My work life is still a bit hectic, with more appointments as usual, so patchwork is on a hold. But I finally got to start the Skill Builder BOM blocks. I have pieced the first 6 blocks, haven’t decided yet on the quilting design. I suppose there is no hurry. Got the backing fabric – a wonderful flowery design in a rich orange, wadding is waiting on the shelf. Wednesday is a public holiday, so I shall have time for quilting.
Fire and Ice quilt top has sat in the cupboard for a few months. Since it has rained for a few days (very unusual for this time of year), I got it out and made a quilt sandwich. Once more this top has a floral backing fabric – with tulips.
Lots to quilt – my days will be “quilty” busy, looking forward to that.
Thanks for visiting, have a nice week, Barbora
I haven’t posted for some time. But this does not mean that I had a lazy week. I have cut, pieced and made a sandwich for quilting the next Lollipop quilt. This time it will be once more straight line quilting with the walking foot in vertical, horizontal and diagonal directions.
Over the weekend I also made 2 pillow covers with the swoon block design for Kate.
My Lollipop sandwich is now waiting for quilting, till next time
I have finished my very first dolly quilt – what a size difference to the other quilts I made over the last few months. It is a matching set of 2 pillows and a small quilt blanket.
Now back to normal size quilts. I wonder how your quilt tops look like from the back. I have taken this picture when pressing the top to make the quilt sandwich …
… and here it is all ready for quilting.
So, free motion quilting and binding is my target for next week.
