I have a couple of pretty quilts to share with you that are soft pastel colours that make me think Easter for some reason. Cat made both quilts as gifts for friends........lucky friends!
Cat likes my cotton batting, so this was used in both quilts.
I thought this one was appropriate for Easter. Sadly the colours are much prettier than what is showing here, mind you it was an overcast day when I took this photo. Measuring : 53" x 66".
Cat has been keen to use up scraps, her scraps are taking over........do you have the same problem? They seem to multiply!
Cat chose straight lines for this one, which works well, this quilt will stand years of cuddles.
Next is another great one for using up the scraps too.
I continued the theme of straight lines on the heart, then I quilted some large curling ribbon. This one measures 45" x 52".
Cat used a vintage sheet for the backing & some of the blue fabrics where also vintage sheets.......she must go on some OpShop jaunts like me!
That's it for the quilt front for a few days. If you fancy hanging around I will happily share something I have been playing with, plus a sweet gift from a friend.
On one of my jaunts to our 'LOSP" (local OpShop) I found a 70's china cabinet for the grand total of forty dollars. It was in great condition, just needed bringing into the now! I pulled out the fabric speaker in the lower left hand corner & all the wires & old carpet, gave it a good clean, then set to work. I tried my hand at decoupage in the back part of the shelves where the glass sliding doors go. Hubby gave me some very old sheet music, plus I glued some vintage sewing paraphernalia papers, courtesy of the internet & some old lace etc then several coats of clear polyurethane.
I should have taken photo's before I dragged it in from the shed & put all my china in it, but I was so excited.
A few test pots of paint, masking tape, some old handles & even one of Mum's old Sylko wooden spools!
My next sharing is a gift from a friend that really surprised me! Such a sweet gift. There were Easter eggs in the bag, but someone ate them!!!!!!?????
The pattern was one of Bronwyn Hayes from Red Brolly .
I can tell you, I wasn't the only one to get one of these sweet bags......................thank you so much Aurely!
Wishing you all a Happy restful holiday.
