Completed Projects – Quarter 2 2013 Finish-A-Long

S in Eyes Binding

Hi all,

I am delighted to advise  that I have two finishes for the Quarter 2 2013 Finish-A-Long that is being hosted by  Leanne “She Can Quilt” .  I would like to thank Leanne for hosting the Finish-A-Long which has been a huge motivator for me to finish of my projects.  I have loved reading the tutorials, looking at other finishes and checking out the sponsors.  Thanks everyone.   Below are my projects for completion in Quarter 2 FAL followed by photo’s of my finishes. 

1. Wee Village Cushion with appliqued felt and pattern by Wendy Williams.  I had  a few little houses completed.  I needed to prepare the backing, make and embroider the trees and sheep, applique all onto the background fabric of cream linen and grey shot cotton, add some embroidered flowers and sew up the  cushion!  I progressed from HERE………………>

I also chose a lime green spot for the backing fabric.

2. Stars in your Eyes Quilt Sarah Feilke pattern and fabric.  I was hoping to finish  the top and quilt by Q2 and I did!  I added borders of black spot and thick yellow strip, selected the quilt backing using Anna Maria Horner’s  Receiving line, Garden Party.  The quilt was longarm quilted with swirls and binding added.  The quilt measures 62″ x 80″ and approximately 2,840 stitches were added by hand to secure the  binding.  I progressed from  HERE……………>
