Still going ….

It’s so exciting putting a quilt on the loom, but in reality it stays there a very long time. Sort of like a piece of the furniture! I’ve been quilting today. The the loom is great in the summer months when you wouldn’t be able to tolerate the heat of the quilt. I’ve gone for big stitch with this design to speed up the process.  It still doesn’t feel very fast. Anyway, I hope you’re quilting! 

 

Hunter’s Star

This was a great pattern and although it wasn’t conventional, it seemed like one of the easiest methods. There are plenty of versions of this pattern out there, some harder than others. But, once started I’m all about finishing spit needs to be easy! Two tone quilts are my ultimate favourite and when completed I always wonder why I don’t make more of these for my home. As a matter of fact, every two tone quilt I’ve done has been given away. This is one for the to-do list for me this year. Happy quilting!

autumn days gone

Winter has truly set in in the Southern Hemisphere. But, this year I really was out in it, through the onset and into Autumn (fall). I had forgotten how good a bracing walk feels and how beautiful Autumn is. Even the dog started to get fit. Unfortunately when nearing the equinox it’s too dark to be walking anywhere, especially with my ageing dog!20140617-205030-75030158.jpg
