Finished! 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.
Well I’ve been busy, sewing blocks for my version of the Epic Quilt made by crazymomquilts.
I started sewing the blocks some time ago, but the project had been on hold with only 30 blocks made; I’m now up to 100! only 10 more to sew, then to do the layout and join them all together ready for quilting. I have a very nice backing fabric bought online from the USA, which I’m considering using…
I had a lovely day working on my Epic Quilt; I hope to finish the top today. I still haven’t thought of a name for it though.. Its important to get on with it, as there’s along queue of projects building up behind it.
I haven’t been anywhere! But I’ve been overtaken and overwhelmed with non-crafty stuff; finding the time and energy to post has been too hard. I have however carved out a few minutes here and there to sew and make….
A sleeveless top, using Liberty fabric bought over a year ago! I made two more of these, for my sister (the pattern belongs to her!) one of them had short sleeves, the other was made from a length of fabric we found while sorting out Mum’s belongings. It was the first time I had used my bias binding maker; I don’t know why I had avoided it, it was easy to do and the result was great.
Rainbow Clutch bag, also from Homemade Style, a fabulous book full of inspiring but achievable makes;
like this Double-zip Wallet. Very clever construction method!
I have several other makes still to photograph, and loads more in the planning stage, also a sewing room update and several outings to document. 🙂
