What a long time it is since I last posted! Had my head down and working hard. The sampler quilt is now nearing completion thank goodness. Here is the bottom panel attached and quilted:
It’s machine appliqued using flowers from Designs by Juju (http://www.designsbyjuju.com) and then free motion quilted. I am more than pleased with the result. The top panel also uses appliques from Designs by Juju and hopefully I can photograph that one tomorrow. At the moment it’s stuck in the embroidery machine mid-design, so I can’t really move it!
The cot quilt is also coming along but I am not too sure it is exactly what I want. It’s ok, but I think I can do better. For me, it lacks zing, so I am planning on playing with it a bit. Here it is so far:
By way of a break I had a postcard weekend the weekend before UK Mother’s Day which also included my husband’s birthday.
I’ve also competed one more repeat of the needlepoint curtain header and started what I think is the 6th. I need to do a proper count some time but as I need 14 repeats, I don’t feel in too much of a rush!
We also learnt that our next door neighbour is expecting a baby in September so another cot quilt is in the planning. Ideas are currently on the back burner for this….
