I have been unpicking the first block I sewed on the large King sized quilt
I played for a bit with these

This was sewn with YLI 100 silk on top

This and the lower one was top stitched with King Tut

All were sewn on my Bernina 820.

Now some more unpicking to do, and hopefully I can get back to some serious quilting

Sewn on the HQ Sweet Sixteen, Sketchbook, Joannes Quilt Along,

This post is a little quicker than last time

I have been busy with my quilt and have completed another block

Well almost.  As I have been having a problem with tension..I am waiting till
I finish the main quilting ...and will then go back with different colours to go in the block design.

I have also been doing some sketching

the above design was show by a lovely teacher...Jeanie Harrison ..on Facebook
I really like it.

This was practicing some of Jamie Wallen's designs..
I was so lucky to attend his workshop in Perth Western Australia last year...
It was wonderful!

I hope to do a lot more practice.

and this is trying to get my head around McTavishing.

Now - back to my quilting.

FMQ and playing, HQ Sweet Sixteen, Joanne's Quilt Along,

Its such a long time since I posted...lots of things go on here
so time has not been favorable for quilting as much as I would have liked.

So I will put up some photos of what I have managed to get done
These photos are what I have just completed...more info further down

This is finally getting done...Joanne Threadhead's BOM

I first did the central block

This I will unpick..completely as I had the tension wrong, and I just cant face it now.
I did have a photo of the back of this, but am unable to find it. I think I put it on Facebook.

At the border...I had several mistakes and unpicked two blocks before I got it to what I was happy with.  the border is now completed.

Original design and practice piece


I have also been doing some sketches or doodling for practice

but I think that's enough from me just now :)

Enjoy your day
