Long term hand project

I have been having trouble loading pictures on my computer, but I think I have it resolved for now. Just a quick post to share a long term EPP/appliqué project I have started with Jen Kingwell’s Gardenvale fabric line. I love all of Jen’s patterns and recently she did a video using these chubby dresdens and I thought they would be fun to try.

The dresdens are her line, the stripe is Michael Miller clown stripe and the centers are Kona cottons. I plan on 65 of these and then we’ll see what other ideas come into play. I like having hand work for nighttime when I watch Netflix and relax. I am going to be calling the finished quilt “Gardenvale Blossoms”.

Daisy Hedgehog Pattern

A little while ago Jennifer Heynen, aka Jennifer Jangles, asked for volunteers to make some of her new patterns and share our experiences. I signed up right away! When I first started on this fabric journey she was one of the first designers who caught my eye and I used to drool over her pieces regularly. I got chosen to make Daisy Hedgehog and boy is she a cutie!

I gathered my supplies and got to work! Everything was well explained in the pattern so it was nice not to have to worry too much.

Please ignore my dirty ironing board cover LOL! It was nice to have a valid excuse to use my favourite colour brown in something.

This was the great nose decision of 2015. It ended with the beige/pink one up top after a community poll on IG.
