Thursday and Friday saw me practising my free motion quilting. I am not very good but here is one Blanket of Love...
...and here is another. When a friend has quilted her ones these will be winging their way to Cheryll.
At last the Quilt as you go ( or Kalamazoo by Michelle Marvig) is done. I burned my fingers trying to get the flowers pressed over the freezer paper, stuck pins in myself from trying to sew on those long lengths of binding(thanks to KQ for use of the binding machine which made things so much quicker) and generally struggling with a big quilt, it is done and I love it. I hope that the niece it is going to loves it as well. I am not a green person but the mint green in this obviously has blue tones to make me really happy with the fabric choices.Would make this again but would cut the background pieces much bigger, other than that yeah, I did it and that ticks off another niece to get a quilt.
Two weeks ago this was my very unimpressed DD2. "Did you take photos of the others on their first day of work?" Well no I didn't but they didn't have a uniform or been through what she has to get to the job. Very proud of the nurse that she is and will go on to be. Think the face shows how terrified she was feeling. After 6 shifts she is now much more confident and feeling happier in herself.
