I have been working on piecing up the backing for my "Scrapbag Sailboats" quilt. I made more little sailboats and appliqued them to a strip of Kona Snow. I also made a wavy strip and appliqued that down as well, using the rawedge technique. Looks really cute I bought the piece of fabric with the banners to make the backing...couldn't resist it. I have also decided to try something new with this project. I will be using Quilter's Dream Poly for batting. A few quilters that I follow have been raving about it so thought I would give it a try. Will let you know how it works. I have my FM quilting plan in my head..somewhat...and I am anxious to get it started.
I will be using a Sulky Blendable in a blue variegation.
I made this quilt for my QuiltySister back a while ago, and I have been waiting for her to visit to give it to her. She loves it! I named it "Rabbit Stewie". I made it for her to commemorate her precious bunny rabbit "Stewie" , who she had to give away to a new home before she moved from Holland to Malaysia. That was a few years ago, but she still misses him. The pattern is from Rabbit's Haven and is called "Huggable Me". I won the pattern in a giveaway and knew I had to make it for her
I received this gorgeous pair of scissors as a gift from QuiltySister. Love them! I adore scissors and I have a nice collection.
Hope you have time to do something quilty today!
