This is a little number I've been working on the past week or so using Amy Butler's Lark fabrics. I am absolutely loving this line and have purchased the green colour way as well...
Sorry about the photos by the way, I took them as I was running out the door this morning on my way to work. There was dappled sun shining through the trees above the courtyard.
Anyway, back to the blue Lark project...
I made nine patches and sewed them together. Then I added some natural coloured cotton / linen blend and appliquéd some leaves on.
Here's a close up of my "needle turn" appliqué, which I'm really happy with!
Obviously I will add the floral appliqué border around the whole quilt. Then I may add more borders, with the idea of making a medallion quilt, or I might just finish up with some binding. I haven't decided yet.
Something else I've been working on is a mini quilt for Michelle from The Quilted Tortoise.
She didn't receive a quilt in the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap, No.2 and I felt bad for her, so I offered to make her a little something, and she graciously offered to make me one in return!
Anyway, initially I was going to make her a little appliqué project, which didn't work out.
Then I started working on this:
I quilted it by hand, but then I didn't have any suitable material left to bind it with (I'd already started chopping the rest of the fabric up for the project above), so I started making a 36 patch in Liberties.
I finished that off (eventually!) and sent it off last week. Michelle has received it, but I am still waiting impatiently for my quilt from her. She sent it a week ago, but I think it must have got held up in the Christmas postal rush. I'm sorry, I forgot to take photos of the quilt I made for Michelle, so I will ask Michelle to send me some that I can post on my blog later.
Here is some more fabric I have procured lately....
Again, sorry about messy photos, but isn't this fat quarter bundle of Aunt Grace's latest offering just divine?!
And Heirloom (can't remember who designed this sorry):
And lastly, my little Love laying out a quilt in the courtyard this morning...
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!
