Here is a finish of a different sort! You're used to seeing my landscapes but how about the finished crazy quilt for a change? As you can see from the photo it just covers the foot of our bed which is rather necessary because our bed is up on risers to allow for storage underneath. That means that pretty much all purchased bedspreads don't end up being long enough and leads to the need for something a little extra.
For some reason Blog-grrr is pitching a hissy fit and refusing to allow me to align photos in the middle. Oh well.
This new quilt (twin-sized) will be part of our winter ensemble on our bed.
Here's a closeup of one of the blocks so you can see the machine stitching....
The fabric I used around the blocks is actually meant for curtains and is something I found at a thrift store at one time. I have LOTS of it so it was nice to use some of it on this project.
And....look what arrived in my sewing room doorway over the weekend? Sourdough sticky buns!
It seems that Blog-grrrrrrrr is pitching yet another hissy fit (guess even it doesn't like the new changes!) and now it's wanting to underline things AND change the colour. Hmmm. Interesting development!HMMMM - even more interesting - when I hit 'publish' it seems that the underlining I'm seeing in edit doesn't show in the version you see, but.....red text is prevalent AND the alignment of the sentences is off. Oh well - you know what I'm trying to say! - There's a great article HERE about the different types of cast ons for knitting and their various uses along with a handy chart you can print and keep for future reference.- If you, like me, have an inherited collection of doilies residing in a drawer somewhere, perhaps some of the ideas HERE might be useful.
- There's a number of stained glass quilt designs available HERE.
- A local group is spearheading an amazing project to honour those who lost their lives to the virus. You can find out more by going HERE.
- And do go and have a peek through the free crochet designs found HERE. And while you're at it, check out his blog as well!
