So, the first thing I have been working on are my quilted cushions. I absolutely love how they turned out - particularly the house cushion. I designed these cushions with the Ikea 20" feather insert in mind. It's all about Ikea in this house. God bless the Swedes.
I have finished both of the covers although only one has an insert. Fool that I am, I thought I had bought two inserts but alas, I only have one. And as it's a 2 hour round trip to Ikea for me the other cushion will remain empty for the time being.
The other thing I have been working on this week is an idea I have for a quilt. I love the rolling star block but can't be bothered with templates, so I worked out a way of making it without them. Here is my first effort. I like it, but I'm just not sure about what colours I'd do a quilt in or how I'd join the blocks together. It feels like it needs a bit of something else, so I'll just let it stew for a while I think.
I also unpicked a quilt top. It was all ready to be quilted but after staring at it and staring at it I decided that it needed a different type of sashing so I unpicked the whole thing. Here are the blocks all patiently waiting to be restitched.
And lastly here are two tops waiting to have their borders attached. The first is a giant pinwheel quilt I made out of Athill Range. I am really looking forward to doing this one because I am going to try to do scalloped borders.
And after some internet fabric hunting I found some Hemming House to put the borders on this quilt. I was originally going to do a thin red inner border but when I was at Hettie's on Tuesday I decided on the soft green 3 Sisters fabric. I think it picks up the green of the boder really well and I just can't go past fabric with writing on it.
So there you have it, my week in fabric. All over the shop!
