Where We Love is Home Quilt

Today's pincushion was made a few years back but is still a firm favourite .... I tend to have a pincushion for each project I am working on  ..... somewhere to place my needle and thread and any pins I might be using ..... it's nice to remember the time it was made and appreciate the work that went into it ....


I love the colours in this pincushion and enjoyed the fiddly process of weaving the threads to make each diamond stand out ..... this is where my pins are placed today !


Yesterday I had a lovely day in  my sewing room .... it doesn't happen very often that I have an uninterrupted day of sewing .... so I got to work on putting together the next block in my "Where We Love Is Home" quilt .....   I have appliquéd my designs rather than needle turning them .... I like the texture and simplicity of blanket stitching .....   here is the butterfly block before the addition of the pieced blocks .....



And then the pieced blocks were added ......


I loved stitching the "My Neighbourhood" block ..... all the houses and the orange flowers were lovely to spend time on ..... there is quite a lot of stitching in this quilt too which I love .....


And the finished piece with the added blocks on each end of it .....


Loving the bright colours and enjoying seeing this come together .....
