So, what did I do meanwhile, what do you think, .........................., lol, stitching and creating.
Wanted to upload the pics, but impossible for the moment, net too busy.
So you have to check my flickr account for the moment
By the way, as you can see in my sidebar, I joined this give-away hosted by Katy. See you on february 4th overhere for more details.
Update on february 2nd (as it was possible to add the pics, ;o))))
this is my ongoing project for the 4SQS5, it's a personal creation
you know I'm not too much into brown, but what can you do when this is one of your partners preferences
the project has to be monochrome, you only have the right to add some white or black
think mine is ok for these restrictions
as a follower of Linda's and Becky's blog I had to take this opportunity, you can read the post about this block overhere
Have to hurry, as they need a pic of the completed quilt by the end of february
this is also my own creation based on Gee's Bend quilts
it's a mini, about 8 x 12" I think
the name is Pyjama party as I have used only old (even some very, very old) fabrics
the pale blue ones are from my childhood duvets and the one with the roses my mum used for sewing me a pyjama (that's where the name comes from, ;o)))
the striped one is a very old thick fabric that was used for my mums pillows (filled with buckwheat)
and the yellow/white, also a very old one, an upholstery fabric used for the strawfilled bed bases, sorry but I don't know how you call these exactly (at some spots you can even see the rust marks of the nails)
it is handpieced and freecut, only the quilting was done by machine, as some of the fabrics are really thick
TADAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, and now to the first hint for my give-away on wednesday
I created this quilt pattern this weekend and a copy will be added to my stash fabrics
More information on february 4th
