That's four wobbly lines along each strip of sashing, and ditch stitch round the "logs" (well it is 1/4 of a log cabin).
|Lots and lots and lots of wobbly lines...|
This time I tried doing the binding by machine. I had intended to try the self bind method, but there were a couple of spots where my backing wasn't quite wide enough to fold over twice. So, I made some binding with left over sashing solids and with a lot of pinning atttached it all, front and back, by machine. So much faster, and I do love anything that makes things faster... but to be honest I'm much much happier with the finished look of my usual hand stitched binding, this somehow felt, well, not quite the same. However. Owly Quilt is done! (Well, its in the washing machine actually so it'll be wrinkling and crinkling as I write) Poor Owly Quilt is going nowhere, other than into a plastic bag to keep dust off it. First time in months I have a finished quilt with no home to go to.
Today I made a plain white cotton blouse with loose long sleeves and elasticated cuffs, and a pretty pink knee length skirt with inverted pleat at the front. At least its what I think is an inverted pleat, I was just making things up as I went along and I'm no dressmaker. Its my homage to all the super talented ladies I've been following during their Me Made March. I've been really enjoying all their posts and am thoroughly impressed with all they've been up to.
Oh, want to see some pics then?
Well jeez, you didn't think I was suddenly going to appear in person did you?!
