While on holiday I took the opportunity to do some hand applique. I have so many projects part completed waiting for me to do the applique and I don’t often have large periods of time to get to work on them.
I took the fused blocks for my Aunt Millie’s Garden quilt with me. Although 5 have been fused only one has been fully appliqued. I’m pleased to say that I managed to complete two more blocks….which involved many hours of stitching sitting in the back of the car.
It was quite fitting that I worked on this project as I bought the pattern whilst on holiday in Devon last year. I bought it from a really nice patchwork shop in Bovey Tracey called Serendipity Quilts. The people are so friendly & helpful and have a lovely range of fabrics.
We popped in again this holiday and picked up a new project that Cupcake Princess wants us to do – a Flower Fairy quilt using the flower fairy range from Michael Miller Fabrics. We decided to go for the cornflower fairy:
We bought one of the big panels, a couple of fairy frost fabrics and then a big piece of fabric with small images of the cornflower fairy on. Come back in a few days and we should have an update on progress with the project….stitching has already started!!
