The Sweet Peas have been doing:
Debbie has been busy quilting her Solid Stars and Strings. Pretty cool quilting!
Moira had her wee Grand daughter to stay. They decided to work on a craft project together, a country style wall hanging featuring hens.Shania obviously thought Nana’s hens were pretty exotic, look at the colour she picked for the eggs!!
Now I did some research about eggs colours and I reckon Nana’s hens are Easter Eggers
Easter Egger, Ameraucana, and Araucana breeds, will lay eggs in colours ranging from khaki green to sky blue, to pink tinted, to occasionally lavender tinted.
Rochelle has made some Christmas table mats:
Theses mats have a secret feature, she has made sleeve so a solid table mat can slide inside to give the mat stability:
Isn’t that clever?
That wasn’t enough though, she went on to make a quilt top with the same style of fabrics:
Look at this little cute topsy turvy block.
I have been to a Trapunto class, this is the piece I made. I am glad I have learnt this technique – but I don’t know that I would be in a hurry to do more.
About 15 years ago I decided to teach myself how to do freezer paper applique. Like most people I started with a nice soft heart. I had some pansy fabric so I appliqued a pansy heart onto a calico block:
Don’t you just love those Hoffman Pansy fabrics? I wish they still made them.Of course one was not enough so with nine patches added a very pretty little quilt – only 15 years in the making!
This one’s for me!
We also had a little session learning how to make Dream Balls.
I know, I know ages ago I promised to show you how to make these. I’ll get onto it.
Thanks for popping by.
