Nearly Done

A couple of projects near completion. This little quilt still needs the border. It's a Hatched and Patched pattern called Simple Pleasures, I enlarged the blocks a bit. I tried stitching the 2" blocks and decided it wasn't for me, so mine are 3 1/2" I think.


I decided to use some Jo Morton fabrics in this quilt, all browns and pinks.
Another stitchery almost complete, I need to add the HST's around the outer edge. This is a Cinderberry Stitches pattern called Raspberry Cream. I added a little touch of green to the embroidery.

Both should be finished really soon, when I have time in between working at the shop, teaching and machine quilting for others, I don't have another class to do until Dec, so one less thing to do.

Aren't those owl so cute.

Happy Quilting!

Two inches is kind of tiny. They really turned out cute ... all of them!

Adorable sticheries, Wendy! I think I would have enlarged them, too! I sure wish I had some of your "time management" secrets! Cheers!

Your Simple Pleasures looks wonderful! I have that one on my stack of things to start, but I too was wondering about those itty bitty stitcheries. I think I might enlarge mine too! :0)

Nice work Wendy. Do your fingers throb like mine have been? That stitching can be a killer. But I can't stop. I've sold so many of that Raspberry Cream pattern. It's the cutest thing isn't it?
