Faery Houses


I thought I’d show you all a little quilting project I’m working on.

I bought this kit at the 2011 Craft & Quilt Fair in Sydney and I’m making it for my friends’ little baby and will eventually turn it into a cushion when it’s finished. I’m enjoying it a great deal, especially the fusible webbing for the applique as I have never used it before or done applique either when I think about it. This is how much I’ve got done so far:

It came with assembly instructions and all the fabric for the quilt top, but I needed to find all the embroidery threads i’d be using as well as having to supply my own fusible webbing (which i’ve not used before so was unsure which kind would be best and the kit instructions don’t have any recommendations either) So I went with a light weight webbing as all the pieces are being embroidered onto the backing fabric. It’s pretty cute so far 🙂
