I’ve been working on some projects since my last posting here and I’ve managed to complete 2 quilts that will be featured in Popular Patchwork magazine, one in the next issue and a second split into 2 issues of the magazine later in the year.
I also found time between them to complete a project for myself from a book – Folk Art Applique by Clare Kingslake – that I bought a few years ago. Being used to working on quilts, the 3 small Wallhangings were a challenge in that each is approx. A4 size. As I don’t have the time or dexterity of hand(s) to complete needle-turn quilting I appliqued the pieces onto the backing, and machined the long grasses too. I embroidered the ‘flowers’ and bird markings to finish them. The 3 Wallhanging holders are 7½ inches width which shows how small they are. I love the end result and the fact that they are mine.
