Top finished !!

I totaly forgot to update my blog, because I finished my top of my quilt: Roses from the past last thursday. I have beginning quilting on the roses and leaves. in the original quilt there was embroidery on the roses and leaves but when I had done that, I didn't like it so ..... I took al the threads out and don't put any embroidery onit. No I'm going to quilt the roses and leaves and I find it much more nicer. I haven't a picture of it but I do have a picture of how my top looks now it is ready.

On a Dutch yahoogroup we always have in november the wishlist. On that list you can write a few wishes and hopefully someone will fulfill one wish of that list. I ask for a primitive pincushion, not too much with a christmas theme, just a little bit because we don't celebrate christmas but we celebrate Yule (dec 21th) !!
Simone had make me a beautiful pincushion and she added some little bells at the corners and that is christmas enough for me :-)

On the back a beautiful piece of fabric from Red Rooster.

  7. Beautiful quilt, lovely pincushion, and I hope you will tell us a bit more about Yule (as distinct from Christmas)! I think often people consider Yule to be another word for Christmas.

  9. What a great pincushion.
    I would love to celebrate Yule instaed of Christmas as I always feel a fraud on Dec 25.My mum however is a preacher so I tend to fall in with her wishes rather than cause a family row.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx
