My online quilting group had our first cyber retreat weekend! We spent the weekend together, thanks to Skype, and three of us made the same little quilt.
|outside on the snow for Raewyn|
I made a few modifications - I used a different bird pattern from the book and I changed the 'X' flowers to circles; I also have the appliqué going over the blocks. The appliqué is 'Invisible Machine Appliqué'.
I used a layer of cotton batting, with half a layer of wool batting on the top for the batting - this works great for wall hangings (it has a good weight and lays flat) and it shows the quilting off nicely. All the quilting was stitched with 100Wt thread and a #80 Microtex needle. The quilt is 16" x 20".
Thanks for the wonderful weekend Joan, Raewyn and Wendy!
This next spinning project is from March, I just forgot to show it -
100% super wash BFL fibre - the March Fibre from SweetGeorgia Yarns.
This is the first time I have spun complete skeins of Chain Plied yarn - this makes a three ply yarn the keeps the colours from getting mixed up.
More details can be found on my Ravelry page.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!♥
