‘Milla’s Quilt

Milla’s Quilt
My pattern for Milla’s Quilt is a project in the current issue of Quilters Companion Magazine #112.
It is a quick and easy design using a charm pack, all raw edge appliqué using machine blanket stitch, with simple quilting. A lovely cot quilt for the little one in your family.

More Playing with my Inktense Pencils

I decided to make some placemats for Christmas Gifts, colouring the design with my Inktense Pencils.

I used a cream cotton for the background so that the subtle cross hatch pattern on the fabric showed through the image. The design is outline quilted in black thread, then free motion quilted with a cream in the background. The black outline quilting can be clearly seen in the back of the placemats.

I added some small dots of silver ’bling’ using a pearlescent fabric paint to the tips of the gum blossom and flower centre.

I am really happy with the finished results and found a perfect green fabric in my stash for the binding.
