Happy New Year

I am happy that I'm not going to start the new year with empty hands.

I have this finished epp quilt top waiting to be backed and hand quilted.

And I also have this hand piecing top to be completed.

And since these are both hand sewing projects it also means that I can soon start designing and machine piecing a new project!

And with these thrilling news I'd like to wish you all a very happy and healthy new year. And lots of creativity!

Crux // 8 and last !

Crux is all done! A black and white quilt only. But with still a lot going on in my humble opinion. Difficult to photograph though. Hopefully this pics will convey some of the details that are there to discover. A quiet quilt at first sight but rich with details at a closer look. Be it in the white on white prints, be it within the quilting.

Hand pieced and machine quilted. With only 130 x 100 cm one of my smallest quilts. But one that gave me a lot to think about in terms of design choices.

Lima // 3

Lima is growing. This is the hand sewing project I started during a trip to Lima last August. I started by just sewing these stars. I have almost reached the final amount of stars and meanwhile I also have a plan for the spaces in between and maybe for the borders as well.

I have decided to postpone the hand quilting of Infinity shown in the previous post as I really want to see how my plan will turn out for this top.

Infinity // 1

Last time this wip made an appearance it was still on my design wall. Meanwhile the top is complete and all the papers have been removed. I may even start hand quilting it still this year. But that remains to be seen as I don't have the backing yet.

Stripes I is finished !

I'm very happy with how this quilt turned out. Designing it has been such an enjoyable process and I'm pleased by the result. Of course the happy colors really helped making it fun. I gave myself just a few parameters like always include five stripes each per block and started to improvise. Adding the black and white fabric helped to bring the blocks together visually but also technically where space between blocks needed to be filled. First time I used partial seams when joining blocks and it won't be the last.

This quilt has been machine pieced and machine quilted. It measures 150 x 130 cm.
