The Home Sweet Home mini quilt.
This quilt is my favourite one of those I've made so far, the two embroidered patches probably have something to do with that. The theme was Home Sweet Home and I first thought I'd have appliqued houses on the quilt, but then I rediscovered an embroidery pattern featuring a house that I'd seen on Pinterest (someone else had posted their version of the embroidery on Instagram) so I decided to add the home element through embroidery panels.
That first embroidery is the one you can see in the last photo above. The other embroidery I just designed as I went. The saying on the two patches on the top and bottom rows are written in permanent pen, so if the quilt ever needs to be washed it won't run.
The blue and red fabrics were all from my stash, as was the blue checked bias binding.
Both of the photos showing the full front and back of the quilt haven't been taken directly overhead so they're a bit wonky, apologies.
I also made this house-shaped lavender sachet to go with the quilt.
More next time.
