It's been a busy time here for me with work and quilting. I'm still working on the quilt for my work mate which is partially finished....as it is such a huge quilt, I've made the top and I'm now making 3 x side panels which are well on the way. Due to problems with my right shoulder, the top was quilted by a friend who is a genius on a short-arm sewing machine. As it is so big, her daughter (my other mate) has christened this quilt the "chuffin big beast" but it's looking brilliant and I know the owner will love it as much as I do, but due to privacy request, neither I nor my friends can post photos of this quilt at this time....though this may change when he sees it. He said he was going to take people on a tour of the bedroom because he expects it to be a masterpiece....I just think he's trying to recoup the money it's costing him hahahaha!
What I can do though is show you the quilted UFO I'd started on a very useless, cheapish machine about 10 years ago for my grandaughter. The stitching/tension was a nightmare so I flung it at the back of a cupboard (the quilt not the machine, though I did get a push to buy a decent one) but then I had an idea!!!!! What if I let my mate loose on it to weave her magic into it? It was worth a chance as it seemed a shame to throw it away and I'm so glad I did! Now the quilt is on my youngest grandaughter's bed and is gorgeous.
