Christmas in July .. and a Quiltalong
It's great to be able to show the projects I designed for Christmas in July at Quilt Fabric Delights. This pair of cushions could be made in any colour combination, but they worked well as a modern look, decorator cushion for Christmas. Thanks to Emma for helping me style the pic too.
I also made a little drawstring bag called Gingersnap, as you can make it in a snap! I like to make the kids teachers little bags at Christmas with a box of chocolates inside. A few teachers have a bit of a collection now as they have taught the kids over the years. This little pattern can also make a quick gift bag with a fussy cut feature fabric or a different stitchery added to the centre.
I'm a bit late in blogging this, but Kerri at Lovely Little Handmades and Andrea at Knitty Bitties have been posting a quiltalong using my Picnic in the Park tutorial that I designed for Sew Mama Sew. It's not too late to join in, as this quilt will come together quicker than you would think! Have a look at the beautiful versions that Kerri and Andrea have on the go.
