Not much sewing has happened here during July.
Here’s a Round up of RSC projects this month:
Sawtooth Stars blocks, one with some purple fabric.
I continued to make the Elephants and Zebras Medallion style quilt, it’s basted and I’ve done some machine quilting. It will now be a hand project to take to Patchwork meetings when I will hand quilt with Perle threads.
I now have a home for a Baby quilt I made in September 2006! I named it Little Boy Fishing and I loved this quilt - there’s a lot of work in it, all hand quilted with Perle threads and all the appliqué is blanket stitched by hand. I didn’t have a home for is at the time but when our daughter was pregnant in 2009/10 I decided to gift it if we had a Grandson. At that time I made a similar one in pinks and lilacs with Sunbonnet Sues in case we had a Granddaughter. Our Granddaughter was born on 2nd February 2010 so Little Boy Fishing was put away.
Several times over the years I have considered gifting but then didn’t. Finally this week we received great news from New Zealand. Good friends of ours have a Grandson, Hugo Christopher William, born on 26th July in Wellington, NZ.
This is the perfect home for Little Boy Fishing!
It measures 47” square and the label is made, just need to sew that on tomorrow and parcel it up ready to mail on Monday.
It’s a grey cloudy day here so this isn’t a true colour, much brighter in real life.
A couple of close ups.
And the backing, appropriate anchor designs. I still have a bit of this fabric left in my stash.
