Seminole and Scraps

....Nasty bugs have stopped play this last week... again. One of the casualties was a weekend retreat, which unfortunately I had to cancel.So there's not been much crafting going on. This is a piece I made around three weeks ago when the Lovely Ladies from Quiltesk came to show us Seminole patchwork.It measures around 16x28 inches.

 
I wasn't too keen on the wall hanging design they brought along so as usual I did my own thing...one day I will follow the instructions
 
I used scraps of Kaffe Fassett fabrics
 
and added a few embellishments

and a little free style quilting.
and there was some fabulous news... The Quiltesk ladies are taking over our one and only local patchwork shop...a shop which previously I had avoided... now I just have to learn to drive out of my postcode!(sad but true... I hate driving!)

Hi Effie!

I love your little quilt hanging! I wish I could get my joins that neat!!

Good luck with the patchwork shop - ours had to close down, as the young owner became ill due to the dust. She held workshops and did 1 to 1 teaching, and I would have liked to book myself in, but now I can't. It's sad!

Love your wall hanging.
Please continue to take liberties with your projects!
How did you finish the zig zag edge? I love it too.

I like the edge for a child's
quilt so I'll keep that in mind.

I used some of the Seminole patchwork to put an 18inch border on the bottom of a dress I wear only on special times I also have a matching sleeveless top to go with it. It only took me 6months to make it.
