Sweethearts Stitchery Quilt


I finally put together those Sweethearts stitcheries into a quilt. Although I loved the way The Birdhouse pattern put them together, I didn't have enough of the right fabrics, so I did my own thing and used a couple of Amelia charm square packs. I'm not terribly happy with it - I hoped the pinks would stand out more and make it a bit more girly. And I wish I hadn't used the black fabric in the charm pack, it really doesn't go with the rest.

As you can tell, I'm in a bit of a stitchery mood these days! I've got a few more on my to do list. First up, I was so taken with Tarnyia's Little Birdie stitcheries, I am just going to have to join in even though this block of the month is already up to block nine. I was also googling the other day and came across the most divine doggy stitcheries at Bobby Socks Quilt Company - these really gave me a giggle.

Had to laugh at the Redwork of Dogs too...thanks for the site.
With the black bits in your quilt..it would be fairly easy to unpick around the black bits and replace them wouldn't it?.. I have done that before, a bit of a pain, but certainly worth that bit of trouble...cheers!

It's a shame that there are aspects of your quilt that you are not happy with because it looks really good. Those stitcheries can be quite addictive! ann :-)
