So last Saturday I had a lovely time sewing with friends and managed to cross off a few things off my to do list. And this is what my fellow quilters were up to...
This is what I was sewing, the "Luck of the Irish" quilt. I only brought two fabrics, this green and the light print - which is a pale green ...which was a big deal as its a floral print (don't like florals only leaf prints!) and a light! BUT can you see the seam in the top left corner? Yes I ran out of the light print and needed 10 more half square triangles, so spent alot of time piecing bits so I could finish the last two rows for the top. I am hoping that once I finish the quilt they wont look too obvious as they are all in one corner of the quilt...not my preferred way of doing things, but I brought the fabric so long ago I knew I would never find any more.
Now I just need to add borders! Its not as big as I would like so I am thinking I should add a light tone on tone skinny border and then add a pieced border?
So according to my to do list I did get the binding machine sewn on my Wagga (Sat), then finished piecing the top of my Luck of the Irish quilt, but I didn't do too much damage to my diet (nice apple pie doesn't count because it has fruit in it so therefore is healthy!) and had loads of fun.
However I didn't get any more bias made for the Celtic quilt. So on Sunday I did a heap of gardening (for me the brown thumb) and then retreated into my sewing room. I had a big tidy up, threw out some stuff (not fabric), rearranged my books for easy of access and then decided that I had time to whip up this new cover for my mini ironing board.
