I managed to sew the block together over the weekend. Now to cut the outer border & work out the order of all the 4 inch squares I cut, back to reading the instructions.
I really loved the look of the solar flare quilt, shown on Tula Pinks update, I showed it to Mum & she brought it for me. I haven’t paper foundation paper pieced for a while. It was lovely to get back into it.
This is the first set I made, I soon got back into the swing of folding, cutting & pressing.
So that’s the big square blocks done, on to the smaller ones
These blocks are triangles, so together they make quite nice squares.
So with 4 of each block made, a large quantity of squares cut, 2 from each fabric & some borders cut.
It’s time to start thinking about construction. Time to grab a coffee & read though the next lot of instructions.
A little bit more progress on my English paper piecing project.
This is my 3rd piece for the Royal school of Needlework’s diploma in technical hand embroidery.
Unfortunately due to lockdowns & my health issues, this has been my longest running project on the course, so far.
She is finally starting to take shape. I recently finished her nose, although I still have the highlights to add.
My paper piecing is slowly growing, adding small pentagon next, I’m not sure if I should finish the stars before adding the next bit or just work my way round. I have a while to think about it.
Finished piecing my tumbling blocks quilt, no new fabric purchased😇, so my stash is a little smaller😁.
I’m not a machine quilter, so it has joined the slow lane, of hand quilting.
I’m amazed how much I’ve slowly managed to complete. I hope to push on & finish it soon & another UFO will be complete. 😁
I’ve always fancied making a English paper pieced quilt. Mum brought me a set of curiouser & curiouser fat quarters from Tula pink. Then I spotted her Tula nova quilt & off we go on another hand made adventure.
My Whitework embroidery is finally finished & handed in for assessment. My own design, from my research on traditional Scandinavian patterns. The design is a combination of pulled & drawn thread techniques.
Unfortunately, it became a lockdown casualty, being left cut & the hem started for over a year. I’m overall pleased with it.
All the flowers are done. I really enjoyed this piece. It will be mounted ready for framing at some point.
