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.

We had a visit of Leanne and Gail here at our shop in Northern Norway a few years ago

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?

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:

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.

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

Vignette update

Here is the lower half of the Vignette centre with all the dots stitched! It takes a while but worth it.... I think.

... just wanted to let everyone know, that there has been a little delay with Issue 10 of Vignette's release date.   Hopefully, I will know more in the next couple of weeks and will share the information here when I do...
Have you seen this sneak peak ...
... it has a little information on  the next BOM starting in Issue 10.
There have been a few sneak peaks over on Leanne's Blog and a few on Leanne's  facebook page ... and I have to say, it looks lovely and I am looking forward to starting to stitch this one.
If you would like to know more please contact me and I will be able to help.
Also, a big contratulations to Sharon for finishing her 'Vignette in Stitches' Quilt.
For those that are still stitching this lovley big project, we would love an update on your progress, please share if you wish ...
Happy stitching, Perri

Applique done

 I have completed the applique on the second half of the centre of Vignette. Now to do all those little satin stitch dots!

A little more progress

 I have been working on my needleturn applique on the two other centre blocks. It is time consuming but is coming along well.

A little progress

 Finally felt a little motivated to work on my large ongoing projects and put together the other centre piece for the Vignette quilt. I have decided to just do little bits at a time but try and work on each UFO at least a little each month. Eventually they should then get finished. I feel quite motivated to start the applique now!
Very exciting to see some tops all done! Well done girls. I might get there ONE day.
