I have worked non-stop on this block for the last couple of days and the end is finally in sight! Just a few more grapes and 2 leaves to go. Thank goodness I have lots of chocolate covered cranberries for motivation…stitch a bit, eat some chocolate…stitch a bit, eat some chocolate!! It is amazing what you can get accomplished with the right motivation!
I must confess, it doesn’t take much to distract me. I opened my closet to look for some green fabric I knew would be perfect for my Feathered Star and I noticed these quilts on the shelf. They had slipped my mind (out of sight, out of mind!) and I thought I would share them. All three wallhangings were made and entered in the Northcott Challenge, which is a yearly challenge sponsored by Northcott Fabrics. Only fabrics made by Northcott may be used and each wallhanging must measure a maximum of 40″ square. I love challenges…both in quilting and in life!!
I love a Mariner’s Compass. It is my favourite pieced design. I added an appliqued wavy border and some dolphins for fun. It is machine pieced and machine quilted.
This wallhanging is hand-appliqued and machine quilted. I drew the background design and then added the loons from “A Day at the Lake” by Nancy Murty of Bee Creative Studios.
Til next time…
