I chose to make the Sweet Pea quilt from Camilla Roskelley's book Simplify, mainly because I fancied doing the scalloped bias binding. Here's the start
Made from the orphan fabrics left over when the Farmers wife copped it, hence the name Pheonix, rising from the ashes.
I had a bit of trouble with the tape when I was trying to baste it. The tape must be getting a bit old and just would not hold.
The wandering daisy print didn't turn out quite the success I hoped for
It's lovely on the white and yellow, but lost in the middle. And it turned out to be more of a wonky daisy than wandering!
And here it is blowing in the breeze
The biais binding on the scalloped edges was a bit tricky but I can tick something else off the "learning new things" list
So today this will hopefully get posted off to Manchester to it's new life. I'm quite pleased with it - when I started it, I didn't know it was for a girl, but by the time I did the binding I knew, so I picked out more pink colours. I think the end result is very girly, in fact it's a bit to pretty,pretty for my tastes, but I know it will be appreciated and loved. And that's all that counts!
And because it's WIP Wednesday, I can tell you that the only other progress that's been made is my sample swaps for the FQ Retreat. They're almost finished and I'll post the results in a day or two.
All other projects: No progress other than they moved from the upstairs bedroom back to the dining room, af you call that progress!
So now you can hop over to Lee's WIP to see what the others are up to.
