Simply Red

Another Show & Tell from me, Simply Red, a Karen Cunningham design is finally finished - and currently residing on my bed. Thankyou to Susan Smith once again for the fabulous quilting, which without Simply Red would remain unfinished for some time.

The centre of Simply Red is needle turned using the one fabric from French General Rounnierres...my absolute favourite. The border is also a French General fabric.

This quilt was actually a few firsts for me. 1st time to a quilting workshop, 1st time at Summer School in Wodonga, 1st time for needle turning.....I've managed a little more since then.

I will try & make the time to post some updates as I go....anymore Finishes maybe a little while off.

Having problems loading photos again....sorry I can't share more

Long Time Between Posts

Well it feels like forever, but time for a little update from me.

Thankyou to QWE JulieAnn for taking over the posting while my stitching mind has been absent...everything has taken a backseat while facing family / life challenges

Some Finishes to share...yes that word!!

Lullabye; a Karen Cunningham design. I've made mine into a wallhanging, it's all hand stitched except for the outside border. I  gave hand quilting a go in the centre...am afraid quilting of any sort is really not my forte

Arabesque; a Michele Hill design. Am so very happy to have this one done, with thanks to Susan Smith for the quilting that was possible.

Would like to have shown you more closeups but am having major problems loading them....

I am currently binding Simply Red, that will be next show & tell and stitching a little on French Mosaic, another of Karen's designs.

Sew much to do....sew little time!

Til next time...hopefully soon
