What's on my wall~
Tip: after using a seam ripper, use a lint roller to roll away those pesky threads.
Tip: When "fussy sewing" use the fabric to help you sew accurately. I can easily see where I have to stitch on the wrong side.
On the 4-patch, I machine quilted from the back to create an Apple Core quilting pattern. I made a dot to guide my serpentine stitching. I quickly realized I only nee 1line each way to make the design - duh.
I've joined the sew along with Cecile' of Patchwork Inspirations and Bea' of Needle in a Haystack. We are to make 2 log cabin blocks a week. I've started a new modern quilt for my boy, Andrew.
Sad News in the Quilt World
Sue Garman passed away on January 8th. I never met Sue but I have admired her for many years and always enjoyed her blog. She posted on January 1st and sounded so positive. This is my favorite Sue Garman Pattern; Ladies of the Sea.
