When I saw this book on someone's blog I wanted it.. DS#1 Asked what I'd like for Christmas and I said this book, 'Quilty Fun,' by Lori Holt.
Now that I have had time to really look through it, it is even better than I had envisioned. Tons of great information, tips, patterns and loads of Lori’s fabulousness all wrapped up in a spiral bound book. Every quilt in here is my favourite and the best part is , its written in a way that makes it easy for you to make your own layout with all of the designs
I would like to make this quilt with the panels of tulips and this book has this quilt in it.
I can't wait to start looking for fabric, I love the bright colours and it would be our summer quilt.
My Christmas round table cloth has been more difficult that I anticipated but here it is finished..
Not on the little round table it is meant for as that only comes out at Christmas.
So here it is on the little hall table just to show it's finished.
And three little fan purses for friends
These are so simple to do although quite a lot of work as they are quilted, lined and have a zip.
It is a great way to use up scraps of fabric.
I think I am having a rest from sewing for a while and shall be cross stitching. I have got quite a few WIPs.
1. Cut thro Beach Hut
2. Fairies at the bottom of our garden
3. Welcome design with a Cat
4. Number 5 of AOH
5. Convent Herbal Garden, Chatelaine
So I shall be rotating these, perhaps each one for a week, rather than for two evenings.
What do you do when you rotate projects? Any suggestions?
