Productive central in my neck of the woods
I have bound 2 king, 1 double & 2 single bed quilts this weekend as well as just about finished a quilt top!
for the first time possibly ever, I have no quilts in the "to be bound pile".
Now to clarify - I do machine sew my binding on, it still takes some time but not quiet as long as hand sewing. Some quilts I do hand sew the binding but the majority are machine sewn.
I like to throw them in the washing machine & dryer, the binding seems to last a bit longer ????
here we have the pile, some you have seen & some you haven't.
This week I thought I'd go through them & show you all
Today we have the Yes/ No Quilt
I made this way back in january 2011
All of the grey fabrics are from my spoonflower range
Its a mixture of the thesaurus range with Yes, No & Love fabric used
It was long arm machine quilted by the lovely Kim Bradley in a loopy scribble pattern
I like the flash of colour with the yellow & white
& being a strip quilt it came together really quickly
talking of colour, how great does this blue moon rose look?
my roses are having a bumper year this year
Its a nice throw size or good for the end of a bed, not sure if this one is a keeper or a to sell one yet.....
you may have also noticed my new toy - a piece of slate & chalk(I'm easily pleased)
I'm sure I'll get over it soonish....
& just for info - the pin cushion that keeps appearing in my photos was made by my daughter at her 9th Birthday party, I had twenty kids making cushions/ bags etc from felt. They had a blast.
Sorry I'm short on words, more to do!
