Tea Time


I have been having Internet connectivity issues...

My fingers are crossed that is all behind me now!

I started making this wall hanging a couple of years ago with Penny.
I helped Penny finish hers and then mine just kept getting relegated to the bottom of the pile...

But ta da - done!

Teahouse Wall Hanging

This is based on a design by Alysse Hennessey
in the book Pretty Little Mini Quilts.

DS Cushion

Back to Cushions...

After finishing off the Caravan Cushion I was a bit inspired to make another cushion and I remembered that I had a little DS Quilts Kit  stashed away for a rainy day type thing somewhere, so I dug it out and whipped it up.

I vaguely followed the pattern... sort of.

Mine is a bit larger than the pattern and I included some grey fabric for the back and binding, so the original cushion insert I had was no longer big enough sooo...

I made this one too.

Patchy Pillow

The scrappy half is raw edge quilt as you go applique and then I have joined it to the green lattice type fabric which I also quilted. It has an envelope back and I have used a french style seam to the outside to enclose the raw edges.
