Colour Study and Annie






Two very different projects finished this week that I mentioned on Podcast Episode 13.

The wall hanging is made from the fat quarter I bought last weekend. It's densely quilted in stipples and circles. It was really fun to make, and I even kinda like the back (see Flickr for more detailed shots). It's not perfect, but I love it anyhow. It's going to hang in my living room.

The doll is the 2001 panel project I found in my fabric stash. I love how she turned out. The hair was a pain in the rear, but worth it for the final effect. So I didn't have to publish her nude, I found that little dress at the thrift store for $1.50 - I think it's perfect!

Hope you're having a crafty long weekend!

That quilt is absolutely perfect for your living room! Love it!
I can't believe how awesome Annie's hair turned out! My Annie is still in pieces...I even stuffed her into a container so I don't have to look at her unfinished self all day! I've been working on bibs all weekend. Check my blog tomorrow for pics!

I love the color study quilt, it's so gorgeous. Is it machine appliqued?

Thanks, all. The best part of that quilt is that it's a printed fat quarter from AH. No piecing at all! It's machine-quilted with threads that match each circle.
