Seeing that it is a lap size quilt and not too big to squish through a domestic sewing machine it was decided not to go with the QAYG method. Not sure if this decision was a mistake - too late now!
As you know I am welded to my sewing machine and everything is machined on my quilts - even the bindings - and I decided to stitch in the ditch in each block . This is going to be tackled by quilting 6 blocks at a time then pulling though the threads, tying them off and burying them before making a start on the next 6 blocks. There is a total of 30 blocks so that means I will have 5 sessions of sewing 6 blocks completely. The thought of leaving all those threads to the end does not appeal to me.
This is what I have done so far
A long way to go but doable by the end of the month I feel.
While I am pulling through, tying off and burying the ends my mind is wandering onto what my next project will be.
As Miss M will be starting big school next year there is will a decrease in the demand to make as many clothes for her as I have done in the past but I will check with her mummy to see if I can sneak in a few more items before February next year.
Linking with OMG for October.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
