After my ‘Get to Know Your Sewing Machine’ class with Deb and Jeanne of Plain Stitch, I felt confident to start on the baby quilt. The cutting of the blocks was a little boring, the arrangement of the blocks was agonising (how many times can you procrastinate over the layout of tiny pieces of material?) but at least the sewing flew by as the blocks became strips which finally built into the quilt top. I wouldn’t say it is perfect but then only God/Allah can create perfection (my excuse anyway).
Then, with perfect timing, I saw a notice for Plain Stitch Open Day as they have just opened a work room in Wendover. So on Thursday afternoon I popped over and picked up some perfect material for the backing and edging and some lovely soft wadding. Now I just need to wait for the dual feed foot for the sewing machine to arrive so I can actual start the quilting process. I can’t wait to get some free time back and join one of the classes; perhaps next year.
Sarah – your first quilt is so lovely, fab colours, I can’t wait to see it finished and bound in that lovely mustard yellow, brilliant!
