This is the practise table centre I quickly made from a pattern I bought at the Harrogate show in September but I have made a better one but can't show it !
But I have also been busy this weekend while my husband was away at a Chess Congress and I had a whole weekend to myself. The result is I managed to put together new quilt top which is for a birthday in the new year.
This is some LakeHouse fabric I have been saving for a while and thought it would suit this pattern.
I plan to add a scalloped border again as I liked the one I did on my twister quilt.
I also managed to make a couple of cushions for the spare bedroom to match the bed runner i started on our quilt weekend but which I still need to quilt.
There is a lot of interest in blog land about quilting on domestic machines with rulers and I bought the new foot produced by Parr's last year at the Harrogate Show but I have not found it very easy to use..
I also have watched a couple of Craftsy classes but getting the rulers here in the Uk is difficult and expensive.
However, while watching some of the YouTube videos on the web I decided to improvise and used a piece of packing foam about 18 inches long and 4 inches wide with my normal quilting foot.
I have a curved template from one of the Craftsy classes so I intend to cut that shape from some more foam and try that one on the next large quilt as well. So watch this space!!!
It's been a good week all round as my Mum has been steadily improving from her recent operation so that has meant I have had a bit more time for some sewing!
Bye for now
