The Hussif - version 2...

In preparation for the epic Hussif tutorial I'll be sharing over five days next week I've made a second version for those of you who prefer patchwork to embroidery.
Using a layer cake of Lecien's "Antique Rose" I chose to fussy cut the sections which featured hand embroidery in my original Hussif (see it here) allowing the fabric to be the star this time round...


Here's a few sneak peeks before my full reveal on Monday...

I still have to add the binding and a few extra 'pretties' but it's only hours away from completion now.
Rather exciting!

I guess you know what I'll be doing today.

What sewing will you be doing this weekend?

  2. That's lovely Jenny. When I did the chair caddies - I had Hannah sew 2 darling hedgehogs but she didn't get them finished before leaving for England so I used 2 panels I had - so it is lovely to be able to use special fabric that can shine in a creation.

  7. This is another beautiful project. I am going to be working on a Double Wedding Ring project. There are still lots of pieces to get cut out before I start sewing. Have a wonderful day! Thanks for sharing.

  10. How pretty! I love the idea of using the fabric that way. What fun, and it is just as beautiful as the last one. I'm finishing quilting with my walking foot so I can bind next week and get a charity quilt in the mail. It's going better than expected, since this is so not my thing!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
