I've worked out that if I only join in with this every other week, it looks like I've achieved more!!
Actually I've had a good couple of weekends sewing, and have managed to move things along quite well.
I am joining in with Sarah's Stained QAL, and have managed to cut most of the patterned fabric. I have slightly less hair and a lot less brain cells, but I got there. I now need to get some solids but Simply Solids haven't got any of the 3 Kona colours I chose! Does anyone else know of another UK stockist?
My Cathedral windows cushion was also sitting on my list for Rhonda's FAL. The fabric was cut, but I couldn't get the enthusiasm for all that pressing. However, I put the telly on, and got down to it. I'm peased to say I've finished the top. It was a bit tedious, but I love the end result.
Just 144 ends to tie in! Then I've got to make it into a cushion.
Progress has also been made on my Melly and me Quilt. I finished the back by adding a scrappy strip horizontally and vertically - not quite what I had planned, but that's because there really wasn't a plan, just an idea.
I was undecided how to quilt it, but I spent one evening on the settee watching the tv with it on my knee. I got in touch with my inner quilt, and together we decided that straight line quilting on the diagonal was the right way to go.
|Not actually that straight - but hey, don't tell the quilt police|
And I finished the binding last night.
I've also made another couple of stars for the Supernova quilt. Still love it to bits!
I finished my pouch for the Mouthy Sitiches swap
Just got to fill it with scraps and send it off. Oh and do a tutorial!!!
