Nothing says shift your arse better than the arrival of a baby. Yesterday I quilted! Only the second time since October last year. More about that in a moment, first, here's another picture of my beautiful Grand Daughter. Dear Daughter tells me that my eyes are not deceiving me and yes, she has red hair! :-) They are both home now and doing well. Tony and I are hoping to visit next weekend.
On with the quilting. I've had two tops hanging around for almost a year! They stalled when I procrastinated over quilting them. I did have a go at doing something fancy on the smaller of the two at one point, but really wasn't happy with the result.
So the other day I ripped it all out and washed out the lines I had drawn on. In the end I opted for some simple straight lines, kind of in the ditch!
I added the little raw edge flower because you could see where I had ripped out my previous effort. It wasn't terrible, but I could see it.
Once the binding was on the crib quilt, I turned my attention to the slightly larger one. This one is cot sized. Again I stuck with straight lines, echoing the seam lines.
Simple, quick and easy to do.
And how is this for a fluke, can you see how well that seam is matched up! I couldn't have done better if I tried. LOL
I sat last night and closed the binding on both of them. They are ready to go. Now we just need to sort out travel.
I enjoyed myself up in my playroom yesterday, maybe I'll wander back up there later today and see what else I can get up to.
