Almost there

This week, I am definitely trying to finish up the Neighbourhood quilt. I am about 3/4 of the way through quilting.


I am using the sunshine variegated Aurifil thread out of the Tula Pink Kit (#4658) to add some interest. I think it is looking good, those Oakshott Cottons look great!!Close-up Quilting_Neighbourhood

For my Cherie quilt, I picked out the Cherie fabrics from Frances Newcombe’s line. I want the quilt to be mostly made of the neutral fabrics with a slight pop of pink (like in the design, see link in the table).

So, last night while watching TV, I started laying out the initial blocks for the Quilt. Cherie_StartThat’s it for this week. Apologies for the photo’s…it has been raining here all day and the light has been terrible for photo’s.

Linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.

    I like how that Cherie quilt is going – the faces look pretty awesome, peeking through like that.

    I really like that yellow variegated thread. From a distance it adds such a subtle layer of colour over it. Are you using a walking foot for the quilting? It looks really crisp and wonderful, in any case. (My earliest attempts with a walking foot were never very good, but I’m hoping the one that came with the new/old machine will do a better job of things!)
