First, off the frame was my ebay quilt.....I'm busy sewing down the binding.....then you can see it!
Next, I came across these 'churn dash' blocks again......it's time they were used so I found fabric for and cut the setting triangles and borders, got them stitched together...now it's a flimsy waiting to be quilted....more practice.....
I am trying to use up my 'nothing special' tops for practice and trying out the new gadgets for my longarm...these types of tops set on point are just great for that...there's room for a bit of experimentation!
Next, my Granddaughter came to visit on Saturday around 2.30pm and we spent the next 4 1/2 hours in the studio piecing together the blocks for her very own quilt....here is Fieron sewing one of the long seams on her Singer 99 handcrank......she's only seven years old.....I had to come back to say Fieron is eight years old....how did that happen....lol....
We are mostly used to having two hands to control fabric these days...that's a long seam and it was fairly straight with just one hand.....but Fieron has already got the technique off....see her tongue is sticking out...just like mine does....that helps enormously....lol....!
Fieron had booked her quilt in next to be quilted and it has now been quilted so that too will be shown in due course when bound.
All in all an interesting weekend!
