Today is my stop at Quilt Petite Blog Hop and I’m so excited to share my project from this beautiful book.
I have known Sedef Imer for as long as I can remember. I love everything she makes because of her color choices, her attention to details, and stunning photography. There are so many things I want to learn from this lady. Without a doubt, I was so thrilled when I found out her first book QUILT PETITE is published!
I have been looking through her book from cover to cover almost every day to choose a project and as an eye candy while my coffee break.
As my dear friend Wynn mentioned, this book speaks wonders of how small patchwork sewing can bring joy daily life! Thanks Wynn for the line I was looking for! 😉
I finally decided to make “Bon Appetit Placemat” with my own twist.
When my co-author friend Kristin came over today, I showed her my placemat and she particularly liked this little piece of print between the binding.
“How did you think of this?!” she cried.
To be honest, it wasn’t planned in the beginning. When I almost finished the binding, I found out my linen bining is 2″ short! So I attached the leftover peice. I would like call it a pretty accident. 😉
I drew a srawberry pie with my Bernina 350PE sewing machine.
This time I used Aurifil 50weight threads (brown, yellow, pink, white and red).
I outlined first and filled inside later. I would recommend the opposit way if you want to try.
Sevenberry fabrics and Dear Stella fabrics are from Ministry Fabrics.
My little girl is always excited when mama makes something because it means she would have more dolly stuff. She measured one of her dolls and said it’s perfect for a doll blanket.
Hmm, I should have made “Hexie Doll Quilt” from the book.
Sedef will be giving away a book+fabrics+lots zakka goodies at the end of the blog tour so do stop by her blog!
Everyday from today till December 11, there will be a super talented blogger sharing what she has made from the book.
