FNwF January 2023

 First FNwF for 2023 hosted by Cheryll. Thankyou Cheryll for having us again this year.

 I'm taking part in a doll quilt swap so i started my day early by choosing a pattern & fabrics for it.



All cut out ready to sew. I had to take a break after this as standing on one leg is tiring & painful. :)

Years ago i bought the pattern star a day & some fabric to start it but like everything else put it away for another day. I got it out thinking i'd make a start this year but i haven't enough background fabric. It needs 8 metres. I did consider it as an option for the doll quilt, just making enough for a 20" by 20" quilt. Whislt debating if i will make a years worth of stars & therefore needing 8 metres of background fabric i've made a start & have 2 made. :)

They are tiny stars. When finished they will measure 3".

Last night it was back to my embroidery. I'm determined to finish this bom. I think this is block 14 out of 23/24.


 

I stitched the top of the vine, the side under the vine, the top of the pillar box, the bird & started the girl before trundling off to bed.

Pop over here to see who joined in.

Happy Stitching,1

8 meters! That will be a huge finished quilt. Your stitchery is lovely.

Love coin quilts - I use it all the time for baby quilts now.

I think you can probably go with various backgrounds for your star a day just so you don't need to buy so much!

Susan said...

just looked at your pattern again - well maybe not a mixed backing - but its a lovely pattern!

Your doll quilt will be lovely Jeanette. Gosh 8 metres of fabric - that sure is a lot!!! Would be a huge quilt I'm thinking??

Janice said...

That’s a pretty good effort. I think I would be settling for a mini star quilt. That way you have worked on the pattern, but don’t have it hanging over your head.

Pretty. Are those stars hand-sewn?

I saw that pattern and knew I did not have the stamina to do that one. I think 48 is plenty. Sweet embroidery. Time to get all the blocks finished!
