Table Runner

This runner was embroidered a few years back and I finally finished it.  The design is from Embroidery Library and you can get it here.

A close up of the beautiful design.

Viewers Choice

My Block a Day quilt was selected as winner of the Viewers Choice at our quarterly meeting last week.  Surprisingly, the Art of Quilting Sampler Quilt attracted only two votes.

I received a goody bag with lots of useful items by the group hosting the meeting.  Thanks!  I am sure they will come in handy.

Heritage Quilt - Blocks 8 & 9

Block 8 is a very busy block with hardly any space left for quilting.  It consists out of a lot of pre-embroidered elements combined with satin and organza ribbon.  After everything was stitched to the block, some more embroidery was added.

Whilst completing the block, I discovered 3 pins still stuck inside, so I had to unpick small areas to get them out.

Block 9 was a fun and easy block.  I enjoyed the ribbon threading with just four embroidery elements to add although each took 75 minutes to embroider.

Sewing Roll up

I don't know why it seems to take me 5 years to finish projects, but is really working towards finishing up all these odds and ends.

We received a kit for a sewing roll up in our goodie bags during the Quilt Festival which our Guild hosted in 2013 and I finally stitched mine.

It is perfect to take along all the tools needed for a lazy Saturday afternoon stitching with the girls.

Opened up it looks like this :                                                           and closes up in a neat bundle.
