I must confess that I finished my new BOM "Fairy Meadow" a few days ago but I have not had one spare minute to get on the computer and type a quick post. Well there is never a "Quick" post especially seeing that us typepad gals are still learning to navigate with the new features of composing a post. I am heading down to the Sydney Trade Show next weekend and I have been racing around like a chook without a head! "Apologies chook lovers"..........you know what I mean. So in between my classes I have been getting my catalogue organised for the printers, and whipping up some new samples of a few of my designs. I thought it would be nice to have a just a few of them in different colourways. So here is "Aggie" looking very fresh!
I also made another Isabella's day Out bag. The other colours I have in this bag range from pretty Yellow and Red to Pink paisley, which is on loan to me by my dear friend Janelle. Thanks Lou xx So I thought a stronger colourway would broaden the variety a bit.
And there's Angeline. My delightful little angel. She used to come with a little crochet hat & bag but with the demand of them it was a bit difficult to maintain supply. So I decided to give her a slightly new look. A new hat. She is so quick and easy to make. Angeline is the perfect weekend project if your looking to make a special gift for a friend.
So now for a glass of bubbly and saving the best for last. I am so pleased to have finished Fairy Meadow. I love the way it has all turned out. I am hoping to squeeze in a few hours this weekend to start pattern writing. Otherwise it will have to wait until after the Trade Show. Fairy Meadow will be an 8 month program due to the repeated flower blocks. It breaks down to 7 months of stitchery and applique and then the final month is borders and bindings, so this means you will have it finished in no time 8-}
I thought I would throw in some appliqued hearts for a bit of extra love! Now who wouldn't want meadow fairies dancing all over their bed? or snuggled on their lap perhaps!
I decided to quilt it with the stitch in the ditch method. I thought about quilting it on my frame with a freehand quilt design but decided against it as the fabrics are so busy and far too yummy to be distracted with machine quilting.
So there is my fully completed "Fairy Meadow". The girls will be on full display next weekend which I am sooooooooooooo excited about. It is for the wholesale industry so there will be lots of new release fabrics on display and that in itself makes for an awesome adventure! So enjoy Fairy meadow and until next time....
I'm lovin' the bubbles up my nose... "In Stitches"
P.S Please excuse the underline. My post gremlin just decided to put that in and I can't get rid of it. EEERRRGGHHH!
