"Honeysuckle Lane" - Quilt Petite Blog Hop

Today is my turn on the Quilt Petite Blog Hop.
I am so honoured to be a part of Sedef's Blog Hop to celebrate the release of her first book.

Her book is truely beautiful with so many inspiring projects.
I found it very hard to pick a project.

Lily wanted another cushion for her room and although her first choice was the stunning Bonjour Cushion on the cover we decided to pick another project for the blog hop and to also make the Bonjour Cushion together over the school holidays.  That is a win win for both of us :)

Allow me to introduce
"Honeysuckle Lane"

Honeysuckle Lane, in the book is a Mini Quilt, but Lily wanted it as a cushion.
So I turned it into a Pillowcase :)

Our "Tenants" are a little different too. The Baker wanted the first shop, with the "Boutique" in the middle and still moving in at the end is "Lilabelle Lane".

I used my Bernina for all the stitching, including the shop names but it would appear that I forget to finish the last shop so I must go back and hand embroider the name on, this is, if I can get it back off Lily. 

I have also put up a free tutorial over on the Bernina Blog HERE for how I turned the Mini Quilt panel into a Pillowcase.

 And here it is, pride and place on Lily's bed.  I love that his kid loves handmade.
Also currently on her bed is the first quilt I ever made her some 5 years ago.
She truly knows how to steal a mothers heart.

Here is a list of all the stops on the "Quilt Petite" Blog Hop.
Be sure to pop on over and take a look at what everyone has made.
So many beautiful things in everyones own style.

Also, don't forget to go and visit Sedef at Down Grapevine Lane as she has a lovely Giveaway happening too.
