The Sewing Room is working well and I have managed to finish some of the many UFO's in my stash.
My Thread Exploration Journey
This was started in a workshop with Barrie Ashton through WQC, 10 June 2016.
Completed 19 May 2018
A mystery quilt designed by Wendy Oswin for Dream Girls 2012. It was a medallion quilt with more rounds but I stopped here as running out of fabric which I was using from my stash.
Quilted and completed 24 May 2018,
Rhapsody or The Band
A jellyroll race that I made in August 2012. I added the band silhouette to make it personal for my brother, Dennis as he plays in a band. Completed 30 June 2018 and
sent to him in Gravesend 25 July 2018.
A Halberg family Challenge set by Lynette who sent us some stitchery patterns of "The Village Square set No. 2". This was due September 2012. I did the stitchery and put a border on it. Finally completed 9 July 2018
Queen of the Daffodils
Card Capers challenge for the Feilding Kowhai Quilters Club (FKQC).
I got the Queen of Diamonds and the flower the Queen was holding reminded me of a daffodil. I then decided to use the photo of my cat Bootsie amongst the daffodils. This is 12 x 12 and won the challenge at the Club meeting in July.
William Morris Mariners Compass
I attended a class with Juliet Fitness at Quilters Dream, 13 April 2013. Made using William Morris fabric and finally completed 27 July 2018.
My Morris Garden
In July 2008, I started this quilt with a set of Morris Garden by Barbara Brackman charm squares. I loved it and wanted to make a bed size quilt so tracked down more charm squares and fabric and made to single bed size. Finally quilted and completed 5 Aug 2018. This one has 2x cat approval.
Poppy's Pot Luck Quilt
A class with Natalie Murdoch called Pot Luck held through WQC in April 2012.
It was made using fabric strips and sewn together on paper to make the blocks. I got bored making these blocks so made a small quilt for my dog Poppy. Completed 6 Aug 2018.
