Peace on Earth by Blackbird Designs – stitched with GAST and Weeks on 30ct Sheep’s Straw by R&R
Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast! In this episode I share my contribution to Quilts for Peace, a few little finishes, some birthday stash enhancement, and progress on my WIPs.
Sewed the binding on a Quilts for Peace quilt (not my quilt, I only did the binding)
Perching from the Blackbird Designs’ Mary Ann Blackburn booklet (Loose Feathers Spring 2012) – on 36ct Lakeside Linens Vintage Meadow Rue with the called for Classic Colorworks and GAST threads with one exception – I substituted the two leaves charted in GAST Toasted Barley with a brighter green DMC. Finished into a pincushion filled with crushed walnut shells as a coordinating piece to go with the Spring’s Song box (also in the same booklet) shared in this post.
Honeysuckle Vine Stocking from the Blackbird Designs’ Glorious June booklet – on 40ct Picture This Plus Dill with the called for Classic Colorworks threads and the DMC substitute for Weeks Honeysuckle.
WIP Minders – I shared mine made from Cotton + Steel August fabrics, but I also made two more out of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I used this tutorial to make them but used sew on snaps instead of the KAM snaps. If I had to do it again, I would use the KAM.
Anniversaries of the Heart by Blackbird Designs – I’m currently on the July block called Swan Lake; stitched on 40ct Vintage Examplar by Lakeside Linens with the called for GAST and Crescent Colors threads
Primitive Wizard of Oz by Midsummer Night Designs – 40ct Gander linen with Crescent Colors (Classic Colorworks), DMC, and Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid (instead of the called for Kreinik) and substituted the green Crescent Colors for Weeks Emerald
