My latest project is completed! Little Winter Wonderland, designed by Lynette Anderson Designs, was bought as a kit from Cross Patch - my favourite online quilting shop! The kit included the pattern, fabrics (also designed by Lynette, these are from her Frosty Friends collection), and hand painted wooden reindeer buttons. As you can see, the centre square is hand embroidered (I used Valdani variegated threads for this) and hand appliqued (my favourite method of hand applique is using applique paper and Apliquick tools). This was machine pieced, and then machine quilted very simply. Finally I used a single fold binding and the scalloped tabs were hand stitched in place on the back of this small quilt. I'd stitched a small sleeve on the back of the quilt, so it could slip onto a free-standing small quilt hanger.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
