I’m still getting a little thrill every time I see my completed Daisy Chain quilt and I have to admit I’m probably spending a little longer than is necessary making my bed in the mornings just so I can look at it! After two years in the making I sort of hope this feeling will last a while 🙂
I’ve been sorting out the left over fabric from this quilt and I think that there may be just enough to squeeze a small quilt out of it if I’m creative with the fabric 🙂 I’ve had a hankering to make a basket quilt for a little while now so that’s what I’ve decided to use the left overs for.
This is what I’ve done so far
Little baskets prepped (using the starch method), glue basted onto the background and now ready to be stitched.
I’ll even get to perfect my sharp point appliqué skills I learnt from doing my Nautical baby quilt here.
The idea of this project will be to provide a hand sewing project to do when the need arises – car journeys, quiet evenings – you know the sort of thing. So not a speedy finish, but rather a leisurely journey (a bit like the original but hopefully not another two years before it’s finished!)
Until next time,
