Sew Sew Modern 5 - Sent
Now that my partner, Sara in the SSM5 Swap has received her parcel from me, I can finally reveal everything I sent her. The New York Beauty mini quilt, which was posted about over the last couple of months, was made up of four different blocks from these free patterns. I also included the cathedral window pincushion and made her a hot pad. It was the first time I had sewn with insulated batting before, but I am really pleased with how it turned out, especially all those tiny flying geese. Some beautiful shot ribbons, embroidery threads and zippers which co-ordinated with the items I had made, were sent as little extras. After I got home from the post office, I found the fabric covered 'to do" jotter pad I meant to send her too.
In these items I used a lot of fabrics from Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner, Julianna Horner, V & Co, Joel Dewberry, Zen Chic, Kaffe Fasset and Lizzy House. The beautiful amethyst coloured shot cotton was from Spotlight.
I loved how this mini turned out , and am really proud of myself for attempting these blocks. They were definitely some of the most challenging things I gave sewn. I will have to make myself one at some stage. Now I am eagerly awaiting the postie, to see what I receive.
