Brrr it's chilly here today - Winter is nipping at the door so the most sensible thing to do today is to stay home and sew don't you think? I am happy to be able to show you my finished Happy Happy Garden.
I am pretty pleased with it and it is already on it's way to be quilted along with my 2 friends quilts who have made their own version of it too - Once they are all quilted and bound I will show you all 3 versions.
My sewing group and I decided it would be lots of fun if we worked on the same project. It is a wonderful motivator that's for sure and lots of fun to show each other our progress every week.
All 3 quilts look so different as we all incorporated our own personal preferences into our own quilts.
We packed them all up into a box together and sent them over to Dawn who offers a $50 quilting service. Dawn has done a number of my quilts now and they always look great - She has my "Brick" quilt on her frame at the moment so I am pretty excited to be getting that back soon.
Our next quilt to tackle is "Jitterbug". We have all chosen very different colours for our quilt and each chose a jellyroll from Jane who offers a great service. We ordered them at our Tuesday night sewing session and they were on my door step by Thursday monring - Wonderful service !
During the week I had chosen the jelly roll strips for my quilt
and sewed them together
Aren't they pretty?
And chopped them up ready for the front piecing of the quilt. There is lots of hand applique in this one too.
And the added bonus is that I have a whole stack of strip ends to play with too - I wonder what I can make with this lot?
I hope you have a relaxing Saturday and find some time to craft.
