Even though the machine wasn't going I was still doing little bits. I finally bound these placemats that are a christmas present later this year. They are made from ZaZa by Moda. Just charm squares stitched together, nothing special but they look nice.
The fabric on the back was my favourite from the range.
Last weekend I sat down and basted (Deborah Louie style basting!) this baby quilt that I recently finished. Stunning red backing.I spent time last night quilting this quilt and will hopefully finish it today, ready to bind tomorrow.
Before I put the walking foot on the machine I practiced my freemotion quilting. I am not showing it all as I tried something that I haven't tried before and it looked ok but not something to 'show' *grin*. I will be making an effort to practice my freemotion quilting regularly from now on. Actually I have renamed some of the days of the week....
Monday is Machine Applique day
Friday is Freemotion day
Can you think of any others????
I am trying to spent time on these applications on these specific days, otherwise my week runs out and it could be 2-3 weeks before something gets done! Even if it is only 5-10min spent machine appliquing or freemotioning, that small amount of time will add up.Our slow combustion stove is going along great guns, the meals are SOOOO yummy from it. Both dh and I are enjoying it; it says it calls him to cook!
Speaking of cooking, from my quilting course I learnt about the reality 'Master Chef' tv show that is on here in Australia at present - dh finally watched it and really enjoyed it.
Anybody else watching this series?
channel ten at 7pm weeknights.
