But, I want to keep a record of what I'm up to so am giving it a go!
Earlier this year (late Summer time) I finally caught the quilting bug. I have been sewing for a few years now - dolls etc but hadn't yet plucked up the courage to start such a large project. Once I'd started, however, I have found it very hard to stop!
Here are some of the quilts I've made to date:
Amelia's Coin Quilt (tutorial from Moda Bakeshop by http://www.crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/) :
Reverse of Amelia's coin quilt:The fabrics used for this are 2 x Moda charm packs. Pretty sure they are called Verna but I didn't keep the packaging (am desperately trying not to hoard as much as I used to - new me!). The backing is fabulous Tilda fabric. I am even more in love with the extra width you get from Tilda fabrics now that I realise I didn't have to piece the back. Purchased from my fabulous (if I say so myself!) shop here. I used the same fabric for the binding
The backing for this quilt is Moda fabric purchased from Patchwork Chicks in Barrowford (along with the charm packs for Amelia's quilt) and the binding is Moda basics - brown with a tiny cream dot. I'm pretty sure that's not the formal name for it but, like most things, I've forgotten what it's actually called
I shall leave it at that for now - lots more to show but I must get on. Luckily no more snow overnight but the conditions out there are pretty nasty so Lianne is working from home today, leaving me time to try & do a little more sorting next door. Up to the attic I go!
