I am really sad about everything that has happened where you live.
I'll email you for your address.
Meanwhile, I've been in finishing up mode.
This quilt came about because I volunteered to pattern test for Helen, sister of Quick Curve Ruler maker, Jenny. It's one of those rulers that seems to produce endless design possibilities.
I finished the top end of September last year.
I'd used quite a bit of 100% linen (look on Ebay...there are always off-cuts knocking around) in the background squares and felt it might be a bit slippery to machine quilt it all. I was also looking for slow burn 'something to do in the evenings' project so I started hand-quilting all the background.
I like the texture it has given.
Once the quilt was secured with all the background quilting, I then took it to the sewing machine and FMQ'd in the little mermaid's purses shapes.
The binding was some Flea Market Fancy I had to hand which I thought would echo the one red block but also had the turquoise in from the rest of the quilt.
|Not quite...just realised I didn't FMQ that shape!|
Linking up to Finish It Up Friday
