A new top, and an oops!

This week I started working on a new project - a quilt I had promised Mark and Amy for their family room - a room they've decorated like an old English bar. I purchased some wine themed fabric, but had stalled on what pattern to use, I didn't want to cut the feature fabric up too much.

This is what I ended up making for them. It was easy to put together using half square triangles for the pieced blocks, and the feature print is fun for the alternate blocks. It's based on a design from the Missouri Star Quilt co. I couldn't follow their pattern exactly as I only had a small amount of the burgundy fabric and couldn't waste a single scrap of it.

A big thank you to my lovely friend Betty for gifting the burgundy print to me. It was the perfect thing! The green fabric in the small border was a small piece from my stash too, and that's all gone now. It's fun to use things up!

I'll get busy quilting the top on Sunday so hopefully it'll all be finished next week.

And now for my oops! I shared block four of the Lily Rosenberry quilt with you in my last post. During the week I did all the applique stitching and then soaked the glue from the block. At least, I thought I'd done all the stitching ...

Oops! In that lower stem between the berries I missed stitching it down on either side, and the upper stem between the berries I missed stitching down one side! Big oops! I'll fix up the applique before I head to bed tonight, hopefully I can get it to look as neat as the other stems.

Well, that's it from me tonight, this has been a busy week and I'm very tired - I haven't responded to any emails just yet, so I'll do that on Sunday. Thank you all so much for stopping by, I always love receiving your messages! xox

I really like your wine themed quilt. That is a great layout for a large print. I have a beautiful splashy bright fabric that I bought but have had no idea how to use. Thanks for the inspiration.
