I have been missing in action for a few days....... do you get withdrawal symptoms when you don't get to sew?... I do. Seriously I'm addicted!
Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.
This month (January) the Small Wonders Club quilt pattern is called 'Rose of Thorns'. I am in love with this little quilt it has all my favourite colours in it and of course a little applique too. I think I'm also addicted to Flying Geese blocks, they are so cute in the border. Rose Of Thorns measures 22 inches square.
Loving the way this fabric fits perfectly with the Nine patch blocks I have been busy making. Love the subtle colours. I think I'll call this quilt 'Vintage Nine Patch'.
Playing with thread, fabric and quilting ideas is so much fun. I had no real plan for this design other than trying out new and old techniques to create a vintage look.
I have enjoyed every stitch while making this quilt, including the applique border. While making the border I made a few videos on the applique techniques I used, you can find them on the Tutorials page here
