I have entered my Dresden Fan in the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Dresden Challenge so have a look at all the lovely quilts that have been entered. Mine was made using fabric I bought at the Scottish Quilt Show in Edinburgh in February from CraftsandQuilts of Southport. I love their stall at the shows and they were at Harrogate last weekend and are now doing ready-cut binding and sashing packs. These are a great idea and I bought some to use on the large embroidered quilt I am making at the moment- more of this later.
I love they way this has turned out using the EZ Dresden Ruler and I added a wavy border as a final finish.
This quilt is for a charity raffle later this year. I loved the colours and prints of the fabrics in the fabric roll I used.
My other finish is my flannel Crochet Fusion Blanket which is double sided and will make a nice present for the next baby that comes along ! This will also be a good project to use up some of my Liberty Fabrics as you don't need very large pieces and I enjoy the crocheting whilst watching tv.
I have recieved another package from Melanie in the Santa Sack Swop - the xmas tag is just beatiful. So that is two more surprise parcels for my sack.
I have entered another of Cheryll's(Gone Stitchin) swops -this one is a black and white bag. I am posting only a sneak preview of the one I have finished for Naomi - it will be posted to her this weekend so I don't want to spoil it for her.
Ongoing projects now include a BaliPop 9 patch which I have just started and which I am planning on making quite large as I had two packs of Balipops and I have wanted to start this for a while. It is from an advert in an amercan magazine so I have made up the pattern as best I can- it will have plain blocks in between. It is a good project for taking to the Mowbray Quilters group.
My other big project is coming along quite well - the medallion embroidered quilt. The centre embroidered panel is done and I have started the candlewick blocks for the next round. At the moment it is manageable but it will cause a few headaches I'm sure as it will be 105" sqaure when it is finished. I am using the quilt as you go method to try and make it less stressful.
