I’ve ventured over to the dark side. I’ve been quilting.
And because there’s no quicker way to learn something than by doing, I’ve joined a quilt-a-long I found in Instagram called the Aussie Aviatrix QAL hosted by Linden from VineLinesQuilting.com.
The quilt we’re making is designed by Elizabeth Hartman – who happens to have a quilting blog -one I started following years ago. So I guess you could say I’ve been flirting with quilting for a while, just holding off for the right time.
I’m hosting border number four – Small Squares, on the 24 November, so more about that later. But for now I thought I’d share the progress so far.
I showed you the fabrics the other week and since discovered they’d sent me two the same. So to make them look different I added some spots with fabric paint and the end of a pencil.
The fabric paints came from A Little Creative, come in a great range of colours and only need to be set with an iron – easy peasy.
The cutting has taken forever but now the centre medallion has been finished I think it’s going to come together fairly quickly.
