FNWF


Thanks Cheryll, always fun to sew with you and the others.....  we all met up HERE this week...

I finished off the quilting of this quilt on Friday.... 

The pinwheels are a bit of a sampler and I did different little things in them... trying to improve small motor movements... rulers help a lot for in the ditch.... I used to be quite good doing them free hand....

Then long trails of feathery leaves all along the shocking pink areas....


In the evening I finished off my bed of strawberries....

.. and then worked on the edge of my lollies sampler....  I forgot the beads in the middle which is a nuisance and I will have to go back and do them!


Finally when my eyes were too tired to concentrate I did another row or two on the shawl......  this is my go to in the car and chatting on video where I don't need to watch the whole time...   I'm about half way I think



On Saturday morning I added the binding to the quilt..... it's all done now...


The back is from a doona cover - I think it's quite fun....


You can see the quilting a bit clearer... and the thread catches, and the wobbles etc...


I'm not a computer so I will never get it perfect....

Righto, Gotto Go.... Sunday morning.. the fire is going, the coffee is on  .... have a lovely day...x

I'm so glad you're not a computer because it would be weird for me to be calling you a friend otherwise. Lol. I think you did a wonderful job with the quilting on that quilt. I love the fan fabric for the border. It has all the right colours. Gorgeous! The fabric on the back makes it reversible. Congratulations on this wonderful finish. ;^)

Love your pink quilt, quilting done by hand is just that and sometimes a little wobble happens, all adds to the quilt. Your strawberries look lovely, you have lots to be working on.

Your quilt is beautiful, and I love the backing too!

I can see why you bought that Doona cover; it's the perfect back for your wonderful pink piece. Great job on the quilting! I love the feathers especially :)

Beautiful quilt, love the backing and the quilting. I´m sure your hands are never still, nice to have different projects when you want something different xcx

Amazing, you've done a great job. You must be really pleased. I know I would be.

I think we are all TOO hard on ourselves. Your quilting looks wonderful to me.
AND as long as it holds the layers together then it's a WiN win...xox

The quilt looks wonderful Fiona & I think the backing is just perfect for it!!! Sorry I've not been around much - I lost all my blog reading list for about 10 days & its suddenly returned out of the blue!!! Blogger is just about enough to make me turn to drink !!!!! 😒

Karen S said...

Your quilt has worked really well. Great way to use the pinwheels.Always love your feathers. And that backing is great.

Michelle Ridgway said...

All looks good to me....definitely pretty in pink! Your blackwork is coming along beautifully too. Over this chilly weather...being a big whimp this year!

The thing about hand made is that it is not made by a machine, or a computer. Aim for perfection but dont stress if you dont quite make it. Nice work on the quilt and your other Friday night projects. xx
