Sorry it has been a bit quiet around here lately. I have become a little addicted to flickr! Much quicker to upload everything that I am doing and easier with the girls around.
Lots going on over there so you should check it out. My photostream is here. Let me know if any of you are on flickr so I can add you as a contact.
Anyhoo, round 7 of the doll quilt has started and I have been stalking my partner. Although not too much stalking was really needed as I already knew of them. But that doesn't give too much away as I think I already knew of most of the quilters taking part this round! This is what is making it so much more fun!
I am not entirely sure this is what I will end up sending my partner but I like how it is turning out so far. I decided I wanted to do some raw edge applique and mix techniques a little.
So I started with a tree and carved an oval shape out of an eraser and used that to stamp the leaves.
Then I sewed some strips together for the ground and added a bird and a birdhouse (to cover a botched stamp!).
And I am also working on this.
I used the same technique as for my STUD mini but this time instead of sewing all over all the fabric I sewed around each piece of fabric.
This is what I have now. I have to say I LOVE it and I will have a hard time indeed sending it away!
