I did take advantage of a Public Holiday and sewed most of the day . . .in between chats with a friend or two and some emails...and I've been watching a lot of Janome YouTubes lately - they give a short tutorial on using a feature of the machines.... I have learnt a thing or two....
Today I finished the top of my Road Trip quilt......The original pattern is a lot larger...but I just wanted a smaller version (patterns are just a guide . . .)
I am pondering a border...does it need it??? - maybe a tiny peeper and 3" squares around it...maybe a 1.5" border then squares around it - maybe a one fabric border (easier...but need fabric)
For now it's in the ??? pile.
Then I made some bindings to send to the Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild for the quilts they are making for the bush fire victims.......They expect to make 750 quilts in total - that is 15,000 blocks from here and all places overseas...an amazing effort.
I had bought some wideback green for another project ...and didn't like it - after I had cut it into strips...LOL...so I re cut and made as much binding as I could...and I grabbed a metre of green from Spotlight the other day when I had to go in for a necessary purchase . . .
I really thought I would end up with more (especially from the wideback . . .but I guess 5 bindings is better than none.
And at night I did some more on the stitcheries from last Friday Night - I'm onto the last one now.
Looks like I need another hand sewing project????
(well I don't really . . .but the lure is there.)
Now, what will tomorrow bring???
Will I clean out the bathroom cupboard????? or will I just sew some more . . . no prizes for guessing what I'd prefer to do.
