Brit Sewing Thursday Linky (21st November 2013)

So another week has gone by and I am deeply into university research at the moment, so very little sewing has taken place in the last seven days. Fortunately though I do have one of last year's Christmas quilts to share with you. As I mentioned before I had a couple of quilts that I made and didn't post about on the blog, so it's good to finally get round to doing so.

This is a wall quilt that I made for my niece Millie. It was a bit of a last minute make as the wall quilt I originally made her didn't quite fit the bill when I finished it a couple of weeks before Chrsitmas, so I decided to do another. I made it by creating 4 pieced strips from scraps and then sticking them together. All rather haphazard, but remarkably it turned out ok!

Millie's name which I printed from photoshop in a font called Lobster, is rendered in white felt and was attached using Heat N Bond Ultra. The only thing I'd do differently if I could was to use a different fabric for the binding. It works well apart from the bits where the turquoise pigs are visible and a bit distracting.

Here it is on the wall at the head of her bed. The original quilt which I made for her in Christmas 2010 is on the bed, with a less successful one (in my opinion!) from 2011 folded up nearest the camera. It's quite a thing I have started with this girl and quilts!

  1. Hi and thank you for hosting again! What a beautiful quilt! Great letter with the little scraps! x Teje

  2. Love the Scrappy M. What a great idea! The bed quilt looks lovely and I bet the folded one is too. I spy a fabric on the back of the quilt (the spotty one) that I bought a couple of metres of and used in a few quilts. I might have a tiny strip left in my scraps!

  3. Wall quilt looks great and I hadn't noticed any distraction with the binding until you mentioned it. I think we always notice stuff with our own work we'd do differently.

  4. What a perfect mini! I really like the binding too!
    How lucky to have a quilting mad auntie, there is always more room for another quilt!!!

  5. Lovely wall quilt - and the one on her bed looks gorgeous too! No sewing to share from me this week I'm afraid, knitting has temporarily taken over!
