Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Mat No.2

Ok - I'm on a roll now!

I'm not saying that the unpicker has not come out tonight, because it has, BUT it has not had quite as much use as it did last night.

There are also a couple dodgy seams where I have caught the thread up underneath, which I may re-do, but that's enough for this evening.

Of course one of the reasons for this burst of activity is that it is the Christmas Quiltalong very shortly, and I really would like Project 1 out of the way before starting on the new one.

Next learning curve: binding the edges....


  1. Next learning curve: binding the edges....

    slow down little one, I'll have a bash at doing a tutorial for you tomorrow.

    Mat #2 looking excellent!

  2. I forgot to reply to Bilbo's suggestion that it might be my turn to do a video. I think the reply is "I would if I could, but I can't so I won't." In other words Kirsty has got my camcorder. Pheww, that's me out of that then.

    Seriously, you're going great guns with these, I hope you're enjoying the journey?

  3. And as you see Kirsty SO RARELY, getting it back from her would be impossible. Dreadful excuse {grin}

    don't worry, I've got some bits sorted out and will do something for Hazel today.

  4. They really do look good. No-one would believe this is your first project!

  5. I'm sorry that you had so much grief trying to sort out a video for me, Bilbo! The one that you found for me at the connectingthreads.com site is very good - they have lots of tutorials, and a clear style, so I will have a look at the others too.

    I am enjoying this, Sue - it's been a learning curve, of course, and the mats project has been useful in terms of getting to grips with the basics. I'm very much looking forward to the QAL so I can put it all into practise and produce something I can snuggle up under at the end!

    Thank you, Flum - it's all down to the excellent tuition!
