Quilting Works in Progress with
First some piecing…
…and then some quilting!
Now I’m stitching the binding.
What did you get done this weekend?
Oh you know, just boarded the loft, got up at 5am to have a car-boot sale, delivered left-overs to charity shops, renovated the garden, cleaned the house, re-organised our entire closet … not much really!!
I’ve been meaning to ask how you’ve been finding your Janome. I am going to buy a new machine and it is my forerunner in the selection race – I love the idea of more throat room and being a quilter-specific machine. Any chance of a post saying how you find it?
P.S Love the colours in that quilt, esp the dark turquoise/cyan.
Love, love, love it!
I love to see other folks sewing space. I actually sewed most of the weekend. I got bindings on three quilts and finished piecing another one. I also found time for some liberated stars and scrap blocks. Now to figure out what to do with the stars and scrap blocks!
gorgeous!! (of course!)
love that straight line quilting
it looks awesome! i hung out with out of town friends this weekend, which means i cleaned my house all week, which means i haven’t sewn for about a week. i’m due for some serious sewing today!
Love these colors and the way you quilted it is lovely! I’m really loving solids lately!
Love this quilt. I trimmed HST’s all weekend. Yikes. Now I have to finish a project so I at least have one finish for March (I do have tons of starts tho)!
Wow… that’s quite a lot done! Well, over the weekend, I cleaned, oiled and changed the needle on my machine! And I put away (a lot of) fabrics too. I just had to tidy up somewhat so that I can focus on my sewing, which I’m planning to work on this weekend.
No sewing because my machine is behaving very badly. I’m thinking of getting a new Janome, would you mind telling me how you’re liking the machine?
love the look of your quilt! straightline quilting is so much fun.
I got a baby quilt pieced together. and I cleaned up my sewing space lol.
I am doing that quilting on a twin size quilt and it has taken hours!!!! Never knew it would!!!
So lovely!! The pop of orange is my favourite bit.
This weekend I managed to finish two baby quilt tops and one pieced back for the girl quilt. Hopefully I’ll get them quilted soon so I put the binding on while I’m on my road trip in a couple of weeks!
That project looks fantastic!!
oh I think my quilting mojo is definitively coming back now…
Your straight stitching looks great.
Very inspiring! Unfortunately I was all gardening this weekend. Pout.
Not nearly as much as you got done, for sure!
Your quilt is so gorgeous…and I so wish I could sew a straight line as well as you do. Beautiful!
One day I will make a quilt…I will…really! lol
Peace & Love,
Beautiful!! I just love it…
it looks absolutely scrumptious, Alissa. I was working on a baby quilt this weekend also…I love how quickly a baby quilts go in comparison to a large quilt.
This was an awesome quilt for an awesome person–good seeing you today!
Beautiful! I love all of the colors you used. Very inspiring. Thanks.
