Hearts and 9 patch Quilt and Cushion.

I finsihed this little set the other day.  I had already made the heart blocks ( I'm on a mission to use things up this year, scraps, orphan blocks, you name it) and made some 9 patches to go with it.

 The quilt measures 39" x 41" and i used one layer of Soft & Bright wadding.

A small stipple makes the hearts pop.  I used Bondaweb for the applique and no other padding (trapunto)

The back.......

I had one heart block left over so thought a little cushion would be cute.  It measures 18" excluding the ruffle.

This set is for sale for £90 plus P&P.  Get in touch if you are interested.

Much excitement for me this week as my new quilting machine arrived on Monday. It is the Q'nique 14+ made by the Grace company.
We have spent the week getting accquainted.  More about that in my next post.
See you then

* UPDATE : This quilt has SOLD.

Customer quilts

Hello there
I have recently started to do a few customer quilts.
This is one I finished.

 A simple circle design for the center section and some feathers and vertical lines for the borders.


My customer was very happy with what I did.  I confess it is a little nerve wracking working on someone else s work but I just pretended it was my quilt.
Next up was a lovely batik quilt.

This is the last quilt which will be worked with my Janome 1600p because my husband gave me the surprise of my life the other night when he told me he'd bought me the Q'nique 14+.
I am so unbelievably happy.  It is a dream come true.

Isn't it lovely ?
It arrived yesterday and I will be spending this week playing.
Happy days.
Hopefully have something to show you next time.
Happy sewing until then
