FNWF - February 2013

Tonight I did some stitching on this block - not a lot - I kept falling asleep!!
Before:
 After:
(Not very good photos - just to give you the idea)

This is the last quarter of the last block of Journey of a Quilter - I hope to get it to a flimsy soon...

Then I put the binding on this quilt - got it all done ready to hand stitch tomorrow - I had previously tried Liz's Lumpless Binding and used it again - I'm sold - its works very well for me...

This method comes from a  free ebook from Fons & Porter - the link is here.

Not bad progress and a sewing day tomorrow (Saturday) with my Patchwork Group.

See you all next Month for another FNWF!!

  1. I use Liz's lumpless binding, too, but you know I do it all by machine! Can't wait to see the Journey quilt -- it looks lovely.

  12. Lumpless binding? sounds like lumpy custard. Your points are just so good and the colours are soft but make a statement at the same time. Beautiful!
