What I have been up to today so far.
For the first time I have hand sewn the basting for the small quilt..I have always used safety pins before. This was actually a lot easier than using the safety pins.. though I have a sore index finger now!
I can now put this away till the new large cones of silk thread arrive .. hopefully next week.
I have only two more of the Prism blocks to complete...a blue and a red, and I hope to get these done tonight..then two and a half sides of the border to go. It seems to be taking ages, but it is fairly heavily quilted, and I have to keep stopping to stretch.
This is turning out to be a great learning project . I can look at what I have sewn first on this quilt...see what I have done badly, .and hopefully correct it the ...next? ..one :)
I have been watching a lot of DVD's on FMQ and these have been enormously helpful.
My DH has been terrific, and has cut me boards to use for the hand basting...and filed some of a sewing foot from my Pffaf to make it easeir to quilt with.
So far I have been using my Bernina 440
The Chook Yard is progressing and the chooks will arrive next week - YAY.
Need to stop for a bit - I guess we really should eat !
