I have been intimidated by quilts for a long time, partly due to my poor old sewing machine that has slighty dementia and a mind of it's own. But it did the trick this time, so I am not to be deterred any more.
The quilt is from don't call me betsy's tutorial. I learnt lots of new things making this - this is the first thing I have properly quilted, I made all the bias binding myself, using this tutorial
And it's thanks for Ingrid for her recommendation of the darker blue fabric to make a border that would stand out, (I was thinking of a green, but I love how this works). Also huge thanks to Moira, as nearly all the books are made from fabrics that she sent me in the most amazing scrap pack I have ever seen.
I am thrilled to bits with it.
The quilt is my Dad's Christmas present.
On the subject of books. Ingrid has lent me this one.
So during nap time today I am going to sit down with a coffee and get some new ideas, I really want to try the applique technique (got to learn how to lower the feed dogs on my machine first - when we tried the bobbin holder fell apart!)
