Are you having a sewing Saturday? I've been stitching the scalloped borders on my "Happy Stitcher" wallhanging. This will be spray basted and machine quilted very simply, just stitch-in-the-ditch. This pattern is by the Australian designer Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse Patchwork Designs and is available from Cross Patch in Wales...
...the fabrics for this are leftovers from my Hearts and Happy Hearts quilt, and are mostly from the Katie Jane collection by Makower UK. The hand embroidery is stitched using Cosmo stranded embroidery threads, and the applique has been completed using the Apliquik method. Once the quilting has been completed, I'll applique this little group of hexies into place. I made a few extras, and these will be used to embellish a small label for the back of the wallhanging.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
