Snowbound & Postcard Cuties

Sorry for the horrible picture. I now understand why Michele always says it is so hard to take a good picture of a quilt top. This is the middle bit of Snowbound, the free 2010 BOM by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.

The 2011 BOM is about to start (tomorrow!) and I was hoping to complete my top before then.
But life got in the way and I did complete the middle bit, but not the borders. And above you will find proof ;o)

The theme for the new BOM "Henrietta Whiskers" was announced this evening. Anne Sutton is leaving us guessing till tomorrow. But of course lots of thoughts are crossing my mind: rabbit? squirrel? cat? What else has whiskers?


Last week I also completed block 2 of Postcard Cuties, also by Bunny Hill Designs. These blocks are quite small. This whole block is about the size of an A4 sheet of paper. Block 1 was even smaller. Great fun to stitch! I'm still waiting for the embellishments to arrive from across the pond.
Today I received word that the first block of The Night Before Christmas (yes, also by Bunny Hill Designs) was posted out to me. I cannot wait to see the beautiful fabrics and the cute pattern.
Thanks for all your good wishes for this new year 2011!

Very cute quilting. Are all these full size, bed size quilts? And what do you do with them all?

Gabi said...

Another cute finish. I really really have to look into these post card finishes. That might be just the size I can handle....lol

Michele said...

@Nancy: this is my first (nearly) finished quilt top. The middle bit is about 90 cm by 110 cm. So not too huge and certainly not bed size. And given all the embellishments, my cats would have a field day if I put it on my bed.

@Michele: I love it!
