Santa's Sidevcar Stocking - 4

I'm still working on Santa's Sidecar Stocking most nights in-between working on quilting/patchwork projects. It is such a happy stocking.

Apologies, it has been a while since I last posted on Santa's Sidecar Stocking, but it is progressing... I am loving all the bright colours.

Santa's Sidecar Stocking

I've started another stocking for a baby who's due in  August...

 It's called Santa's Sidecar Stocking and I think it is a Dimensions kit.

Here is where I'm up to after a few nights of stitching.
And I need to get a move on with this as I just found out a girl at work is also due in August so I need to get one done for her as well!

Christmas Quilt

A Christmas quilt I decided to make after purchasing 5 fat quarters at a great price is finally finished and on display in my theological library. It doesn't use contemporary Christmas colours, but looks great.
It was a free pattern found at: http://www.gigisthimble.com/2017/07/five-fat-quarter-fun-rustic-pines.html?m=1&fbclid=IwAR30f-38Z1IMPXU9MahAqp7DdgJi19A1wup-_u-8A8xv_HRr44ImzlOJtfI

 Love how it turned out, although it is significantly bigger than I had imagined!

Quilting finishes

 A few of my recent patchworking finishes...

This is a disappearing 4 patch done in the fun and done quilt as you go method. I really enjoyed this method as it came together quite quickly. It is a little fiddly to match up the seams, but I like the effect. It has a flannelette sheet on the back so it is very soft.


 This one is done with the first jelly roll I've ever had. I found a pattern online but I can't remember the name of it, plus I did alter a few things to suit my tastes. It is also the first quilt I've had professionally quilted and I love how the circles interact with the straight lines of the design.


This one is a disappearing nine patch and I'm donating it to a charity that gives quilts to children in hospital. It is super bright and will hopefully brighten a kids day. It has a flannelette sheet on the back so it is super soft and snuggly.

I also got the following Christmas ornaments finished. They were a gift from the Fig'n'Berry Stitching Soiree held in Monbulk (Victoria, Australia). They are super cute - I really like how the thread colour seamlessly changes as you stitch. They use Cottage Garden threads.
