Staying with my daughter last week. My grandson has a 6th birthday coming up in May. You might be able to guess that the theme is The BFG. Spent a day making BFG bean bags for the games and goodie bag to take home! For around 25 of his closest friends.........
I made 37 in the end!
I have finished my one-off quilt about my trip to Cape Verde. I had a few things to consider when putting it together. One was the background. I wanted to somehow suggest the ripples in the sand after the waves have gone, so I made a fairly simple stencil and printed with that. Then I stitched fairly randomly over it.
Lots more stitching on the sea too and more place names, then it was a matter of working out where to place the postcards to make a pleasing picture.
The finished quilt. Not the best photo - it does hang straight!
It had it's first outing last night to a talk I gave to a delightful group called Churchdown Quilters.
I love textiles and especially quilting.
