In a craft facebook group, we have started a CAL that will be going for approx six months. First section was seven granny squares. I chose to use up the left over 10ply wool from Bendigo that I used for Froggy and also another project that I have currently on the go, and ordered a few more colours to add to it. Here are my first seven squares along to go with the quilt top for the daughter I am making both for.
Colours from the Bendigo Luxury range in 10ply used:
Ruby, Leaf, Denim, Cream, Aquarium, Navy Blue, Lake, Autumn Glow and Koala.
I actually didn't use any Autumn Glow in the granny squares. I only used Ruby, as I wanted the squares to be more blue then red. Autumn Glow will appear in some of the other sections. Such nice wool to work with!
I like adding stuffing pellets. It gives a bit of weight and makes it sit nicely. I have had that they sometimes find their way out through the little gaps, especially if forced. This time I added a sack of stuffing pellets that was stitched closed.
Another post coming soon with some (very cute!) photos of a completed and happy froggy.
A little bit of sewing from last week. Some Dr Seuss bunting, especially made for two little boys born. I knew their mum had sewn Dr Seuss play quilts while she waited for her unborn twins. With smallish amounts of fabric left over from the Dr Seuss floor pillows it was just enough for bunting.
Another giraffe. Zebi is very well loved in this house, and I just couldn't resist making another one. This time I used a variegated yarn - Stripped Effect by Carnival. It worked up a lot easier and no colour ugly changes going up the back of each piece.
After finishing it, I quickly managed to sneak in a few photo moments of her before she was squashed into a suitcase and traveled to the other side of the world to a little niece.
