This is a really short post just to show you my 2 quilts for our local show that I finally finished. All I have to do now is sew a hanging sleeve on the back and they are ready to be dropped off at the showground.
I was really happy with the curved binding on this one. I managed to
curve around each feather in the border and I made a multicoloured
binding using the plain fabrics in the Circa 1934 fat quarter bundle
that I had. I don't want to be doing any pebble background fill for a while but I do like how it makes the feathers stand out.
I made a scrappy binding for this using offcuts of the Fandango fabric that I had.
Again. I apologise for the quality of the photos! The colours all seem rather washed out. Must do better!
I have really fallen in love with the urban 9 patch block and have started another one! I've only made 4 blocks so far, but I have 36 cut out waiting to be sewn together. What do you think?
I was wondering whether to add further borders and make it into an Urban Deco block, like this
I've had a really busy week and quilted 6 quilts so far but they were all brought in before I had my blog so didn't ask if I could photograph and blog about them. I have taken photos of some and when they are collected, I will ask their owners. If they say yes, I will post some pictures of them.
Hope you are all managing to get some quality quilting time in.
