I finished this mini quilt last weekend ~ it was my second attempt at hand quilting something, and I was happy with how it turned out. This pattern is from 'Prairie Children and Their Quilts' by Kathleen Tracy. Thank you Tracee for the gorgeous hanger!
Back in May, I joined in with Chookyblue for her 3rd birthday Chookshed party - apologies for being a little late in posting about it (I was internet-less and camera-less for a little while there!). I spent the birthday weekend working on a birthday gift for my lovely friend Marg - this cushion, a Gail Pan pattern, but with a different stitchery, also a Gail Pan design, appliqued on the front. The front of this cushion is also hand quilted, but with big stitches. I did forget to take a photo, so have borrowed this one from Sue..... I must admit, I was very happy with this bit of sewing!
The cushion and the stitchery are from Gail's book, Patchwork loves Embroidery', which I love. I have stitched a few designs out of it, all waiting to be made into something soon....
Back in March I went with a few lovely friends to a sewing day with Gail Pan and Ramona Hermann, which was a fantastic day out. Sue has a great post about it on her blog here.
