Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a fabulous day. It’s been a rather busy one in my little world. I got up at the crack of sparrow fart to make enough binding for two quilts. I rotary cut fourteen 2-1/2” strips and joined them together on the bias …..
And then pressed the length in half in readiness to be machined on two quilts, today and yesterday’s longarm effort.
I made two labels as well but completely forgot to take photos!!! I hadn’t had my coffee yet.
We had some lovely sunshine earlier which of course spurred me on get some more longarm quilting done. You may have guessed that I was working on a charity quilt again today. That just proves that you read yesterday’s post. It’s beginning to feel like Groundhog Day around here this week. Here’s a little peek at the scrappy quilt which I longarm quilted today …..
It’s quite similar to the ones I did earlier in the week. Today’s effort was quilted using a bright gold thread again and a quilting design called Buzz by Hermione Agee.
So that was number four and here’s number five in the challenge I set myself …..
I must stress that I did not piece this quilt, it was donated by one of our Quilts for Comfort volunteers. This one is quite different from the four scrappy quilts I longarm quilted lately. I’m thinking of using white thread on this one and perhaps a simple but girlier quilting design. I’m a girly girl so girly works well for me. I’m hoping to squeeze one more in this week. I’m looking forward to sitting down and drawing some appliqué blocks this weekend. I’m missing working on one of my own projects. I’ll aim to concentrate on my own stuff next week.
It’s been a pretty good day in my corner of the northeast of England. I spotted a city grass cutting crew out and about. I guess that means that spring has properly arrived. Easter is just around the corner which is when I kick off my own garden spring clean. I’m a fair-weather gardener. I sure hope we have good weather for Easter.
So, I guess that my report for today. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something seasonal. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching.
