Stars and Butterfly Quilt - Part 1
I missed posting last week but I was just so busy with work and family stuff and kept putting it off, but I have been getting some sewing done despite having an inferior machine to work with.
I actually started this quilt before my machine broke but was able to keep piecing on the stand in.
I don't know about mixing batik and non batik fabrics in a quilt, but I'm doing it anyway. This is a gorgeous rainbow stripe batik.
Close up of the border.
It's getting bigger and look at all that space for the applique!
More foundation pieced blocks joined to gether to make the next border that will frame the applique.
I am still waiting for my machine to be repaired and returned to me so I am hanging off doing the applique. I love how this quilt is progressing - it looks just like the picture in my head. I did do a small sketch of how I wanted it to look but forgot to take a photo. Next time.
Before I go I'll just share my good news. DH has bought me a new machine (from a different dealer). I've opted for the Janome 1600P.
Enjoy your weekend.
