I promised my daughter in law a very special quilt for my newest grandaughter. She already has a 'Tummy time ' play quilt but didn't have something really beautiful to welcome her into the world.
Today I finished the ''canvas'''.
The quilt is to be called 'Ediths House'.
My son and his wife have a detached Victorian house in London so I made a rough lookalike to go in the middle.
I made a paper template so I can judge the placement.
Tomorrow I'll start on the applique, no firm plans yet, we'll see how it evolves....
I've looked back in my photo files and found a few pics of some of the details on Freyas quilt, it was all in very soft pinks and white so not east to photograph It's been folded too so excuse some creasing.
I used the piecing as the base to stitch and embroider.
There are birds and dragonflies,
Flowers in a vase....
and daisies in a row.
I'm anxious to start tomorrow adding to 'Ediths house'.
I'll keep you updated.
My Christmas Quilt isn't finished yet and is waiting patiently to be stitched but ''so many quilts, so little time''!!!!
