I seem to have a lot on the go at the moment, lots of pots simmering, but nothing ready cooked.
I am quilting another Fairy Tale Star Quilt, this time made by my Mother. When I finished the first one, I still had lots of fabric left, so I passed them, and my hastily-scribbled-up pattern on to Mum, who has remade it with a few more fabrics, and an extra border.
Together we are making this for my cousin’s new baby girl in the USA. I am really happy with the curly-scroll quilting around the edges of the pieced stars.
I have also been making another “Teacher Thank You”, prepping it for stitching. I know it is a funny time to start one of these, being the very start of the academic year, but this time I am making it up again to write up the pattern. Each time I have made it, I have tweaked it further, and this time I am writing down all the colours I am using, both for the pencils and for the embroidery floss. This time I hope to make it with plenty of time to photograph it for a pattern cover!
Monster Chef is another project on the boil. I have written a first draft of the pattern, and have purchased some more fabrics to make up some more monster friends. I still have to draw up some diagrams, and I will make copious notes on the draft as I make more of these guys, but I hope to have the pattern ready for some volunteer testers soon.
What have you got simmering along?
