I haven't any photos to show for Christmas Day (I know - isn't it terrible! We do have some video though, so all is not lost!), so I thought I'd share a work in progress. I have started another quilt! This time, for me and in pinks and whites....
This is my Union Jack pillow which I finished yesterday. I have wanted to make one for ages and found some fabric that was traditional in colour but still slightly shabby/vintage looking?
The creamy backgorund is Mary Rose and it has little red flowers all over it. I just have to sew around the edges of the second one, then we will have two. I used "Vliesofix" for the strips to make it easier to sew and keep straight, then used blanket stitch on the machine. It was time consuming to do because you have to layer the strips and sew as you go to get a neat finish, but well worth the effort. And yes, I should have made the diagonal strips thinner, but hey!!
We are off to the local pool this afternoon for a swim. The boys want to go to the beach and try out their new "Boggie boards" at some stage too....Aren't Summer holidays great!
