Tavern House by Maggie Bonanomi. Every since I first noticed Maggie's work in Need'l Love books I have loved her designs. I enjoyed taking several classes with her at The Buggy Barn. This BOM is through Primitive Gatherings, I love there color choices and of course their wool is always beautiful. I am using a primitive stitch for most of it and adding a few embroidery embelishments that I learned with Sue Spargo this summer.
My newest WIP is a fun flower quilt with wools on homespuns and bushed cottons. I am pulling wools from my stash, which is an adventure and tons of fun finding wools I have forgotten I owned! I have found that you can spend more than a pretty penny on wools and not really have just the right thing, but making do is satisfying. I brought these blocks along with me on our trip and they are pretty quick to stitch up. One night I looked at my block and realized part of the flower was crooked. Soooo a little unsewing and the next day I payed closer attention to details. :)
This is a Christmas quilt by Heart in Hand, it is a BOM through The Buggy Barn. Wools on textured cottons, Diamond Textiles.
I prefer putting wools on a heavier cotton since working with these fabrics, I also love the their texture. The angels eyes are going to be a challenge for me, she needs a more finished look, details always give me a challenge.
Thanks for coming by and seeing what I am up too, blogging has been a wonderful experience. Meeting people with so much creativeness has been a blessing to me.
