Last Friday my friend Yvonne came for the day to sew 🙂 I managed to get the binding done on Daniel’s quilt! Yay!
I did it on the machine with a herringbone stitch. I thought it would be quicker, but in the end it turned out to be very fiddly. Over the past few days I tied the rest of the quilt, and now it is done :
It really need replacing a long time ago, but I’ve been putting it off – one of those fiddly jobs that takes me away from my quilting! When it ripped I decided I’d better make a new one right away. I used the binding and string from the old one (unpicked it) and then sewed it to the new fabric:
While I worked on the above projects, Yvonne was busy with this most gorgeous quilt:
It’s called Snowflake Medallion, and it’s from a class at Ballarat Patchwork. I am very tempted to take the same class one day if they offer it again. I haven’t done real applique, so it would be good for me. Here are some close ups:
Isn’t it just beautiful?!
Well, that’s all folks. Better get back to school 🙂
