Quilting. I am waiting for the metal hardware for some bags that are in the process of being made. So I thought I would pull out my quilt top, make ready the sandwich and start quilting. I’ve put this bit of it off as I must admit that I’m still a little scared of this part of making a quilt. The quilt top itself is fun, but this bit seems the ‘hard work side’.
With my little helper, my mum’s lesson last summer and a good youtube video we pinned the quilt sandwich together on the table.
Then I started quilting…this is the biggest quilt made to date, it certainly takes time.
It was going well,
Until I ran out of thread on my bobbin – I wound some more on and started again – something wasn’t quite right but I continued merrily not thinking too much of it…
But when I turned over the quilt I saw this
Grrr, A big mess of thread – so that’s where I stopped.
Tomorrow is another day and I’ll be back on it with fresh hands, arms and eyes:)
