I made a couple of little things for a swap. The hot pad started out as a wall hanging, but I wasn’t happy with it (the story of my life it seems) so it kept getting smaller until it became what you see here. The little hearts are brooches with vintage buttons for an accent.If you looked at the picture very closely you noticed that the quilting is not symmetrical. I didn’t see it until I looked at the picture. So it’s fixed and has arrived at it’s destination. I hope the recipient likes it:) I’m adding this to Amy’s Sew and Tell Friday’s so flit on over there and check out what everybody’s made this week. It’s great fun!
I used the tutorial from Tallgrass Prairie Studio for the pattern. Thanks Jacquie!
So far my whirligig top measures 45” by 30” and I need to decide on a border so it’s big enough for a lap quilt. I don’t know why I get so stuck on things like this. Lack of experience, maybe. Any good ideas out there in blog land?
Fabrics used for this are Zippity DooDah by Sandy Gervais, Glace Damask Holly Red by 3 Sisters for Moda, Simple Abundance Paisley Picnic Red, Stripe Picnic Red and Retro Dot Picnic Red by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. I used a good unbleached muslin for the cream color because that’s what I had in the pile!
