Jingle Bells bunting and all

father christmas soft focus

The weekend was busy and ever so cold, the fair was fun and thank you to everyone who popped by to say hello.  I had fun making all the bunting and decided to put the left over items from the fair on Ebay and will be posting more over the week and in my Etsy shop.  The bells have a wonderful deep jingle and sound so festive!  Going over all the speed bumps was fun in my little motor, sounded like I was pulling a sleigh!

Merry Christmas Gingerbread focus

So if your looking for some festive bunting to decorate your home, do pop over and have a look.

Quilting inspiration | Red & White

red and white seattle swap blocksThis year my quilt guild has entered a few inter Guild swaps, we decided to swap blocks and chose red and white as a common theme.  So eventually we could use the blocks to make a quilt for ourselves or for charity.  Above are my swap blocks from 2 lovely ladies in the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild.  I love red and white together, there is a new book I saw on Amazon called Red & White Quilts: infinite varieties: presented by the american folk arts museum and have it on my wish list.  Its a catalogue of the Park Avenue Armory exhibition, showcasing the collection of Joanna S. Rose.

red and white welsh quilt

I thought I’d share some of my favorite quilts from my pintrest board, above is an antique Welsh quilt dating back to 1880’s.  The simple lines, in red & white with impeccable quilting, perfect simplicity.  Below is an antique Amish quilt.

amish red and white quiltSome people believe that Welsh quilts may have inspired the Amish when they first settled near Welsh communities in Pennsylvania.
