Playing with fabric beads and border designs … a project file dedicated to making the String of Beads go around the corners nicely!

Love it!

Beaded Blocks and Borders 14

Beaded Blocks and Borders 14

 

Very pretty and dainty.

First day of spring in Australia.

Looks like being a wet day!

The various shades of gold and yellow wattle (acacias) are starting to look a bit brown around the edges … the date on the calendar means nothing to them. They like to get in early, but my first freesia was only two days early!

Red and White 2 block Quilts 91

The end of this series is just 28 designs away.

I am getting enthused to start another series with a different set of 9 Patch blocks, but also want to get this lot out of the way before I start playing.

Red and White Quilts 34

There are some very interesting little things happening where blocks meet around the centre.

Could be interesting to use some background colour changes to emphasize them!

A rather busy collection of blocks, but I think I like it.

Applique Logs 46, 47, 48, 49 and 50

Applque Logs 46

Opening up this series was like finding some long lost friends. Love these designs.

Applque Logs 47

I particularly love the one above!

Applque Logs 48

I might be tempted to have a little play  now I have it open, to see if I can add anything new.

Applque Logs 49

The applique designs could be varied a lot … perhaps I will add some new ones to the mix.

Applque Logs 50

Then again, don’t want to fix something that isn’t broken!

9 Patch ‘n’ Apps 7×7 1

9 Patch 'n' Apps 7x7 1

Some basic Nine Patch blocks with some added applique.

Big enough for a queen size bed if you use 12 inch blocks, a throw quilt if you use 9 inch blocks. Probably not a suitable design for anything smaller … except maybe to hang on a wall. (I tend to forget wall quilts as I have more than enough to fill empty spaces between windows and doors. Perhaps I could just cover some of them up!)
