I'm think I'm becoming a bit obsessed with prairie points - cut and pressed 96 for a scrappy border.
Here is Olly helping to prepare the fabric for the prairie points. Such a helpful boy!
I don't fancy quilting the flannel so the plan at the moment is to finish the quilt like a big pillow, turn it through then add buttons to hold it all together. Don't know how successful this will be. I'm planning a trip to Spotlight tomorrow to buy some more iron-on batting. Had a bit of trouble getting the borders even and straight!!! Ended up with the top and bottom a different measurement to the two side borders. Rather frustrating, but I guess better finished than perfect. I read on a blog the other day (sorry, can't remember which one) that if you can't see your stitching mistakes/imperfections from a galloping horse then they're not worth worrying about. Perhaps good advice for this perfectionist!
Below are a couple more stitchery WISPs I photographed today. The light wasn't very good but you get the idea. They are both from a book by Wendy Brigg called Simply Red. This first one is called 1901 Sampler - I love old-fashioned cross-stitch and embroidery samplers - so had to stitch this one.
The other is called Hannah and Friends. Very, very cute! I think I'll add some red and white borders and frame this one.
Only five more days of the WISP challenge. Will try and finish a couple more things but I'm amazed and very happy at what I've achieved so far. Shame I have to go back to work soon!
