Grace's Quilt

I screen printed these fairy blocks three years ago and have only just got round to using them. They are for a quilt for Grace and I have layered each one on wadding a free machine quilted each one in a slighlty different way. I shall enjoy adding beads and seqins to them but that job will have to wait. We have several short UK breaks planned for the next two months and I have trained myself to sew in the car. BLISS!

I have no idea just how the quilt will work out. I made a printed background last year and was plannig to apply these to it but it might all change. I shall have to give it some thought.
I'm off to prune 'the faces' in the field this evening. I made them with sapling sycamores a year ago and it time to move them on a little. As we were doing it, hope and Grace named each one of them!
The girls are coming to stay for the night so it should be fun. Will post the results tomorrow.

They are so cute. I hope I can improve my machine embroidery skills, so that I can attempt something like this one day.
