This time I have used a bunch of my favourite reproduction fabric blues that have been in the stash. The EPP papers are recycled. Can you guess which quilt they are from?
Anyone who has made this quilt will know those shapes straight away - yep - they are from the Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses . That was mine, completed in 2013:
And here is a block close up so you can see the EPP shapes:
I have used one or two of the fabrics in the pouch too - pieced together with some 1 inch squares:
Then appliqued onto a backing and quilted into a mini quilt:
Then made into a pouch ( see previous post for method from Quilters Companion magazine ). I especially love the floral fabric popped in for a surprise lining - an old Mary Koval line.
So then there were 3 pouches, and 3 stars too. The Christmas gift pile is looking well and truly "started" now. Mind you....I think I might just keep that blue one...a little self-gift?
Back to the big quilts.
I won't be posting more pictures of my neutral Auntie Green for a while. I realise that my DD is looking at this blog occasionally and it is a gift for her wedding (next year). I'd like to keep some element of surprise. But I will post pictures once it has been gifted.
Ann Randoll is progressing - oh so slowly - on this last applique and hexagon garden bed border. I have attached two borders and love the look of it.
I think this will be the last border for me - though the original antique coverlet has another large pieced one to follow. I quite like the look of this garden bed as an outer border - with just a thin brown binding to blend in with the saw tooth edge. Could be good?
Once it is finished I have a new quilt on the boil..not started, but just in the exciting planning stages.
