Solstice Dreaming

Janine's is on the left, mine is on the right.

Seven months and 10 days after I started the first stitch of my Solstice Dreams project, I have finished it.  This was a project that my sister @janinemehrtens who lives in Australia and I were both making.

The pattern was from Kerry Stitch Designs. and was made up of various sized felt blocks featuring wool felt applique and embroidery.

I have shown some of the same blocks we did, but how our own styles and tastes have made them different.  This has been a fun project to do, even if I had a few upsets with incorrectly sized blocks I had to redo.  Both have been packaged up ready to be sent to Leeanne at QuiltmeKiwi to work her quilting magic on them.

  1. Two lovely creations. Is it the photos, or has Janine used a slightly overall darker palette to yours?

    1. We both had the same colour background felt, then used felts and fabrics from out stashes, so both quilts will be a little different in colour.
