Time has not been wasted though. I have been working on my wonky stars until my eyesight has gone slightly wonky. I am so pleased with it though. It is starting to look even better than I hoped it would.
|I finished piecing the top.|
|Mitred the corners because I thought it would give this border a more finished look.|
|I added a bit of piecing to the backing - but forgot to photograph it.|
Then I layered and basted.
|Out came the perle cotton and I have just started doing some handquilting.|
|You may have noticed some white in the border.|
|That was so the points of the stars that are close to the border wouldn't|
get lost in other fabrics and loose their impact.
|Second star just about completed.|
So, what do you think Tinca (the future owner of this quilt), are you liking what I am doing? Do you still want to own it?
Bring on the weekend and some sunshine. No dancing tomorrow. Quiet day at home of laundry, stuff and sewing. I have to get things done because there is a list in my head of everything that I have committed myself to and it seems to be getting longer, not shorter. How?!
John has volunteered to do the Brownie run tonight. Yippee! On that note - you enjoy whatever you are doing too. Thanks for stopping by.
