Stitching - Day 10

Forging on with the quilting of the quilts I have entered in our Festival of Quilts, I've completed the quilting on the miniature quilt, (I may add more to it but it is essentially finished)  and then started on the quilting for my challenge quilt (Diamond is the theme for the challenge).  There is no quilting plan for this one, I'm really just using it as quilting practise, I'm hoping this will be finished tomorrow, which will leave me with the red and white quilt to finish.  I'm sending my Sweet 16 off to have a software update installed on Friday, I will be without it for approximately a week, so it was quite important for me to finish the quilting on the smaller quilts, otherwise I would be in a mad panic by the end of the month.

Some more organising - a while ago I bought a couple of these sewing boxes from Spotlight, this one has most of the things I need when I do applique, the other one has all my hand stitching requirements.  The applique one I can just grab and go, as it has part of a project in it permanently (a tree from a Sue Spargo wall hanging) and I'm in no hurry to finish it just yet.

I have to remember to put a project in the hand stitching kit before I take it anywhere, (either the TATW quilt or some Museum Medalliong blocks) the closed box fits nicely in my green basket which I bought back in June.

  5. Amazing quilting, Pip! It's great to have a pick up and go box.
