customer quilt & another productive Sunday.
I am delighted to have Diane as another one of my new customers.
Diane wanted an all over meander through the middle of the quilt, then something a bit fancier on the border. I love the colours of this quilt.
Over cotton batting I used Madeira & Gunold threads for the meander, straight lines on the sashing & the hook feather on the border.
Diane was delighted when she picked up the quilt other day, she said was going to use the red for binding & it was going over the back of her lounge suite.
I managed to have another productive Sunday. On Thursday I picked up this months Sewing Essential Project from The Country Yard. So far I have been making two of everything.
A block holder, scissor fob & mini pincushion, arm chair husiff, clam shell case, & rotary cutter case.
Don't ya love these fabrics? If you click on the photo you will see I have a CD in the base ( under the pincushion ) as I need to get another tile. The tile is what is used to weight the whole creation!
My second one..................
The thread catcher on this one I put a slippery fabric for the lining of the bag & used RicRac & Velcro as I can take the bag off the empty the thread & the odd chocolate wrapping!
Wishing you all a happy & productive week!
