All Sorts of Everything
Its been all go here this week doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
I am late again with Klosjes post as I believe you are supposed to post these on Saturdays. Hope the Klosjes police are not out there to fine me.
This weeks Barbara Brackman's Civil War block is Seven Sisters . As I am not a real hand applique girl I have used the smallest size blanket stitch on my machine and then altered the stitches down even smaller. Don't get me wrong I love the look of hand applique but am not mad about doing it.
The 3rd thing this week is Lori's quilt a long which I know lots of you are partaking in - and for those of you who are not this is where we are so far.
Finally I may of mentioned before that our quilt group has an exhibition in April . I still have lots of work in progress . The last photo is a medallion quilt and the centre panel formed part of a kit which I purchased from Petra Prins back in 2005. After a while I decided not to make the kit and have used some of the fabric in this medallion quilt. In the large centre star section I have used IRISH LINEN and I am liking the mix of using the different fabric mediums together.
I will post the last of the red and green quilts this week as I know from the comments you have all enjoyed seeing these beautiful quilts.
For now it's back to the sewing machine.
