June Finish - Susan Oh2Sew

Back in 2011 I took a series of classes designed to make use of the decorative stitches on my sewing machine and to teach various applique methods.
I had a wonderful time playing with threads and fabrics.  I learnt Bobbin work, did some cording, used ric rac.  As is often the case I have changed the original design......

and here is the bobbin work.

Happy Sewing everyone...off to find a July project...which one . . .???

June Finish

I am over the moon with this finish! 
I started this quilt years ago and to have it finished is such a wonderful feeling of satisfaction. 
All the hexies are sewn together by hand. Every piece of fabric is from past projects or been given to me over the years so it is full of memories. 
It is rather large as I wanted it to fit my queen size bed and hang over the four sides as well. 
So happy I can cross this off my list.

May Finish - Susan Oh 2 Sew

Just a small finish for me this this month..and not a long term UFO - but a finish is a finish!!

My bestie gifted me a fat quarter of beautiful gold fabric with houses last year - she knows I have a thing for houses...I started to put it together in February on retreat but didn't get very far....


It's not specifically Christmas but the gold means I will probably use it at Christmas time.

Happy sewing everyone - lets see some more finishes!!!

April Finish - Susan Oh 2 Sew

I have finished my Quilty Fun Sew-a-Long Christmas Quilt.  This was a project from Lori Holt that she ran in 2014 on Instagram - some of the blocks were in her book "Quilty Fun" and some were only on IG.  I didn't do it at the time ...though I bought the book - so thought I'd better make the quilt at least.  I started it sometime in 2014...I think - I really am trying to be more diligent about recording that sort of thing.


Her pattern has a pieced border which I chose not to do and I used a strawberry block from her Farm Girl Vintage book instead of the log cabin block - more appropriate to an Australian Christmas I thought.
