Stitching in progress....

My last post ended with the words 'So now to the least you can unpick that if you make a mistake!' Unfortunately, this turned out to be prophetic, I've stitched and I've unpicked. I don't have any training in quilting and there is more to it than meets the eye. When you have a vertical pole it in your piece, it becomes pretty obvious when the fabric shifts but thanks to some tips from Lesley Morgan of Committed to Cloth, I'm now on the straight (!) and narrow.

I think the stitching enhances the colours somehow.  Lots more stitching to do, lots more ends to tie off. I now have even more admiration for those who make large quilts.

  1. Hi Marian - great to see you at the Pinetum BBQ last week, and I just wanted to congratulate you on your blog. It's very inspirational and full of lots of great ideas - great stuff. I think I might have a go at quilting (with some trepidation - I have an image of everything sliding everywhere and lots of broken needles to boot!). I shall keep an eye out for your updates and exhibitions. Best regards Frances (and yes, thanks to your encouragement I am starting my own blogging journal!)


Please leave your comments - it would be great to hear from you
