March WISP - another finish
Just finished in time!
This is my first attempt at a miniature quilt from a pattern by Ann Hermes. Ann makes her miniatures from vintage fabrics. You can view her work on her website.
It's pieced not foundation and yes, it was quite tricky managing all those teensy, weensy little bits. I machine quilted with a variegated thread.
Quite the *learning experience* and I would definitely like to make some more.
In the meantime, I have fallen for this quilt
It's called Enduring Elegance and is a design by Lissa Alexander. I'm definitely in a *pretty floral* phase at the moment.
I also eagerly await news that my swap partner Tracey (cherkeemom) has received her box of goodies. I know I can't wait to receive my swap from Tracey.
Tia, who is organising the Bush Fire Quilt project, has received lots of blocks, finished quilts and other bits and pieces. The team has started to put the quilts together. Catch up with the latest news on her blog.
