In the meantime I have still been working on other things. At last weekend's quilting class we began preparing for Christmas and made adorable Christmas stockings. I like making Christmas things with untraditional colour combinations, hence the zingy blue and green in my stocking. As ever, a good time was had by all and we all made lovely things. I will definitely be making more of these, though I am going to wait until November (I know it's only next week) before I start thinking about Christmas in earnest.
I have finished a girly quilt in pinks and low volume fabrics. This is very simple, but I think it works well. The backing is from my trip to Ikea and I love how this quilt is grown-up and traditional on the back but young and frivolous on the front. Ikea has clearly gone for the "Cath Kidston" factor with this fabric and I think it's a winner.
The other great thing about this quilt is that it has generated lovely scraps! I loved making my scrappy star quilt recently so I am now going about making smaller scrappy stars and piecing them together. I like how it looks so far. This should definitely be ready for next week's Friday Finish post.
Thanks for visiting.
