A wonderful Sunday visit , in glorious weather, to the wilds of Wantage, Oxfordshire to meet with family and friends and walk on paths my grandfather walked.
Friends who have their house filled with interesting things, mementoes of travel etc can unwittingly supply all sorts of ideas to a quilter with a camera –
But, back in the real world of quilting, one of the many things I should be doing is fixing this project –
This is the centre of a small quilted block I did almost ten years ago. Never made it up into anything because teaching samples always come in handy. Looked at it with fresher eyes last year and decided to add cording, in the form of acrylic double knit yarn, between the double lines of quilting. Decided that looked quite good and then realised that some further stitching would be required to fill in some of the spaces before it looked properly finished. You can just see one of these spaces at top right in the picture above. It really won’t take long to stitch some additional lines and maybe even cord these as well, so I’ve left the block on the kitchen table to be picked up later today. Now I need to go in search of the correct colour thread, which may be something of a challenge given the time lapse involved ………
