Do you remember this ?
that turned into this
well now it's this
It's going to a friends daughter and I hope she likes it.
There was as much pressing in this quilt as actual sewing. I pressed the seams open so they would lie flat and guess what ? They did !!
I quilted in the ditch but decided it needed something more.
So I did some big stitch quilting with 3 strands of DMC embroidery thread. It looked good but what a lot of extra work. I roughly worked it out as 25 hours more. Ever wish you hadn't started something ? lol If you click on the photo below you may be able to see what I mean.
I did the binding in a black and white polka dot just because I thought it needed a strong colour to finish it.
Too much Christmas shopping and cleaning and driving around going on at the moment and definitely not enough stitching. Can't wait to get something done when things calm down.
AND I still haven't opened my SSCS gift yet - think I've cracked it. I've gone 13 days so may as well last out now - sound like an alcoholic - lol ! Ooh the anticipation !!
Will try to post again before the big day...
( message for Aisha - can you email your address and colour choice for the FQ's - tried getting you a few times now ) xx
