FNSI

Just to say I am thinking of people who are affected by the huge number of fires in NSW at the moment... terrifying and sad times for so many .....

The borders are on my Aiming for Accuracy quilt so this is the finished flimsy


The whole quilt along was great fun and thanks to Michele at Quilting Gallery   for really informative teaching and a great design.... 

In the last borders the tip that helped me most was leaving about an inch at the end of the length required and cutting that off after sewing... this helped so much for that little bit of movement you get and then have a slightly off border... I will always do this with my borders now... (if you want a better explanation and a video to watch go HERE)


Tonight is FNSI and join ups are HERE at Wendy's place...



I was thinking to carry on with my Christmas stitcheries......

... but I have run out of the blue variegated thread....


... so the next thing is the Gail Pan Christmas stitchery....

.... but I have run out of the green thread.....


.... so maybe I will have to start on something new....

HERE  is a clue...... it's Sharon's fault.....

Righto, Gotto Go... prep work to do......

Hi Fiona, Your quilt turned out beautifully. What a great tip. I'll have to remember that one too. I haven't started on this quilt yet - day late/dollar short. But I did manage to get all the instructions. So looking forward to trying something new. Enjoy FNSI.

Lovely to see your finished quilt top looking so wonderful. Great work.
Because it photographed so beautifully, I have to ask you what the blue thread was that you used in the stitchery.

Jennifer said...

Your quilt has turned out beautifully, that border sets it off so well!

Your flimsy looks great. Love the borders (and have both those fabrics in my stash). You might HAVE to go shopping for thread.

Love your A4A flimsy! Great tip for the borders... like Terry I thought it was wrong too but hey... if it works don't knock it that's my moto. I'll be trying it for sure. Running out of thread is so annoying hope you've got more now. Love the Keep Calm button... reminds me of someone...:o)
