It's a glorious winters day today here in the Chiltern hills. The sun is shining, it's almost warm, all my Christmas lights are twinkling, all is well.
Last night a Strictly/Xfactor/I'm a Celebrity marathon TV stint meant I really motored through some hand sewing, it's great when you don't actually need to WATCH the TV to get what's happening. I've been quilting this Wonky Log Cabin for January's class on and off all autumn actually in between my Heather Ross Hexey Honeycomb Quilt and my third version of Modern Appliqué ( which i don't think I've shown on the blog yet, but I must!).
|Ohh look, there's my dog.|
I hand quilted this quilt ( I hand quilt all my quilts actually)using an orange peel design that mirrored the fabric on the back. I usually like hand quilting for its flexibility, allowing you to vary the quilting to suit different areas of the quilt, but this time I wanted an edge to edge look to the quilting and this was fun to do.
