Here’s what I’ve been working on recently. Still a ways to go on that third gourd – plan to hinge the top on this one, and skip the pine needle border. We’ll see how it turns out!
The pincushions were just too cute – I had to try them! Pattern came from cloth-paper-scissors’ 2008 special issue on Studios – stuffed yo-yo pincushions by Michele Muska. (http://www.quiltingarts.com/shop/StudiosMagazine.html) Very easy and fun. I used scrap silks and velveteens, with a bit of newly purchased ribbon. So mostly from the stash.
I’m proudest of the third item above – based on the photo to landscape quilt class that I took in April, and based on a photo taken by Nick Stooke in South America. Click on the photo for his details. Finished quilt measures approximately 14″ x 16″.
