Dreamweaver Quilt {Progress}

My Dreamweaver Quilt is slowly coming along. Looking back through my blog, I see that I started it back in February of this year. It was put on the back burner while I played with Liberty and Kantha style stitching. 




I've glued down my last string of leaves (yellow and orange) and have been enjoying needle turn appliqueing them in place. It's a slow process and I must admit that my eyes aren't as good as they used to be. It's easier to sew the teeny tiny stitches in the day time rather than at night - saying this, I have found that if I sit at the dining table, the light is a lot better and I can see it well enough to keep going.






Once I finish the applique leaves, I'll add on the circles to the bottom of each string. My circular needle-turn isn't the greatest so I think I'll use the method I learned with Lori Holt of sewing the circles to some light stabiliser and turning them out. Perfect circles!

I've joined Wendy for FNSI this week. Pop on over to her blog and see who else is sewing tonight and what they've been up to.

    1. Hi Robin, I didn't use a pattern for the Tropical Sunset Quilt - I just made it up as I went along.

    1. Yes, that's it. - slow and steady.
      I finished the applique last night so I'm looking forward to machine quilting around the background.

    1. LOL yes it's only used up a teeny tiny bit of the scrap collection. I actually made more scraps that I used with all of the low volume background pieces. We can never use up all of our scraps, can we :-)

  6. Your Dreamweaver quilt is beautiful. I love quilts that have a controlled scrappy look - find them so interesting to see all the fabric together.

    1. Thank you Alycia! I’m really enjoying the slow process.
      After years of rush, rush, rush for deadlines, it’s nice to just take the time to sew things for the pure joy of it.
      Enjoy the rest of your weekend x
