Happy New Year! (and finished quilt)
First of all, let me wish everyone who has visited this blog and all my lovely customers, a very happy and proepeous New Year! Thank you for all your encouragement over the last year - I've thoroughly enjoyed myself and hope you have enjoyed the things I've made!
I really put my new sewing machine to the test yesterday! I finally managed to finish my quilt. It is a bit of a cheats quilt - machine pieced and backed with fleece rather than wadding and a backing. But I wanted something soft and cosy as a throw for my newly decorated lounge
I used the bag method to attach the cloth to the fleece, sewed the two pieces right side together then turned them right way out; top stitched the edges, then quilted a large pattern. I'm very pleased with it, it is thick and warm and I love the colours, they are so me!
