Friday finishes!

This week I found a free pattern and of course I had to try it. It is a design by a site called Imanufatti. It is in a foreign language, but her instructions and pattern are easy to follow. She has a lot of other tutorials, I will have to check out the rest of her blog when I have a chance.

These would be fun to make up for bowl fillers, to give away or the kids. I made a couple up in a day. I also took the pattern and made it into one shape, instead of separate ears and tail. I was thinking of doing a few more for the boys with a little heart, instead of flowers.

I used a piece of old felt that I had over dyed with yellow. It has a nice mottled and fluffy feel, since I washed it a few times.

I also finished 8 more blocks for my Christmas stocking quilt. If I add three more to the side, it measures 35" x 54". I will pick three new colors for variety and then sew them together. That way I can see how the size fits and how much more I need to add. I don't plan on making a border, just a regular binding on this one. I want it to hang over a rail or couch and still be used, so big enough to be a large lap quilt.

This is such a fun quilt to do, great way to use up scraps and it works up quickly. I am still debating on wether to machine or hand quilt it. Something simple and maybe a good project to take camping, I find hand quilting, very relaxing.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend. Bill has to work again and it is going to be cold, so I am hoping my crackle comes in tomorrow and I can finish my angel painting.

Those bunnies turned out so sweet. I had a brainy idea as I was reading. If you make some for the boys you could leave an opening in the back and "stuff" them with treats. (If they are allowed😊) I like how you did all one piece. Thanks for the link. Happy Friday.

Those bunnies are adorable, and the stockings are marching right along too. I think I am more relaxed when my hand have work to do.

Bunnies are cute and the quilt is going to be wonderful. I need to do some sewing on my star quilt as it has been months. Stopped to cut more pieces and now I've no excuse. I also don't know if I'll hand or machine quilt mine when done.
