Well it is Sew and Tell Friday, so here are my finishes for the week!
A string paper pieced block inspired by Filminthefridge's tutorial, which was so easy and quick to do - fantastic. I am thinking the next time I do it I will sew straight on to batting rather than paper I need to tear off and quilt it in one go. Watch this space...
The string blocks are scraps left over from my silk table runner I did a couple of weeks ago, The silk is Designer's Guild.
For the back I used a simple envelope closure with brightly coloured buttons, I also used up some bigger pieces I had left over. It is really bright and funky just perfect to cheer me up on a miserable winter day!
I also finished off the quilt for my daughter Freya, there is a post from earlier in the week with some more detailed shots. This was the first quilt I have successfully machine stippled and I am so pleased with the end results. Freya loves it and has promised not to get felt tip pen on it!
Now for my exciting news, I got home today and in my inbox was an email from the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), they are holding a major quilt exhibition starting in March. They had seen my blog and have invited me to the Private view and a preview of the fabrics they have produced! I was going to go anyway, but this is so much more exciting. In the regular post I also had a prize I had won from Popular Patchwork Magazine, they are going to put a bit about me and a couple of my quilts on their website! Plus, yes there is more! My letter to British Patchwork and Quilting was published in the magazine this month - I feel quite important this month!!!!!!
