Hello readers and friends, today's first sprinkling of eye candy is a small Christmas wall hanging I made as a sample for The Country Yard. It's called Snow Buddies by Bird Brain Designs.
I used Cottage Garden Thread ~ 'Hugs & Kisses' for the snowmen and women and two different Lynette Anderson fabrics from two of her ranges. The pattern calls for these cute stitcheries to be made into oval tree decorations, but I decided on a wall hanging instead.
Still on the Christmas theme...............................
A design by Susan Martin ~ "Suzn Quilts" called A Merry Christmas to you. Lots of iddy biddy SID. Kerryn is a fan of cross hatching over her stitcheries and asked for this once again.
Lots of cute little Dresdens! Star blocks, nine patch blocks and pinwheel blocks also came in the size small!
Piecing, applique, stitching makes for a nice mix. The quilt measures 47" x 44" a nice wall hanging size for next Christmas, unless of course you are a super fast quilt maker, then you could have it made for this Christmas! Available as a Block of the Month or as a kit from The Country Yard.
Next is a quilt Janette made using all her beachy fabrics then asked me to quilt 'Marmalade' an all over design (edge to edge).
Janette loved the idea of having a picnic quilt to be kept in the car, great for a stop at the beach with fish & chips for dinner on a summer evening.
I remembered to take a photo of the scrummy thread I used, Fantastico (I like to say that with an Italian accent, it sounds more exotic!) called 'playhouse'.
Yesterday morning out walking I took another photo of my new neighbour, soooooo cute! Back soon with more quilts and quilting to share.
