Here’s a lovely little quilt I made this week for a good friend of mine, celebrating a new direction in her working career.
As she is a die-hard lover of bunnies, I sourced a sweet embroidery from Andrea Zuill’s website Badbirds called Folk Rabbit and paired it with four paper-pieced Union Jack blocks taken from a pattern in the book Modern Blocks. I also quilted Union Jacks in the green corner blocks – almost like an echo of the paper-pieced blocks.
Here’s a few piccys of the process…
I’m really happy with how it turned out after cramming in time over the last few days to both start and finish it.
I’m slowly churning out a few more of the Union Jack blocks as part of yet another quilt I have in mind to make… We’ll see how far that gets in the near future!
I’m still patiently hand-quilting my Jacob’s Ladder quilt. I try to make sure I do a little bit every night as I’m watching TV. I must admit, I haven’t done much this week as other things have been happening, but I’ll make sure I make a conscious effort to do more this coming week.
Happy Sewing! xx
