So I have been doing a little more stitching than I have been sharing with you.
Now that they have been received I can show you
what you can do with some thread and fabric!
In a bid to release the reigns on my epp obsession
I went for some freeform quilting
totally off the cuff
just sewing from the heart.
Actually I just wanted to make my pal Mary a label
it just evolved a little.
My second make also for Mary
is this kantha quilted heart.
Mary has Irish roots and three daughters
so I embellished it with a vintage pin with three shamrocks.
(these should have been separate gifts, but I was a little tardy on posting)
Making smaller items make the finer details all the more important,
and allows you to explore ideas
like the diagonal stripe binding
that I have been desperate to try out.
If you loved these little gifts
then why not
hop on over to Marys blog
where she is giving away
the cutest peppermint swirl pin cushion!
