortable and sometimes I take it outside to stitch, and while it is nice and cool and there is perfect light, it does have it's disadvantages.


 

Can't wait to see what everyone else is doing on the sew-in.

  5. How lovely - I'm a bit of a sucker when it comes to houses (and trees) too. I don't know how you could quilt living up north! but good that you can.
