In 2015, I bought Karen Neary's lovely book Quilting Beauties Come in All Shapes and Sizes. I fell in love with her pattern "Thistles in the Heather"
So, I gathered my nerve, a bunch of batiks and set to making it. I finished the top in June of 2015. At that time, I promised I would get the quilting and binding done in under 2 years. I failed!
However, with a week of dedicated work, it is now done and in the mail as a gift for a significant occasion.
I surprised myself, when I found the piece of fabric I had left over, to use as the binding.
Karen does lovely free motion quilting, a skill I haven't perfected, but I think I did okay using my walking foot.
Gentle curves are very doable with a walking foot.
I also finished another Baby Surprise Jacket. This one is going to the grandson of a friend.
I loved the beige, grey, and turquoise variegated yarn. This is Crofter Baby by Sirdar.
I found some perfect fabric last week, and splurged.
Now, what shall I do with some science fabric?
