"Mărțișor"

Hello everyone,

We use to celebrate spring on March 1th, whith a little white and red string, named "Mărțișor" .
Because of this, I'll made coasters for my daughters, instead to give them some little talismans.
I drew M and V letters on cardboard and then I cut out their outline, by hand, from "golden" fabric.
I'll use gold thread to apply them.
The white and red striped fabric is the only piece I have, that's why, I can't imagine too many possibilities to do whith, even if I had them, just a "line" on the bottom of my coasters to remind they are for the... "Mărțișor" thing...
 

 
 A red binding strip, 1 1/4" wide, like I usually do, and a gold string for hanging them.....
I also use to zig-zag the sides to secure them better.

 
I must finish these until tomorrow morning....

All the best, my friends and happy sewing!

Double Wedding Ring Quilt


Hello my friends,
Today I finished my darling Double Wedding Ring quilt top. I am so happy!

I was able to put different coloured circles in all my intersections and it is nice to look after the same print in rings, also some of them had symmetries.
Now I have to find a fabric for the back! - and I feel like I'll finish this one in front of so many others quilts I have, waiting to be finished....Will see.

Meanwhile, I listened "Cold Play" - 2012 live concert, actually, this is the fifth time. I like it! I like it a lot! Oh, my!! all those scene colors are as in my quilt. Cool.
 (My quilt name can be "Do not play cold a wedding!" - just kidding!)

Happy sewing! Happy quilting!
