Trying out the new I-Pad I bought last week - love it for viewing blogs, surfing the web and emails but not sure how easy it will be to post so here goes!!!! (can't work out how to add pics so have had to go back to the laptop! - has anyone else worked out how to do add photos to a blog post????)
I have finished the top of the Hearts and Gizzards quilt but I am disappointed - I am not happy with the feel of it with using bondaweb to affix the hearts -it has made them very stiff so I'm putting it to one side for a while. Its a shame as I was so keen on it and the pattern has lovely appliqued borders.
I am now busy with a new Woven Squares quilt from Carolyn Foster's new book Utility Quilting. I'm using some chinzy floral fabrics for the quilt and have added wide borders to which I am appliquing my Liberty hexagons. I love Carolyn's patterns and books and this latest one is great for large stitch hand quilting which can be done whilst watching TV or on holiday. I think this one may make a nice Charity quilt for my Mum to raffle.
I have also finished three small textile pics from some photos of the Yorkshire Dales which I took last summer. I intend getting them framed for the next exhibition in Easingwold.
