BRIMFIELD PROGRESS

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all having an enjoyably creative day. I spent the last week or so working on my Brimfield quilt project. I finish all the fine hand stitching securing the EPP pieces to the background. And this morning, I trimmed all the blocks to 14-1/2” square …..

And then went on to joining all the blocks together and added some borders …..

I have been on a no purchase kick by trying to use up what I’ve got in my stash but for this one, I feel I need a nice backing because I’m going to hand quilt it. So, now I’m going to put it in the UFO pile until such time as I have saved up a few pennies to buy a nice backing fabric.

Now that I have finished piecing Brimfield I will be needing to start another hand sewing project. I like to have something to work on in the evening. I’m not sure that I have any hand sewing in my UFOs. I have designed a new project; well the drawings and layout are complete. I’ll be tracing the patches onto to freezer paper or fusible web and getting started on that soon but that’s a daytime project. So, it looks like I’ll be turning to hexies once again. I think a scrappy one using up all the small scraps I have accumulated from projects pieced over the last few years would be liberating. No worries about where to place what colour/print would make a nice change. I’ll let you know how it all works out.

Well, my lovely friends, I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching.

    1. Hiya Sandra, I received my backing fabric as a gift yesterday. So, I layered up the Brimfield today in readiness for hand quilting sometime in the near future. The Row quilt will be machined quilted on my domestic. Thanks for popping in today x
