OMG Finishes

Friday, May 22, 2015

So Island chain is off the machine, binding is machine stitched on and this is where it is up to now-
Anyone who has met Bella knows it is in the best interest of saving your limbs if you let her be!! That look in her eyes is for real-don't mess with me! So I will just leave that as her sleeping place until she chooses another.
Meanwhile another quilt has been loaded and in fact now finished, except for hand sewing the binding-todays project.
This Plus Quilt used up fabric from my stash, bought probably five years ago just because I liked the colours! I backed it with some flannel and minky that was also hiding in the stash and was the perfect match. This is coming with me to Melbourne, Australia, next week and will live with my sister and brother in law. It will keep them warm in what they tell me is a cold house they have just moved into.

I quilted the pantograph Spiral Squares by Kerryn Emmerson that has given it nice texture. It was the first pantograph I ever quilted so is rather a favourite. Hand guided without a stitch regulator and Glide Thread in Teal on top and Magna Glide bobbin in light grey.
The back
On to that hand sewing the binding.

Happy stitching
