Quilting and Binding.....


I had a fun weekend doing some quilting...... swirls and circles for the superheroes after going around  all the applique pieces in an invisible thread.



I used a variegated grey for the swirls and it has kept the quilt soft whilst giving it a bit of texture .....


then came binding...... sewing the strips together. (I had bought half a metre and realised the stripes went between the selvages so there was a lot of ends to sew together ....


.... I get excited at getting the ends to meet perfectly on the stripe ....


...most of the time....


I have a few old thread cones and they make useful binding holders....


... do you ever get the feeling you are being watched while you work???????


I have my evening hand work ready to do now....

Righto, Gotto Go....... I want to play catch up with Splendid Sampler blocks this week.... only 32 plus behind....

  2. Now that is one creepy watcher! I love variegated threads too, they do a wonderful job of blending in with so many colours.

  3. I like the border, perfect for the quilt and i think less quilting is nice for kid's quilts, the ones i did came out too stiff.
