This week in the sewing room

Saw some quilting happening. 

What a big difference the wide throat on my new sewing machine makes when quilting - no more  wrestling with the bulkiness of the quilt and having to roll and push it through a small area.   

Then onto a finish.   The request was for 80 cm x 80 cm and I am pleased to say that it ended up being 81cm x 81cm so my maths worked out.  

Once that one was completed more 6" squares were cut for 4 more quilts.   They were just laid out in order to be photographed

And now sit in a pile on the edge of the sewing table waiting to be sewn together but before that happens I need to finish off my Chookshed challenge #2 which is due this week.   

Back soon and in the meantime 

 Happy sewing all

Lovely finish and a simple pattern to work with.
Good luck with #2.
I’m busy working on mine too.

Lovely finish. Yes the wide throat is much kinder on your shoulders ...
Happy quilting...
