Trig Point

davFinished! This is the little quilt I started at patchwork club last week; it came together fairly well. I decided that an all-over stipple pattern was the best way to quilt it, and it went OK. My free motion quilting is slowly getting more reliable and I’m mostly pleased with this one.

I spent a long time mulling-over names for it, until  “Trig Point” sprang to mind; the shape of each block/unit reminds me of the symbol used on the OS maps 🙂

I have also been doing some secret sewing which cannot appear on here yet.

Big Top

I thought for ages about what I should call my new quilt-top. It’s very, very colourful with lots of bright, jolly colours. Carnival? Something to do with paper windmills? Flags?

And its so big…

Big Top it is.

I’m thinking about making an appointment to use the long-arm quilting machine for this one; which means I am free to get on with some of the other ideas in my queue/mind
