Yes, I knew before I even started the quilt-a-long on Saturday, hosted by Sue of Quilt Times, that I wouldn't get much time to participate, but I still wanted to join in the fun:) So here we are, a number of days later and I want to show you that I am still on board (just a little slow!lol!)
These first three blocks took an age-I think I spent more time with my stitch ripper in hand than stitching, but I eventually got into the swing of getting my points fairly ok (don't look too close) by ironing the seams in a particular direction, so that they 'fitted' nicely into each other-how slow am I????
Sorry, I was on a roll and couldn't get stopped for photo's until the front was finished! There are three rows of the red blocks-the rest is over the banister:)
Now......for the fun/relaxing bit-yep, I am going to be traditional and hand quilt this one
Finally, I thought I could show the progress on Santa. It's a little wrinkled, from being in my sewing bag, but you get the picture
A closer glimpse of my newly learned skill....feather stitch????
There are a few other little projects I was going to show, but as usual, this posting takes forever. It is now 18.05 and I will let you into a secret; the b'fast dishes are still in the sink and there is no dinner on, so I better hop it!!
Have a great week,
Blessings, Shazy x
