|YES, I HAVE FINALLY FINISHED THE KEEP MOVIN' QUILT!!|
SIMPLE QUILTING - I USED MY WAVE EDGE RULER TO MARK THE QUILTING LINES EACH SIDE OF THE INTERSECTIONS AND ALSO DITCH QUILTED.
|THE LABEL. IT REALLY IS STRAIGHT!|
DESPITE HOW THIS PICTURE LOOKS!
|ONCE AGAIN I USED THE WIDE BINDING TECHNIQUE|
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!
PATTERN: KEEP MOVIN' BY KAREN DUMONT ... find the website HERE The pattern is called "ON THE GO" on the website but I found the pattern in a Magazine (QUICK QUILTS, SUMMER 2010)
WIDE BINDING TECHNIQUE..... (I have had to delete the link as the site is having problems with malware). I absolutely LOVE this method for attaching binding to quilts. It's fast and makes the binding very secure, great for kid's quilts!
It feels good to have this one "out the door". I also delivered another version of the Toy Twist quilt but forgot to take a photo! It was a larger version of the ones I have made previously.
I've been doing lots of hand sewing, cute little Monkeys (pattern called Tumbling Monkeys - Quiltmaker July/August '11) - today I will put the pieced blocks together so a photo soon! Pattern by: Heidi Pridemore from thewhimsicalworkshop.com
This has been a fun project to work on during the many visits to the Hospital and of course... our usual daily coffee outing! Fred is feeling quite well at present and will commence the chemo on June 18th. Unfortunately I have come down with a horrible head cold and it looks like I might have passed it on to him, so we are hoping he doesn't get it too bad and will still be able to start the chemo as planned. He will go into hospital for this first dose. In on the 18th and possibly out on the 19th, depending on how it all goes. The risk to his heart is high so the Doctor wants to keep a close eye on him.
So I had better have another dig through my patterns and find ANOTHER hand sewing project:-)
I have a few things to show you too but this is a long enough post! I have been shopping online and now have some gorgeous standing quilt frames and a new Bag book. Plus a few siggy blocks too so I'll get organised with some pics and do another post soon,
Happy Sewing and Cheers from Helen
