Finally....almost there

In between packing and minding lovely little men I have had a little time to stitch and am so pleased to have Vignette almost done! I put the little squares border on the centre block and then was able to put the first 3 rows together. The bottom row still needs the patchwork outer edge so that will have to wait till I get back from teaching on the cruise....starting tomorrow. Here it is. Can't wait till this one is finished. It is a lovely quilt but it has been a lot of work and I lost my motivation for a while. I haven't allowed myself to start any other BOMs (and I have a few in mind) till this and a few others are done!

Finally ....some progress

 After a long break, I finally put together the last piece of stitching for the Vignette quilt. I have left this quilt 3/4 done and haven't had time or the inclination to continue till now. There is still plenty of patchwork that needs doing but at least I am back working on the quilt.

Mrs Beasley's Sampler

I have finished block one and being I am still not a huge fan of Needleturn Applique
 I have decided to omit some and replace with stitchery.


Here is a closer look of the mini blocks
 



I still need to add something under the word Family 
but will wait to see what else is on the quilt before doing so.

Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt fabrics

Vignette Magazine arrived in Holland last week, and I immediately caved when I saw block 1 of Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt.

I raided my stash, and paid a quick visit to my favourite quilt store to add a few FQ's to the collection. More will be added as I go along.

I spent all evening yesterday cutting all my pieces and pinning them to a scan/print of the pattern. Now I need to choose my threads :o)

Is anyone else working on this project?

It's FINISHED! Whoop whoop!

My Vignette quilt is 100% finished.  It even has a sleeve on it so that it's ready for the next local quilt show.

Here's my blog post with the recap:  http://quiltingismything.wordpress.com/2013/06/01/fabric-vomit-aka-vignette-in-100-completed/

It's been great watching everyone's progress and even though I'm finished, I'll still be checking in to see everyone's amazing work.

Cheers-
Kris

Mrs Beasley's Sampler

I've just been to my LQS and picked up this :o)


I have to go and do Kinder Duty this afternoon 
but knowing these are sitting on my cutting table waiting for me 
when I get home makes me happy.


Thank you Leanne, I am in love with this one already.

Who else is going to be stitching this one?

If you see the post below Perri has a link for the
fabric packs if you are interested.
 
I am looking forward to everyone sharing their progress, both
on this and any of the project in Vignette.

Hugs Sharon
