Last Saturday, I took a zoom class with David Owen Hastings. For the project, we were to each choose a picture of a building or structure to inspire our quilts. My husband and I visited Dunnottar Castle in Scotland a few years ago and I took lots of pictures there. The castle is mostly a ruin and my picture was of the end wall of the chapel. We then used some paper frames to zero in on a particular part of our picture, drew a pattern and made the quilt using three shades of solid fabrics and a pop of colour.
Adding some walking foot quilting with various colours and weights of thread made my little quilt come to life. I still need to add facings...maybe this week, that will get done.
At the guild sewing day, I added the final borders to my modern sampler quilt. It will fit the twin sized bed in the guest room perfectly! I will be figuring out a backing and then taking this one to my long armer.
Our church Christmas bazaar was today and I was asked to quilt this baby quilt top which was purchased at a thrift store for $3. I stitched in the ditch around the rocking horse and around the light blue parts. The backing is minky and I managed to finish it without any puckers! The binding is a yellow and white stripe which a friend had in her stash.
I have started the decreases on the top section of my hat. It should not take very long to finish this off. I will be working on it for slow Sunday stitching tomorrow.
A few more stitches were added to the Sunflower cross stitch this week. I really want to put this aside and work on my Christmas picture...
There have been some cold and frosty mornings around here lately!
Finn is such a happy boy! He decided that mid walk was a good time for a belly rub!
I will link up with the Slow Sunday Stitchers at Kathy's blog and with the Quilting Patchwork Appliqué blog. Have a great week!
