New Class

I have started a new class, Hidden Stars.

I had much more input into choosing the fabrics this time, am more confident.

Here are the fabrics

I have cut out the sashing and sashing squares, and made two blocks.

Ooops, can't figure out how to put everything in order. You can work it out I'm sure

As promised photos of table runner

New sewing machine

Well so much has happened in the last two weeks.

I have been busy with building business, new fittings to choose and the end of the financial year.

We run a building business and are currently building a house, which is for sale. This means when choosing tiles, paint colours, carpets etc, I can't chooose what I would like but what would appeal to most people. So hard.

I also bought a Janome Memorycraft 6600 sewing machine. It has a built in walking foot and a large throat. I really enjoy quilting on this machine. I have been free motion quilting on my sampler quilt and have only the borders and the hand quilting to go. It looks great from considering I am a beginner.

I also made a D9P table runner, I saw the pattern on a blog 'A little of this and a Little of Pat'.
I stipple quilted it, need much more practice, but it was alway a practice piece and is pride of place on my table, just because I finished it.

I will post pictures later and hope not to leave it so long between posts next time.
