Goodness I'm doing everything slowly these days now it is all work, work, work. But I'm very pleased to have my curved hand pieced block done for my Citrus Sweet Love BOM. I can tell you for free that it's much more exciting than the blah de blah blah new Reserve Bank conditions of registration for banks relating to high LVR loans. *snore* Are you still with me? Quilting is better, I tell you!
Isn't this gorgeous (even if I do say so myself)?
|Well when I say hand pieced, I mean except for those straight seams!|
I wish I knew what all those pretty fabrics were. I have just bought Sarah Fielke's Hand Quilted with Love, and I recognised some of these prints in there. Cathy and Treehouse Textiles (who helped design this) must have the same great taste as Sarah.
|Those seams and points match for the most part!|
Now I want to conquer machine piecing curves so that I can use them more than once in a quilt. While I enjoy hand sewing for little bits and pieces, I'm not sure that I'm up to the challenge for a whole quilt. I have previously much admired Barb's drunkard's path quilt, so think I need to get my act together. But first, some simpler projects - hopefully I'll have something new to show you next week, if I get my act together over the weekend in between Mother's visit (Hi Mum), a fairy party for Princess to attend and a wedding. I'm such a social butterfly, I tell you.
Linking up to Crazy Mom, TGIFF and Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Howdy visitors - have a lovely weekend!
