I started this early last year when my itch to start quilting couldn't be postponed any longer. I have had a sewing machine for a long time, but I was never confident with it, so in my wisdom I decided to handpiece.
I had been collecting fabrics I like for a long time and these autumn colours are my favourites. I've always known my colours, and as a dark redhead these are the ones I like to wear as well.
I made my blocks okay and loved playing with the various pattern that can be achieved with log cabins but I stalled with the thought of hand quilting. The heavyweight curtain quilting disaster I think put me off.
My lovely blocked are still in the trunk waiting to be finished. Part of me wants to get on with it by machine now, but I did so much by hand it would seem a shame!
Ah well, I'll leave the decision for another day.
