However, my day brightened when I received this through the post -
It looks great and I can't wait to get a good look at it when the kids decide to give me some space!
Last night I made a very small start on my retro flowers quilt. At least I think I am going to make it a quilt all for me or failing that some cushions!! Love the idea of a quilt all for myself!
This is only one petal and not fully sewn together.
I am doing this old skool style! You can buy acrylic templates and curved piecing feet but I need to be frugal during these hard economic times so I am using cardboard templates, fabric scissors for cutting ( carefully) and I am handpiecing the curves then I will use the machine for the rest of the piecing.
Yes you heard hand piecing. Am I mad??? Probably but I have been doing so much handwork lately I feel v comfortable doing them this way and I was inspired by this tutorial by Katie at There and Back to give it a go. I am really happy with how the curves have turned out! They were pretty quick to do as well!
Have a lovely weekend everyone! x
