Edita Sitar wall hanging from her Craftsy Course

I love Craftsy and I love learning new skills and techniques. This week I enrolled on a course on Craftsy by Edita Sitar called Garden of Quilted Possibilities. Wow! I could listen to her talking for hours, such a lovely voice and accent.

My parents are moving house soon so I decided to make a wall hanger/table runner with the word ‘home’ on using the templates and instructions from Edita’s tutorial. I chose floral chintzy fabrics as my mum will like that sort of thing (sorry Dad! You get what your given!).

So easy to follow and construct. The hardest part was setting my machine up for free motion quilting. I hate adjusting tensions! Then I feel so much pressure to get it right and neat plus making sure the back doesn’t get all puckered. I realised after about 5 minutes of quilting that I was so tense I kept forgetting to breath.

Well here it is all finished. I left the lettered unquilted as I thought they popped out more.

I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in appliqué and quilting.



Feeling a bit festive

I know it’s only September but the other evening a felt all festive! There was a Ho Ho Ho going on and I felt the need to start Christmas crafting, do I made a bookmark!

I love working with felt and it was a nice and relaxing project to make.

Am I the only one to start festive crafting?
