My Small World....


We have always enjoyed having some version of art hanging on our walls, but have been a bit slow adding since we repainted the inside of the house.…. more careful I guess and putting up the pictures that we especially like.

However, there is a blank spot in our bedroom.  I used to have a large square quilt hanging but our headboard now partly covers it....

… so that was the reason for the frenzied quilting of My Small World last weekend...


Its bound and ready for hanging now....

I took quite a few pictures.... I played around with the quilting - because it's a hanging it doesn't matter that it is a bit firm....



different textures in the sky.....




I do like the odd little bit of fussy cutting I did..... (there's a tiger in the house!) 


I do like lizards ….

… real cats make my eyes itch... so I got a fabric one instead....


the hills are are alive...... 


I really enjoyed all the different bits to this quilt....


Blocks were made then all of a sudden they all fit together... 


Meanwhile outside my Hoya is going crazy.... every day there is a few more inches along the wires and new buds growing 


the leaves stand up towards the light... so it shows off the flowers hanging down so nicely... 


… and this little basket plant (I have no idea what it's called) is looking so pretty... I love the different shades of green in it 


A bit cooler here at the moment… no real rain but light drizzle.  I am enjoying the cool.

Righto, Gotto Go...  things to do, .....

I like the more muted colors on your Jean Kingwell quilt. Perfect for a bedroom. There’s a couple of her patterns I want to do, but am forcing myself to make a dent in what I have first

Small World is fabulous. Love how you quilted it. The Hoya is doing well. Must love it where you have it. Love the hanging basket plant. Hugs,xx

Janice said...

You've done a beautiful job on My Small World. It will look lovely above your bed. Lucky you to be able to grow a hoya outside. The flowers certainly are stunning. Your new shade area was certainly a good addition to your home.

Oh I do so love your version of My Small World - really motivated to do one...might have to be 2020....maybe I need to organise a few others as well to keep at it.

Your wall hanging is ace, simply stunning, all those little bits and it all goes together so well. The Hoya plant is really doing well. :)

Your Small World is gorgeous! All those beautiful fabrics get along so well and your quilting really complements it. I missed getting the magazine when it was out. I am sure it will look great in your bedroom.

Love your small world, you have done an amazing job of piecing and quilting. I love the detail in the sky especially.
Your Hoya is glorious. It looks like it’s thriving in the perfect spot
