1. The binding on Kate and Chris' quilt.
That's a very old pic of the raw quilt top. It's since been quilted. It's coming along a lot faster than one for Owen and Megs I finished earlier this week. I think it's because this backing is pure cotton. I think that the backing for Owen and Megs' quilt was polycotton. Will have to warn them about that.
2. String Block cushion cover:
Made from scraps leftover from trimming the "Cathedral Windows Quilt" I made for Rachel L in 2007, and the corresponding quilt I made for myself in 2008.
3. Batik 'coins' cushion cover:
Also made from the scraps of those two quilts. The black works really well as a background - but I think the fabric could be a problem since I think it's a polycotton blend. Oops?
4. Don't Call Me Betsy Kaleidoscope Quilt - Colour Attempt #2
The change in colour scheme has totally enthused me about this quilt. Given how cold, rainy, and grey Sydney is right now, it's very much needed!
A pic of the layout:
The current state of play:
It's a bit of a mess, but hey - WIP, right?
A focus on the blocks that are actually sewn together.
Look at those points! I don't think I've ever had anything match up so perfectly before!
I still have all the pieces I cut for the original colour scheme - I think I might mix it all up and see how it works. Perhaps with some golds and patterns to move things along?
