This and that

I have spent quite some time at the sewing machine this week, working on this and that. Mainly on the Aussie quilt for Hugo; I finished all the blocks (20) and am now sewing them together. This weekend I am going to buy the batting and backing. I think I will use the world map fabric for the back, like I did on Ernst's I Spy quilt.



This is Hugo's last week at school before the summer holidays, so we had to have a present for his Prep teacher. Remember the fabric that he painted? I made it into a giant card (or mini wall hanging) with Fast2Fuse:



The teacher really liked it!
And last but not least, I made some Christmas decorations using Christmas themed selvedge strips - inspired by a posting on the Selvage Blog.They are for my 'mortal' and have been sent in the last present for this year. My identity is revealed now, so I can show them here.



Now I need to make some postcards and ATCs for a few swaps. And a Brave New World quilt for Around the World in 20 Quilts, using recycled materials. Quite a challenge! (the theme, not the recycling)

Hi Linda,
I love your quilt top, wall hanging, and the selvage ornaments. I'm glad you photographed the wall hanging on your cutting board so we could see how big it is. I was trying to figure it out, then realized I could just count the one-inch squares. That's a great idea to use the world map fabric for the backing for that pretty quilt. I'm about to write a post about your ornaments for the selvage blog! Merry Christmas!

Hoi Linda,
Wat een leuke kerstboompjes, waar die strips al niet goed voor zijn :0)
Fijne zomervakantie!
