I found some little flower-shaped shell buttons to use for the angels faces (above, bottom right) to complete this project! I quilted straight lines on the outside pieced border, some in-the-ditch quilting around the blocks and then some stars and hearts in some of the plainer spaces on the larger blocks. I’m so excited about hanging this up in my house in just a few short weeks’ time. Have you got any Christmas finishes to share? It took me a year to complete this one… picking it up in-between magazine commissions. Now I want to start another intricate quilt as I absolutely adore the detail. Are you a details kinda girl too?
I’ve got some home improvements to share with you soon. Mr SUDs has taken some time off work so we could decorate together. So far we have painted up the stairs and landing, and glossed nine internal doors… three coats on each! Tomorrow will be spent moving furniture around as we are having carpet laid in the lounge, stairs, landing and study this coming Friday. We’ve gone for a neutral beige carpet… are we crazy? A friend said to me, “You like to live life dangerously!”
I will be without my computer for a few days as we get organised and plug everything back in again. I am itching to sew again… just too much else to do at the moment and a very untidy house to do it in!
See you on the flip side dear friends!
Hugs (oops, sorry did I get paint on you???)
