I had planned to get acquainted with my sewing machine over the weekend, but the end results weren’t actually what I’d planned … for some reason I got a serious urge to get some of my finished projects sewn up into pillows etc – it ended up being an exceptionally productive weekend on that score, with 9 pillows and a scissor fob completed, along with a little mini-quilt that just needs the binding to be hand-stitched … plus I also made some minor amendments to a lovely wall-hanging that Sylvia gave me years ago. Anyway, here are the end results – I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves:
This one just needs the binding to be stitched down 🙂
Sadly Sylvia’s lovely wall-hanging was folding up due to the high humidity, so I chopped up the hanger into pieces and stitched it in 4 places directly onto a pretty wee wire hanger 🙂
This is what first got me into “sewing machine mode” – the first month’s BOTM fabrics and instructions for my Piece and Plenty quilt … sadly it doesn’t come with any specific instructions for each block, and I’ve ended up spending a fair bit of time rummaging through my quilting books and online tutorials trying to work out how to do paper piecing – once I’ve got a bit more comfortable with my sewing machine I’ll be ready to start this one 😀

Wow, what a beautiful set – great finishing, well done!
You did a beautiful job finishing these off. All of your pillows look gorgeous! I need to have a finishing spree soon too. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your quilt.
What a great idea, a finishing weekend. I’m not good at the actual sewing bit so I tend to just make mine into little pictures or cards. These are lovely and quite inspiring.
Wow, you have been busy, everything looks great!
They are all magnificent! Great job Anne!
Anne, that was anonymous person was Sharon!
Oh well done with the finishing, and with the quilting as well – there’s nothing like those BOTM in one’s favourite colours to make one jump in at the deep end!
Wow you certainly were productive Anne! What a great little array of pillows. That mini-quilt is cute!
Great finishing Anne, congratulations
Awesome finishing Anne, the pillows and fob look great.
Wonderful finishes Anne!
I love your pillows. The trims really make them stand out!
Holy smokes, that is some serious finishing! You did that all in one weekend? That would have taken me a couple of weekends, I think. Well done!
Wow! You were busy! I love all your finishes, and that peacock is really cute – that’s so “you”.
