It´s Wednesday again, and I want to show you my new project.
My friend Martha from Q is for Quilter and me both want to sew a quilt like this in a little Quilt-a-Long. I found the picture of the antique quilt here at nebraskahistory.org some time ago and fell in love with it.
I´ll do my quilt in 1930s reproduction fabrics and Martha will use vintage fabrics from this time period. Here you can see her first two beautiful stars!
Everybody is welcome to join us in sewing this beauty! :-)
Here are my first finished stars and flowers. I had some time to hand sew during the last week, because I have a bad cold and all I can do is sit on the sofa, watch TV and stitch the little hexies together.
I tried a bit of fussy cutting on this blue and pink star.
And this is my little "hospital flower" because I sewed it yesterday while I had to wait in hospital when Michael got a little hand surgery after an accident with a saw at work. The nerve of his left little finger was damaged and had to be repaired.
Thanks god he´s quite fine now and was able to come home with me yesterday afternoon.
Now I´ll go back to my blanket on the sofa. Sorry for all of you who are waiting for an answer from me, I promise to come back as soon as I´m better! But it´s quite cold here at the computer and at the moment it´s not my favorite place.
