I’ve backed the pincushion with some of Amy Butler’s Soul Blossoms.
It finished up at 8″ diameter and 1″ deep so I hope my partner doesn’t mind slightly large pincushions. I might have to make one for myself.
Another of the flickr swaps I’m in has just finished and I can now break my silence on what I made. My Favourite Little Quilt Swap hosted by Kendra is a blind swap. You make a quilt and submit photos to Kendra who adds them to the group, votes are then cast and partners are decided after voting closes. It is such a fun swap although I do angst over whether anyone will like my entry but that’s just my competitive and neurotic tendencies coming out.
This time around I went with patchwork and quilting rather than applique like last time. I named this mini ‘Charlotte Sometimes Scribbles’. I used the pattern ‘Charlotte Sometimes’ from the book Material Obessions 2 as my inspiration. The scribbles refers to the quilting design I used. I pieced the back with scraps left over from the front. I used Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler and Oz fabrics with a Kona grey cotton. Hopefully my partner will be happy when he/she receives it 🙂
