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...

Final Practise!

This is a practise with the walking foot - I sewed to the outside of the flower motif, trying to track the lines evenly.

One or two wriggles on the outer outline of this - but I'm happy enough.

I am now going to Make A Start properly. Eek!


  1. This is always the nerve-wracking part and it's always trickier than on a sample because you've got the weight of the quilt working against you. But as long as the bit you're working on is flat and not under tension you'll be fine. Just remember, while you're working on it your nose is only a few inches away from the quilt, but you'll never look at it that closely once it's in use. Good luck!!

    By the way, Quilts UK is on at the Malvern Three Counties showground this weekend. I'll be going tomorrow, it makes a lovely day out with the Malvern hills in the background.

  2. Hmm, Malvern ...... four or five hours from here is just a bit too far at present. I miss it, most friendly, nicest show of the year.

  3. Too right about the quilt working against you, Ali - I'll be moving the machine table away from the wall to give us all a bit more breathing space!

    There's always the FoQ, Bilbo!
