I thought I would share with you my version of a 'Wagga' which has become a memory Quilt along the way.
I am making this for my youngest brother Mark. It is made from a wool blanket as the 'filling'- this belonged to a family friend that passed away years ago. I have also used denim from jeans that were worn by Mark and other family members, pieces from a bedspread that was used by us on our family farm; American fabrics because he loves America; pieces from a shirt that his son Matt wore and shorts that his youngest son Daniel wore; and pieces from a skirt that his mother used to wear!!
Welcome to my blog and very first post. I have been sewing and crafting for many years - my loves are patchwork, quilting and embroidery. A lot of what I make are gifted to family and friends - I just love creating and giving finished items as gifts.
One of my latest quilts is Nature's Journey by Annie Downs - I made a few small changes. After umming and ahhing about what colour themes to make it from I eventually settled on one (after seeking a second opinion from my friend Kerrie at Channelbank Creations).
Thank's for stopping by and visiting my corner of the crafting world. I have ventured into the blog world via Kerrie and Dorothy - and I am looking forward to 'meeting' like minded creative people and participating in some swaps etc - that is when I learn my way around this blogging and posting business!!!lol
