Another Baby Quilt , A Block finished & A Christmas gift completed.

Another Baby quilt finished for my niece this time. I was fortunate enough to take a class at the Auckland Symposium, with Angela Walters, which was such fun, and gave me the confidence to try different quilting, other than my stock standard large stippling. I really enjoyed trying out different stitches, and also using my rulers. I still need loads of practice, but when the binding is on, it looks pretty OK. Baby quilts are a good way to practice...not too large! The pattern was from an idea I saw on Missouri Star Quilt Company,

I have also managed to finish a block from another class I took. This time back-basting applique with Wendy Whellum from Adelaide, Australia. This is such a great way to needle turn hand applique.

And, to finish off two cushions made as Christmas gifts for a daughter-in-law. She doesn't look at my blog, so I can show them on here.  The hexagon one was made with advise/instruction from my friend Linda at Flourishing Palms in Florida.

 Kelly's favourite colour is teal. I made both of these 16"cushions with a flapped zipper, which was so easy.

I got the idea for this from Scissortail Studio: How to make a Perfect Zippered Pillow on you tube.

Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for stopping by

Oh Sue! I sure love seeing the hexagon pillow you made. It's so pretty... and actually, those are my favorite colors. I'm tickled that it turned out so beautifully. I hope she love it, and the other pillow too, of course! As for your quilting, I'm proud of you for trying, and doing such a nice job. You picked the right size project for attempting your new knowledge, and it's great! Well done all around. Thank you so much for sharing!
