The next UFO

I am not ready to show you my whole next project but I have some sneak peaks for you!  I am making a wall hanging of the Four Seasons!  Four girls, each doing something appropriate to one of the seasons.





 This last one is an extra.  It was originally going to be the summer picture but I then decided that it would be nice if all the backgrounds lead into the next one so I changed the plan.  I really like this one though and will use it in another quilt somewhere.
I started these about 18 months ago and then put them aside at Christmas time because I had to concentrate on Christmas.  Now I have brought them out and am all ready to start the sewing and I have to pluck up the courage to get started!  First I need to decide how I am going to applique them, satin stitch or straight stitch, matching threads or something like a grey or a brown.  I need to mull it over for a while and also when I do start sewing I will start with the beach scene and make sure I am happy with the result before I start on the quartet!  The next problem will be how to put all four pictures together - what sort of borders etc but i want to get the stitching done first then I will have a better idea how to go forward. 
I have my quilt group meeting tomorrow and on either side of that, a whole heap of things to do so I am not even going to think about starting more work on these til Thursday or Friday.  that should give the ideas time to percolate but all suggestions would be happily considered. 
Till next time, happy stitching!!!


  1. Love, love, love the fabric choices. Once its finished let me know more details of the designer, what method you are using, the size and the recipient... really appealing !

  2. What a lovely idea. Your blocks look amazing!

  3. Are these your original designs? They are so amazing. I have absolutely no artistic talent for original design.

    I have some of the fabric that you used for the girl's hair, and I have used it in several quilts. I am amazed how the world is so small these days. I live in Arizona in the USA which is kind of on the other side of the world from you.

    Keep up the good work.

  4. They look terrific - I really like the summer one!

  5. The summer one is my favourite too.. love your colour choices!
