This is a close up of the quilting with YLI vaiegated cotton thread, I decided to quilt it in an all over pattern, as the red and white one is heavily quilted in sections
Ill see if I can find a picture of it
Same pattern, look how different it looks in a different colour way & using the wonderful tonal values of the fabrics!
Blogger has gone completely bonkers tonight I cant get the details pictures to load without being massive
This is the second piece finished. This was cut with the Accuquilt 2 1/2 inch strip cutter, it is a sofa seat cover eh? yep, we acquired a sofa with a cover that my DH hated, I actually liked it, Ikea green foliage and big birds, one day I thought hmmm wonder if it comes off, cause he was nattering about it (typical man) & underneath was a lovely cream heavy calico cover which has been the background for oodles of cushions & a couple of folded quilts. So I decided to raid my red box of fabrics and chop chop chop. This is the result, it has one of my very most favourite fabrics Letters from India, hoarded for years, but I was brave. I cut enough for a table runner, which is awaiting quilting, mats, cushions, carpet, wallpaper, maybe I could cover the house, so its a good job that I like the fabrics. This was simply quilted using the walking foot and a ruler and a thread that has always misbehaved but today stitched like a dream, maybe cause I was propped up on 2 pillows as my legs are still suffering from the BIG STAND UP for a bigger picture, hohoho
Thats it, am off to bed defo now, just watched McIlroy sink a great putt with the 3D glasses on and two blokes almost obscured it by popping out of the screen, the glasses make me feel sick, shall make no more comments on the golf!!
Thanks for reading, perhaps you will find time over the bank holiday to finish off some projects, if I dont blog over the weekend then I hope that you have a very peaceful & wonderful Easter x<>
