Quiltie Quandary

Some of my first quiltie attempts - all made with hand dyed cotton, some are hand stitched, some machined and some with fme as well. The colours look a bit washed out due to my stunning photographic capabilities (!) but they look okay in the flesh. They are kinda simple in style, but I like them that way:)





Since I had never made any fabric ATCs before, I had a go at some of them too.
One of the quilties and an ATC have been posted off as part of a swap I joined in with (I hope my swapee likes them) and another quiltie/ATC have gone to Mavis - just because she is lovely. It was quite fun to do them but now I will have to think of another 'style' to try out. The 'quandary' part of my title was because it took me ages to decide which ones to send and in the end Miss Lucy decided for me!

I've just put my name down for a 'quiltie' swap - something I've not made before, but if they look as good as yours I will be well pleased. I particularly like the fourth quiltie down. I'm sure your swapees will love them.

You don't think your going to get away with making such gorgeous ATC's and not swap with yours truly do you?!!!?
They are fantastic...do you want to swap?

Sue these are so lovely, and I love the mix of some hand and some machine quilting - what prowess! Val

Sarah Nopp said...

I think your quilties look wonderful. I have a hard time completing little things... rather I have a hard time starting, because I am afraid of how badly I will mess it up!
But your are inspiring me. I am going to gop and try my inchies again. No Throwing across the room this time LOL

Simple designs are sometimes the best....and these are proof of that! I think they're great. My quandary would be to choose a favorite!!
