More of the same

Sometimes progress is difficult to measure – looking back over the past week I can see that I have progressed several projects and picked up a few others that should never have been put down, but overall there’s little to show.   The first two long borders on the quilt in the frame are done –

Decision taken for the sashing border and sashings – this may get an amendment from one curving line to a proper single cable, or it may not.

Behind the scenes activity this week with one or two more quilts from The Cupboard – this time a delightful 1930s Rolling Star and a somewhat older Basket top

And I may have found the perfect bling fabric for mask-making –

Happy stitching!

  1. The quilting looks fab and much better than no progress at all. Love the 1930’s quilt and I also love the basket quilt. My collection of 30’s style fabric is waiting for the perfect project and a basket quilt is on my list of quilts to make. It is ever growing.

    1. The progress rate is actually improving as is my ability to make it (the quilting) up as I go along!

    1. Thank you! Let’s just say the effect is better than the individual reality… absolutely not my best work but it is such fun to work on the frame again. Sending hugs your way.

  2. Thank you for hand quilting inspiration. It is so interesting to see the development of a quilt on the frame., and although my hand quilted project is small in comparison, your emails keep me at it.

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you’re finding this project interesting. I’m really enjoying making decisions on the spot rather than agonising before getting started, the marking is really ad hoc and certainly not mega accurate, but it’s great fun!
