While I was waiting for things to dry, I did some hand quilting and I am happy to say that I have overcome my fear of it thanks to your emails and encouraging tips and techniques.
|I actually enjoyed quilting this mini quilt |
which I pieced ages ago but lost in my studio.
(yes I am reorganizing the studio..it's spring clean up time!)
I think it was the frame that was a problem for me. Without it I can sew freely. Since I am quilting a mini quilt I think it works fine.
|It really helps when you use a new needle that is super sharp! |
The coloured fabric is 30's reproduction. Each piece of the 9-patch
measures half an inch square.
Got to get back to the art piece....
|This is the hand-dyed |
thread I am using
in my art piece.
I bought it in Umbria at a market.
Unfortunately, I can not show you any part of the piece I am finishing up before it hangs at the exhibit. I will post about it in mid-June.
