It’s three weeks since I last showed you my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt, this is a monthly quilt-a-long by Sarah Fielke which started at the beginning of the year. I was doing well keeping up until the last couple of months when family needs have overtaken sewing, impounded by a craft fair I applied for ages ago which is at the beginning of December. It was perfect timing really when Kathy decided to start to hand-quilting quilt-a-long as it meant I had to do at least something every three weeks!
At the beginning of this week I finally got myself a bit more organised for the opposite border length, mainly because I could get a lift to work ( instead of the bus and train) even though it meant me arriving about 45 minutes early…that’s just extra sewing time!
So I got my applique prepared, glued, ready to start stitching, as a result over the last few days I’ve managed to stitch the flower in place, just got two rabbits to go. My applique work is definitely improving, I seem to have finally got the hang of points, corners and curves. This time I also managed to match the pattern on the background (ish…at least the pattern is at the same level!), an added bonus!
Hopefully, once this craft fair is over and done with I can concentrate on a few other projects.
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below. Please follow the links to see all the hand quilting in progress.
