Well it feels like a while since I last posted but I guess it's not that long. I've been beavering away in my sewing room and have finally finsihed my batik wall hanging.
I machine quilted it all over.
I did not mark the quilt - it's all freehand. I attempted some continuous
line tribal - like pattern on the outer border. My twin brother is a very talented tattoo artist so I took my inspiration from him.
The back of the border :
I even attempted some feathers in the inner border. Next time I might be brave enough to try them on a larger scale becasue I think they turned out ok.
Today was also the last meeting of my quilt group. No more for 3 months!!!!
Irene gave us a real treat and we made our own quilted fabric.
Take a piece of wadding, spray with glue then layer it up with little pieces of fabric. Spary with glue again then cover with something like organza, then quilt it.
Here is mine :
I have not decided what to do with mine yet - the possibilities are endless.
Daughter #1 has requested a pencil case. I was thinking of making a trinket box with a fancy tassle.
Finally for today, I've also been working of my Virginia Bound quilt. It is a Bonnie Hunter design. It is not on her website and I'm not sure which one of her books it is in - I just guessed how to do the block from looking at it on one of her slideshows. Yes I'm that keen!!!
Here it is so far.
Next post I hope to have the scrappy borders on so until then,
