At the moment I feel like the rough water beneath the boat. All looks calm on the top but here - behind the scenes I have been madly sewing and stitching working on lots of upcoming projects. There are a lot of projects that I work on for the Magazines and other Publications that I can only show you sneak peaks and I have to keep things under wraps - I love sharing and only showing bits and pieces kills me!
This big pile of projects left the other day - can't wait to share with you the actual fronts and all of these projects later down the track.
Anyway something I can show you is a project that I have just started (in-between far too many other unfinished projects). Green Tea and Sweet Beans by Jen Kingwell has been around for a little while and I have seen several interpretations of this pattern - all stunning. Some people have hand sewn the whole project using the templates but I have decided to mix it up and machine sew some blocks and hand sew others using techniques that I like and are far more familiar with.
I started with a Starter Kit from Westwood Acres Fabrics for this quilt and then went through my stash pulling fabrics that I thought show off the types and colours of fabrics that are my favourites. These are my blocks so far and I am pretty happy with how it is all coming together at the moment.
(which despite unpicking twice are still sewn together moving in the wrong direction)
Anyway there are a few custom order quilts which I am about to start that I can share with you as I go - so looking forward to not being so secret squirrel about all that I am working on.
