Due to a combination of starting a new full time job and a pesky elbow, quilting progress has been somewhat slow of late.... Hopefully I will get back into the swing of things soon.
However the last two weeks the machine has seen a little action ....
|Bluebird Park Tumbler Cot Quilt|
Next up is my Tube Top quilt (a Cozy Quilts pattern), beautifully quilted by Maggie from Maggie's Quilting Treasures. I originally made this as a raffle quilt to raise funds for National Breast Cancer Foundation and my Trek for a Cure, however as always I underestimated what I could actually achieve in 24 hours a day and with other fundraising events taking up time, this idea got shelved. 15 months after the Trek it is now finished. I think I will have to keep it now, it has taken on a whole different meaning for me now. Love the waving quilting and despite a brain freeze whilst cutting my binding ( I cut it 1 3/4 inches wide - I normally cut 2 inches which made stitching down rather tight) I love the finished quilt.
