This one is a Christmas present - I don't know if you can see the hand-quilting ... tried out the big stitches done with DMC Perle 8! Wow, this is great ... I love to hand-quilt, but it also is time consuming and this is so fast ... I think I will need quite a bit of practice to get even stitches ... uneven sized stitches show up so much more with the big stitches ... still, I'm going to stay with it.
There will probably be a lot of criticism from the Purists, but , who cares! If anyone has any tips, I'd be pleased to receive them.
By the way ... the fabrics I have used are 1800 Reproductions ... who said Reproductions are dull and boring?
I am anxious to see ALL the winners from the Houston Quilt Show 2008 - all I can get so far can be found on http://www.quilts.org/awb-finalist.html I have such fond memories of our visit there last year and the Aussie dollar was so strong, so that made it extra special.
Dear friend, Shari, has joined Blogland ... please pay her a visit and welcome her ... she is just gorgeous ... works far too hard and is so generous with her time ... she's at Mumsyblossom's World ... take note of our beautiful native bottle brush in full bloom in her Header!
Well, must get back to a little tidying-up and then more sewing I hope ... our Daylight Saving has just started today and I think I will enjoy it!
Happy weekend - 'bye!
