Some finished projects

It has been a while since my last post, but that doesn’t mean it was very quiet over here. Lots of life going on, and lots of projects finally finished. The first I can show is this little quilt.
A few months ago, I was very happy to get the wonderful EQ8, a quilt-design software. I’ve been playing with it a lot and designed the most fabulous quilts, which I’ll never make because they are far too complicated.

But this one is completely made by me. I’ve designed three blocks (which are probably to be found somewhere on the web, but what is the fun about that?), and printed the templates.

Each block is 10”inch , and with the border the quilt measures 22”inches (56 cm).

Then all the pieces were cut and the patchwork done.

After quilting (which is not my forte!) I’ve made the binding and a sleeve to hang the quilt. And maybe you’ve noticed: I did the sleeve on the wrong side, so now the large starblock is on the bottom left instead of on the right.

Then, because winter is over, I finally finished this warm, soft cardigan.

And last but not least a new tunic, made of linen.

The fabric is screenprinted by hand at a Dutch company: Vlinder

The neckline is almost square. You can’t see any stitches, because I understitched it. This gives it a very clean look.

The sleeves have little box pleats.

And because I really wear a scarf every day, I made one from the leftover fabric.

That’s it for now; I’m going to practice on my quilting skills.

Groetjes, Dorien
