Pram quilt
I had these saltire blocks left over from a cot size quilt I was working on and had laid them aside to await inspiration. When I heard of a new addition that friends had, I saw a use for the blocks. Teamed with some designer cashmere/cotton plaid fabric and the addition of a bear applique it made the perfect quilt for a pram or baby carrier. No mistaking this wee ones Nationlity.

Christmas is coming

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Now that October is nearly over our thoughts are starting to turn to Christmas.

Over the past couple of years I have been using a lovely traditional Christmas alphabet fabric to make different items. This year I have used the last of it to make an heirloom advent quilted wallhanging and a bell pull style wallhanging.

Heirloom AdventEach picture on the advent is a pocket for you to put in items of your choice. Small gifts, chocolate bars, animal treats dependent on who lives in the house. Instead of opening doors on the advent numbered 1 to 25, you start at the letter A and get a small surprise each day. As I made this from my own pattern with fabrics from my stash you will never find another advent the same as this one.

christmas-alphabet-bellpull-1The Bell pull hanging used up the last of the Christmas alphabet fabric. I bordered it with a deep burgundy cotton fabric with gold stara stamped all over it. It hangs on a pine coloured dowling with matchind wooden beads on each end. It is finished off with a long burgundy tassle.

Both items can be found in my shop at Misi  the heirloom advent  the bell pull hanging
