Do you remember when this... became this? Well - It's time to get it finished. This is my next project. I intend to hand quilt kit with big black stitches. I always like to have a hand quilting project. Last night I went to the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild talk. It was a great talk from Gizella K Warburton. She shared her work with us - both textile work and photographs. I really enjoyed seeing both. Do have a look at her work. It's abstract and uses some great fabrics which give the feel of the countryside. These images give you a hint at the work Gizella produces. I hope to make progress with a few things this weekend and I'll post about it next week. Have a great weekend.
As I'd made good progress with making up this quilt top I had the bright idea to add a 'fillet' of yellow to brighten it up and add a couple of borders. So the idea was there - but how to do it wasn't - hence lots of unpicking. I thought I'd share how I worked it out so you could avoid the unpicking So cut a 1 inch strip, iron in half and baste along the outer edge of the quilt. I basted along the edge so they be picked out easily - there is still a bit of unpicking. Then stitch on the next border. Then press out and remove the basting. YAY. How else can you spend a damp Bank Holiday weekend. Hope you're all enjoying sewing too. Best wishes
