2015 Finish-Along - Q2 Goals - Completed






Yes - you read that correctly.  I have finished my Q2 Finish-along goals
  • One SWAK envelope top completed.  This top measures approximately 48" square.  I decided not to sash between the blocks, so that the bright jewel toned colours of the envelopes really popped against the scrappy low volume background.  A low volume border was added to frame them  Now, I just have to find the right backing fabric for it , then it will be ready to be quilted and bound. 
  • The wet weather we have been having has been perfect for sitting in my sewing room and getting stuck into quilting my Christmas place mats, a couple of hours later, they were done.  I even have the binding cut ready to make and attach for these.
So pleased to be able to cross these off my WIP list.  Now onto make something for a friend for her birthday, and start planning the Q3 list.

  11. Just discovered your blog and it's fabulous! Love the wonderful things you are making, and I love following other Kiwis. Are the Christmas placemats from a pattern or of your own devising? I've been thinking about making a Christmas quilt for ages but feel like it needs to reflect our Southern Hemisphere Christmas style.
