The glazing in turquoise turned out really well. I loved it when they came out of the oven.
stud to close the bag.
It worked out really well.
They bags are both from the same pattern by FacileCécile and look very different don't you think?
This quilt is all about strips, different width, mostly pink, grey, light blue and some red, bike fabric and dachshund fabric, all from my stash.
It took me a couple of days to machine quilt this big one. I wrote about making the top here . I didn't think it was that long ago I started this quilttop...so glad I finally decided to finish it!

This medallion quilt just started with the teddy bears square in the middle and grew bigger without a plan or pattern, round after round. So much fun to make!!!! My goal was to use up lots of old fabrics.
My hand made teddy bear is fitting right into this colour scheme ;)
Fabrics mostly from the 90's with snowmen, 'wild' animals,
Gwen Marston uses in her quilts.
Old Debbie Mumm fabrics,
The quilting is done with crocheting cotton nr 5 in big stitches,
I hope this will be the start of a lot of finishes to come this year!!!!!!!!!!!
