Stitching and Quilting~

I’ve finished stitching Two Shall Be As One a couple days ago, and to not totally spoil the surprise, here is a sneak peak of the finished piece~

Pattern: Lizzie Kate “Two Shall Be As One”
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 32ct Belfast linen in color “Flay”
Size: 9.5" x 5.5"
Beginning Date: 06-24-2009
Completion Date: 07-29-2009

Instead of using the charms it called for in the chart, I used a heart shape button between the names. I think the whole thing turned out nicely!! I also like the little flowers a lot!! I think those colors are just perfect!! All I need to do now is finding a perfect frame for it and then sending it off to the love birds~

I’ve also worked on a quilt that I’ve started like a year ago!!!!! It has been sitting in the bottom of my chest for quite a while, and thanks for Phoebe, it finally is seeing some light again~ Phoebe has been teaching me how to hand quilt it. Although my stitches are not perfect, I’m starting to get the hang of it!!! I’ve only quilted four blocks so far, and I’m sure it will take me many more month to finish it, but at least I’m making some progress on this.

Now that I’ve learned how to hand quilt, I truly felt every quilt is such a treasure!!! You have to devote so much time onto it, and it takes a lot to finish a piece. Just take a look at Phoebe’s Baltimore Bunnies she finished the other day!! It is truly amazing!!!!

Well, that’s all for now. I’m be taking a vacation next week so I’ll be disappearing for a while. Now let’s see which new project should I take with me on the trip……

Have a great weekend, everyone~~

  8. Both pieces are lovely. I like the colours you used on your quilt. I like piecing together but the quilting part is my down fall, hence, very little in the way of finishing quilts!

    Have a lovely vacation, Theresa!
