Planning a new quilt is exciting and challenging!
An added bonus little quilt. 14" square now lives on my kitchen wall.
Left over scraps from 3/4 wonky log cabin houses.
Ready for quilting
On the wall in the kitchen.
Next finish! Would you believe that my lippy and emergency make up rolls around in my handbag! Now we have a neat little make up purse 6" long.
A good week of finishes.
Now I am going shopping at my LQS!
Happy finishes to y'all.
Well...................a perfectly square quilt with wonky houses was no longer square. Devastation..............
Monday spend pondering. Pulling the quilt through whilst quilting must have stretched on the bias. What to do? Dogs quilt?
I stretched the quilt and pinned it onto the wall and left it. Today with the aid of as squirty bottle of water, I wet it and left it to dry. Anyone out there with experience 'blocking' a quilt? It may take a few days to dry. Lol, how will I cope??
Better start a new quilt! That may save my sanity and take my mind off the problem quilt.
Any advise welcome! Please comment.
WIP on my design wall!
An idea a saw from Arajane featured on Sew Mama Sew.
Loved the idea and set about doing my own take on her idea.
Arajane calls it her 3/4 log cabin block.
I think mine is a wonky pic of a holiday island. I still have lots of fiddling to do but thought I would share the work so far!!!
This is my January finish as per New-year resolution!
This UFO has been hanging around waiting for quilting for almost a year. I have realised, when pulling out UFO's, that I generally finish most projects unless I get stuck and don't know which way to go!
In this instance I could not decide how to quilt it! Does this happen to you? So the day came when I had to Complete it. I still had no idea how I wanted to do this. I set up the 'Nina to FMQ. Not knowing what I was going to do, I started on the flower bowl and just kept going. Dense quilting around the flowers made them pop. I was pleased with the end result!
