Christmas was all about family and, as usual, most enjoyable. Everyone was thoroughly spoilt, my fave gift being a E-reader. I can't believe how easy it is to rack up a huge bill in just a few books, well, 48, so far. I love to read novels, but could not bear it if our quilting mags ever became totally digital. There is nothing like leafing through a stack of magazines and being inspired all over again !
I did manage to quilt a few customer quilts in the past couple of months. I have only recently been ' for hire ' - had lot of practice before accepting decent monies, but I am becoming much more confident.
This is a pretty GG flower garden which was outline quilted on the patches with a viney pattern on the border. Bad photo, but the quilting was pretty.
The next belonged to the same lady and was paper pieced.
Here are a couple of close-ups of the feathers - the corners were gorgeous,
as were the sides
I also finished a small selvage project , small because I had run out of cut selvedges and wanted it finished.
I also made a SUIT for my daughter - this is the first clothing I have sewn since 2003. It took me 3 days to make as I had totally forgotten all my expertise in the field.
This shows the detail on the back. Obviously ! She has a dear little Boston Terrier who is a very showy little girl and is well on her way to becoming a champion. Not sure what has happened , but each line starts at the centre. I shall shut down and try again soon !
