Vintage Turnovers….a finish!
Ta Dah!!!! What do you think? I’m very happy with my take on the Vintage Turnover pattern I found here. I managed to finish it at our Guild’s UFO weekend to attack our stashes of UFO’s in preparation for our biennial Quilt Show at the end of July. My gorgeous friend Dawn helped me by stippling this beauty and I finished it by quilting the flowers and binding…..I’m sooooo happy with how it turned out! I don’t know if you can see the spiral quilting in the flower centre but if you squint and hold your tongue the right way, you just might!!! A nice, bright yellow for the binding…. ….and my very own touch for the border A pieced backing which is lovely and crinkly AND very snuggable! A real girly-girl ‘pretty’ that will hold its own in a very male – oriented home! *hee hee hee*……Girls unite! I’ve also been working on my ‘Raggedy Friends’ quilt which is nearing the flimsy stage…..just one block to go and some sashing and borders, which should be done by the weekend…..and no, I haven’t taken any photos yet!!!…..sorry! I do have one other finish but because it’s winging its way south, I can’t divulge too much but I can give you a little sneaky….. I told you it was sneaky…this could be A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!!! You’ll just have to wait and see! Hope your weekend was full of crafty finishes too *wink*! sugary hugs Wendy :0)
