|Happy home wall hanging - by Hatched and Patched|
This is my first Monthly Make for January, if you want to join in see the button on my side bar or visit The Felt Fairy who is hosting this event.
January is my favourite month, it is so nice to have a break from most of our commitments and just enjoy hanging out together, getting things done around home and sewing time for me! Charlie and I had fun going through my collection of quilting magazines and books to choose the pattern for her quilt and she decided on 'Annie's Garden' from Material Obsession by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. Of course, once the pattern was chosen we couldn't wait to go shopping for the fabric ...
It was a pleasure for me to see Charlotte's excitement as she put fabrics together. We had wonderful help from the staff at Grandmother's Garden and they suggested the perfect Cottage Garden thread for the appliqué. Charlie did a fabulous job choosing and the fabrics are really pretty. That same evening Charlie 'encouraged' me to start the first appliqué block and she choose the fabrics for me to use.
You may be able to see the variation of colour in the close up of the stitching, the thread is so pretty and brings out all the colours in the fabric.
It is the weekend tomorrow, I hope to get some leaves appliquéd on my Vignette blocks!
Happy stitching, Wendy
