Finally an update.

Last night i finally made the last flower in the Vignette hexagon quilt & proceeded to start on the embroidered stepping stones.
My pretty stack of hexies.
flowers in a row
My small start. I'd only traced 15 of the 59 needed for the stones. I think i managed to embroider the leaves on 11 last night. A loooong way to go yet. I'm using Cottage Garden threads for the embroidery rather than Cosmo.

Happy Stitching,

Finally finished

Yes, I finally finished the duvet cover for my daughter Carlota. Just in time for the beginning of spring, flowers appeared all over my little girl's bed. Hope you all like it.
A small detail of the quilting, a very simple one.
She just adores it, and for me that's more than enough.

Please help if you can

I have needed to change my email address associated with my blog. and in the process have had problems.
During the process I changed admin rights and by accident deleted the original admin before the new admin was verified. now I can't access my blog to post. can you help?
Sorry if this isn't the appropriate place but I have been round and round looking for a contact email. I hope someone can help as I am now a follower of my own blog with no access.

Finished sewing hexagons

It's been a long while since I last published. As a matter of fact I was showing you just flowers and now I can show you all my hexagons together. This is going to be a cover for a duvet, so after quilting a little bit I will be adding green fabric on the sides, the same colour as the individual hexagons. Hope you like it. It's going to be for my youngest daughter and she just loves green.
No onto quilting! Next time I show it I hope it's finished.

"La Passion"

Hi everyone,

Almost a year has past ...

Wow, almost a year has passed since my last post on this blog.
So much has happened this last year - so my Vignette Hexagon quilt has not moved along as fast as I thought it would ....

I moved into a new home ... and here I even got my own "Studio" - no longer using the dining room table (well, I still do that too)

I also got married ....
From our wedding day ... 4. August 2012

... but here it is how far along I got on the Hexagon quilt ...
I finally got the top ready:

I got the back ready:
(here I experienced a bit of drama ... I had purchased too little of the back-fabric ... what to do ? - panic ... until I remembered: this is PATCHwork ... I can just add some extra pieces of different fabrics)  :-)

... and now I am handquilting all the "flowers" - "Leanne Style" ... it is taking forever, but it's looking amazing ...

... and the best thing is that I can quilt it, while sitting on the sofa - already covered by this amazing quilt "not yet finished" !

All you other post have been really inspiring ... so here is my small contribution ...

Best regards,
