Quilts on Quilts .....

The latest addition to Melody's penny rug has been an autumn tree and some mini quilts on a line


these are the little quilts that I pieced together
the house is 3" square (23 pieces) whilst the scrappy squares is about 4" (72 pieces)
there is a mistake in the scrappy one - can you spot it?

this little village is growing nicely - I wonder what will be next?

The links to the blocks can be found on Melody's blog in the sidebar... I look forward to each new section

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have neglected showing my trapunto blocks but I have been working hard on them ....

it feels like each block is a little quilt on its own


I have played with various filler options....


some work better than others...


it's all practice... 

Close ups of the blocks I have shown before can be seen HERE and HERE

The tight filling makes for quite a firm quilt... each block will be trimmed to 15".....


the blocks need to be trimmed, then sashed together and there is a wide border with a pretty rope quilting to be done on it....  

This has been a great way to develop free motion skills - small pieces to work on at a time and even with not so perfect stitching the effect is still workable

some of these designs will be great to use on quilts - I love the feather circle

the lines were done using my walking foot... a friend of mine has done the majority of her work including the outline of all the shapes using her walking foot

Righto, Gotto Go.... some instructions to read... some sashing to slice

OMG Fiona! I am in love with your trapunto blocks! Absolutely beautiful. If your little scrappy quilt has a mistake in it I am certainly not looking for it, I think you are very brave to even attempt something as small as that. Hugs

Your trapunto is amazing - Had to0 look very hard to see "a mistake" - maybe 2 pieces the same on the right hand side - but I had to search - and make the picture larger. Such patience!!

That is so very intricate and will make a beautiful quilt....I like the little rug, too. Was the mistake that two of the squares that abutted each other were from the same material...over on the right side?
That little clothes line with the quilts is so cute...Is it getting to be winter over there? We're coming into HOT weather, here.
