Current Quilt Project– { SHINE }

 

This is the current quilt I am working on.

Below is my EQ6 design.

Shine

I was aiming for a girlie look and originally was going to do handbags, but then it sort of morphed into lanterns.

I finished the border first as it was so complicated. Now I’m working on the lanterns for the centre using floral, fairy frost, and hand dyes.

The look I’m going for lanterns hanging in a garden at dusk – can you get my vision?

I’m not sure I like it… it seems a bit fussy and busy. But wait till it comes together at the end as it may yet work.

I have also just finished 1/2 a dozen dog coats, one each for Georgie Girl, Alfie, Millie & Maya (cash cow coats). And two coats to donate to Doggie Rescue.

ALSO

The first and largest of the ‘Under Pressure’ quilt ~~ top is finished and waiting for me to find a new quilter.

The V&A top is also finished and ditto as above.

Next project is SHEEP soft toys, using the Melly & Me ‘Black Sheep, White sheep’ pattern.

I think my sheep will be grey sheep cream sheep… I have bought some nice fabric that looks like knitting,,, see below… OH, I know.. I’ll call mine  ‘Knit sheep, Purl sheep’…!!
