Yes poppets FINALLY finished! So many months, many of them were spent resting (the quilt, not me!)
I bought my patterns from The Country Yard way back.............................crikey LAST year!
Lynette Anderson has designed many Button Mystery Block of the Months, see here for the first one 'My Garden', then here for 'Christmas Fun'.
Because I have a love affair with Kansas Troubles fabric (designed by Lynne Hagmeier) this was my choice of fabrics along with some wool felt.
The background fabrics came from my
Lynette designs the cutest hand painted buttons that really bring a quilt to life. As you can see I had fun playing with feathers on the border, I think I may go back and add more quilting in the blocks, for now it is hung in my bedroom on the quilt rack my son made me.
If you remember I had a few problems with the appilque (see here for the post about that) but Lynette was a fabulous help to me, she came up with a new setting for my blocks and asked me if I would test the new Apliquick Tools she had just started to stock. Please see this post for that story and tutorial.
There is no going back to 'the other way of appliqueing' for me!
Loving my vintage doliey for the label. Check out your local Opshops/charity stores...................if I haven't already bought them all!
This quilt looks lovely in my room with my Buggy Barn 'Quilters Village' quilt and cushions.
Another finish, this time Christmasy.
This time the fabrics were Lynette Anderson's, the thread: Cottage Garden 'Waratah', the stitchery was from Chestnut Junction the cushion construction was just me playing one Sunday afternoon some weeks back.
