What little time I have spent on quilting this week, in between gardening, work and rescuing dogs, I have concentrated on two projects
I have actually pieced the back and got onto quilting this old friend. I pieced the back in large blocks with Kona Coal sashing to reflect the front (and because it was the only way to make the fabric go around!)
Then I chose a simple wavy stitich for the quilting.
I'm getting a certain amount of rippling on the back, but that should dissappear when it's washed (she says hopefully). The centre is almost finished then I need something around the border. Something simple, but not sure what yet.
The other project I've been working on is a secret block for the Stitch Tease Bee, so by definition I can show you much. But I do want to tease a bit so
There's so much going on in this, stretching my skills to the extreme, and admittedly taking longer than I imagined! I'm late already, but in this bee, there's no huge pressure to get things done on time.
Mod pod quilt (but I'm planning on getting something done this weekend!)
A jelly roll quilt for my friend Rose
