I have begun the Blessings Quilt. After careful consideration of my ability to get seams correctly aligned 000000. I decided I would make the large rings using the EPP method. Using the one template I feel that I have a better chance of getting them even. What is it about cutting into a new piece of fabric....ahhhh!
I have prepared 12 papers for the first ring...so big! The basting done and the stitching begun.
Loving the vintagey look already.
Yesterday I finished my naughty Cockatoo named now the "Petunia Pilferer " My friend Trish kindly supplied the reference photo. ...thank you x The shadow on the left is me...sorry about that!
After my signature went on I began another piece...and another new beginning ....learning to enlarge your drawing through measurements. No photocopying or tracing here! It took me ages to get my head around it but as I said..there is a beginning. We have a drawing and the first layer of coloured pencil is down. I really want to do a good job on this one as it is special.
I wish you all a joyful day. I am off to the bay for some stitching with my friends.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
