Less blogging more sewing going on around here...
I used happy bright colours and a bit of low volume to balance it out.
There's lots of fun panels, strawberries and a pot of jam?! So cute!
I also finished another embroidered custom cushion with pretty girly prints:
Another custom order from a dear friend, a bright and bold play mat, backed with soft flannel:
This was not an easy make because I picked the highest loft batting. While this will be great for a baby it was not great for my machine. I attempted quilting and it went horribly wrong. So I had a re-think and after seeing Rebecca's post I decided tacking was the way to go. No way was I going to do fmq when my walking foot couldn't even deal, so I turned to what I love - a bit of hand stitching.
I did some little star stitches, coordinating the thread with the fabrics on the front. The back looks like a chesterfield sofa and it stops the fabric from shifting around. I hope the family it's gifted too will love it!
And I do enjoying wrapping and sending out my handmade wares:
Right back to the making, I have another custom quilt and a yoga bag that need finishing!
