Bargello Quilt

Frustration and patience was the name of the game while making this Quilt. It was a quilt as you go hence I drew up a grid and had to line everything up and check and double check before I started sewing.

Boris My Quick Unpick became my best friend during the Quilting experience. Although I can pick out several little errors myself I am going to make another one to try and perfect my mistakes.
Being a small quilt I can use it for a lap quilt if required but will use it on the head rest of my lounge room arm chair.

Onwards and upwards now and hopefully the second one will be even better.

Looking forward to the new year and another quilting adventure awaits me.

Minka Star is Finished

Finally after a few months of just sitting and waiting to be completed My Minka Star Quilt is finally ready to be used. It was one of those things that got pushed to the back as all it needed doing was the final boarder being machine and then hand sown on.

My aim is to complete my Bargallo Quilt as you go Quilt before I start the next one in late January.

12 months along with my Quilting and 4 lovely quilts to show for it. Well the fourth will soon be completed and all I can say is "Why did I take so long to get into this lovely hobby".

Next year I am continuing going to my Quilting Group and our first project will be a Quilt made mainly from a Jelly Roll.
