Update on latest sticthing

Hi everyone,
its been a while again. I have been stitching ornies and miniatures, here are some to show.






This is a 1:12 scale miniature embroidery. Its for the Mediterranean house, more details on my miniature blog. I also have been working on some WIP mentioned before in this blog. But as I have spread myself over so many hobbies, I am a bit slow in producing things but at least I never get bored, lol!
I will have more pictures up very soon as I have a couple more ornaments  done but no pictures yet.

new blocks from magazine series

Added two more, but had to change the fabric on the second one  as I didnt get it right the first time :)

Sailboat block

Shoo-fly Block also known as Puss-in-the-corner or Kitten-in-the-corner

I also learned how important it is to iron the seams the correct direction. The block lies very flat.

Alex's Quilt progress



I have finished 5 rows of  4 blocks so far, just designed the pattern for the border on graph paper
Learning loads with this project.The blocks are 9 inches squared. I am using foundation piecing method, but find lots of fabric is wasted especially on making some of the triangular parts.

Update on projects

These are some of the fabrics that will be in Alex's quilt, she loves turquise so will add two fabrics in that colour, also black to emphasize the colours.

These will be in the center of the block, they are 3 inches, the block will be 9 inches. I fussy cut the centers.
Here you can see the turquise and black fabric.


This is Sonya's quilt, I decided on this pattern, with white borders, more pics coming soon as I have added more hexagons to it since the photo.

Kathryn's Quilt finished!!!!!!




I could only manage straight lines with the sewing machine. I would like to try hand quilting next, perhaps on the hexagon quilt for Sonya.

New Block Double Four patch

I tried this block today from a quilt magazine series.
some mistakes.....
I plan to redo it with other fabric, maybe it will be better the second time around.

A quilt for my daughter



This is the second quilt I am working on for one of my daughters. I am making 1 quilt for each of my children ( 3 girls and a boy)/ The first one is for Kathryn ( its in the quilting stage now) , The second one is using the hexagon shape to paper piece a quilt for Sonya, here are pictured some basted. I love that this quilt can be taken with me to work on when I take the kids to their activities.

Dresden Block



I made this dresden block using the dresden ruler I mentioned in a previous post , pictured you can see more blades cut for a second one. I am planning to make pillows out of both. I need to make the centers and choose the backing fabric.
