Over the past few evenings, Ive been stitching another small project - Grandma's Needle Book. This pattern is by the Australian designer Lynette Anderson Designs and is available as a PDF download from her online shop, Little Quilt Store. I've made this using scraps of fabrics also designed by Lynette. It has been hand embroidered with a selection of variegated Valdani perle threads, and hand appliqued using the Apliquick method...
...inside there are useful pockets for packets of hand sewing needles, a couple of wool felt pages for needles and pins, and a useful clip for attaching my scissors so they don't get lost! The vintage lace trimming has been embellished with a few hand stitched colonial knots.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
