Hello Everybody, and a Happy, Prosperous and Healthy New Year!!!!
I have chosen something to work on for the start of this year and I have taken the plunge and pin basted the Pirate Quilt – it is the guinea pig I’m afraid – but I hope it will be fun as well.
I am going to hand quilt using a hoop and have decided to use some of the images and sew around those and also to mark out a rope design for the borders of sand and outer red/cream borders. The centre square will have a large “X” sewn across it. Hopefully the red star shape is dead centre. We will see how I fare in forthcoming posts but here are some starter photos
The cream backing fabric was slightly too narrow so I added two strips in a complimentary teal blue colour and then pinned it together. Wadding is by Hobbs.
Well that is me, why not pop along and see what the New Year is bringing to the table for our other members and their individual projects.
