There have been been far too many non-sewing posts round here lately, so instead of going random this Thursday, I have some stitching to show!
Queen Bee in Stitch Tease this month is Ange; with a well thought out colour scheme, and house theme, I selected a nice mansion for my greys and greens.
The paper-piecing pattern is a freebie from Janeen van Niekirk via Craftsy. Janeen is lovely, I couldn't work out the download, so I emailed her and found out the pattern had been corrupted, she emailed me straight back with the new version before getting Craftsy to update her pattern.
The cutting was a chore, as these things always are, but the pattern was really easy to sew. I did all the prep last night, stitched it up in the hour and a half before the school run, and I pulled all the papers whist waiting in the car... oh yes, I'm back!
Ange also requested a figure or animal in the door or window, so I went for the pair of giraffes! The lady has a bit of a crook neck, but with such a long one, that is no surprise!
Some of my seam allowances are a little scant, and a couple are huge, when I forgot to trim, but it mostly turned out just right. I squared it up at the end, and I think it measures c. 12" x 16".
I hope this will fit nicely into the Estate quilt, the respectable end, obviously.
Linking belatedly with Liz's Thursday mularky xxx
