I'm calling this finished! It began life as the Mystery Medallion from Sweetpea, but I really wasn't keen on the way the first block was done. The central section was decorated with very large stitches (about 7 mm) which were beginning to unravel. Altho
Second attempt at an ITH quilt for a dolls house. This time I've stitched thin wire into the edges so it looks "draped". I've also included pictures of the bedroom curtains , some 12th scale knitting and a rag rug.
I was challenged to make a dolls house quilt with hexagons "in the hoop" of an embroidery machine. This is my first. It measures 10cm by 12cm and the hexagons are coloured with Inktense pencils. The major problem with dolls house quilts is that they
I'm supposed to be reorganising my sewing room but I just couldn't not sew! These are my attempts at colouring in with Inktense pencils. Rose is the current free design at UT and the scissors were from EL. I have no idea what I will do with them!
I had heard so many good things about Sweet Pea designs that I decided to join the mystery quilt project. I bought the first design last month and tried it. I added extra stitch lines of my own so that it could be made ITH. Although there were a few
A little quitlet to cover a glass panel in my airing cupboard door. (60 cm x 110 cm including the bunting.) Pieced quilted, backed and joined in the hoop, the backing was finished by hand. (Picture for Kim!)
I loved mariagiannina's table runner (see link) so I had to see if I could come up with an ITH version. I used a batik kaftan as a source of fabric and was a bit limited as to how I could use it. My runner was made in 4 sections, joined and backed in
I do a lot of hand sewing in the evenings - mostly EPP. If I had £5 for every time I had to dismantle the sofa to find my scissors I would be a rich woman! Hopefully, this will help. It is a cushion filled with polystyrene beads, topped with a thin bo
My sister has asked me for some applique sheep designs to use with tweed. These are my first attempt. I didn't have any tweed for the faces so I needle felted some real fleece to some felt and used that. It does give it a 3D look which I like. I used twi
This is a cushion made from the test stichouts of the latest design I have uploaded to Engineered in Stitches. (Art Deco Fan.) The applique block is joined in the hoop with the option to quilt as you go.
A friend asked me to digitise a circular quilt label for her. It had fairly conventional wording which was in rows. (She stitched the design.) Then I had a request for a quilt label for a lady I'd made one for before. She gave me the wording she wanted w
