This quilt was an attempt to master set-in seams! The blocks consist nearly only of set-in seams and I thought if I can´t make them aften so many blocks, I will never do! The quilt is yet another pattern from Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine and it is machine-sewed and hand-quilted. It is called En passant chez Ursel. Ursel is the owner of my LQS and she sells surprise brown bags full of scraps, mainly stripes. We buy these bags without knowing the contents and I love it. As I needed 6 or 12 shapes from the same fabric for each round of one block, I thought that was the time to use these scraps. Well, you have probably guessed by now that I love scraps and that´s a great pattern to use them.
I made 2 more magic card holders as well with the ribbons I got last week-end. These small gifts are easy to make and they are fun: once again the explanation, when you pull the small ribbon the business card pops out of the holder.
I wish you all a nice week. Here in Germany it starts well as we have a bank holiday tomorrow!
