Our second week of 2017 has been hot, hot, hot ... too hot for quilting for some of us, but there is still plenty of summer sewing to see ...
|Pat is hand quilting her striking original design Urban |
quilt with random straight lines - nearly done, but it might
have to wait for some cooler weather.
|Lyn had her daughter's sewing machine in for service, |
so while she waited, she made a carry bag for it - as you do!
|... and out of that bag came Lyn latest completed |
quilt top - 3256 1" postage stamp pieces. The vibrant
turquoise sashing helped to organise them into
manageable panels, and preserve sanity.
|The reverse of Lyn's postage stamps - she used a fusible |
grid method to sew them together by machine - much quicker
and much, much less fiddly than joining them individually.
Just search for 'fusible grid quilting for lots of information.
|Julie's William Morris prints look mellow and |
comfortable with their mustard/yellow sashing - but she
says the flannel backing made a bit difficult to quilt
by machine because of the extra bulk.
|Yvette is well into her version of Wendy Williams's |
'Round the Garden' design - mostly felt applique on
a linen background. There's a long way to go,
but it is already beautiful.
