Just my colours, and beautiful clean, modern lines. To say I like them a lot is a very big understatement.
The mug rug I made for Jac is here.
So - the Sandwich?
I've been under the weather recently, but it was great to get back into some sewing this weekend.
Remember my New Wave quilt top? Is it really so long since I pieced it?
The link here is that the scraps from this were used for the mug rug swap. Shame on me that it's taken so long to do the next bit.
First, I chose a Heather Bailey print for the back - Hop Dot in cream. I used this method to make my quilt sandwich. And yes - that crumpled-looking mess above is the result. I am still in love with spray basting - and I'm definitely getting better at it every time.
And now I'm in the middle of stitching in the ditch along all the lengthwise seams so that it holds together for a long time. I'm going to do a little hand stitching in the sashing strips....
While making the mug rug I really fell in love with the perle cottons and I loved the effect they gave, so here's to another 6 months or more of working on this quilt! I think it will be worth the time it takes though.
Linked up here, here, here, here, here and here of course!
