I finally finished and got in the post the mini I was making for Katrina, the April baby, from our Australian Handmade Birthday Club.
This was my first foray into EPP and I can really see how my stitching progressed as I went along.
I made this with an AMH charm pack I had bought as I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about. As I sewed it together, I'll admit I didn't really get it (don't shoot me). There were prints individually that I loved, but all together... It was visually how I feel about Florence and the Machine, ok in pieces but a whole album is too much.
At least that's what I thought I thought. However, there was something about quilting the mini up that seemed to bring everything together and simmer down the "too muchness". I don't know. At the end of the day I found it quite hard to part with, so I guess that's telling.
I made a border out of plain white and white on white prints, predominantly Alison Glass and bound and backed it in some AMH I bought from Peppermint Stitches.
So here are the stats:
Quilt: AMH Mini Hexi quilt
Size:18" x 21"
Fabric: Dowry by Anna Maria Horner
Backing: Maybe in Indigo from Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner
Binding: Woodcut in Sassblue from Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner
Quilting: diamond crosshatch in yellow Aurifil 50wt (from Jeni Baker's Favorite Things Box)
