So, here's the quilt going through the machine at the quilting stage:
I sewed around the centre square and then around the 3 x 3 square and then the 5 x 5 square, all the way out to the edges. You can see the quilting on the back of the fleece herer:
I've now finished the quilting and have machine-sewn the binding on around the quilt. Now it's the handsewing of the binding on to the back of the quilt. I started it this evening but I got so cosy sewing it on that I actually snoozed off on the couch! I'll do more of it tomorrow - hopefully all of it.
Next, here are some of my presents I got for my birthday. I haven't taken photos of the ones Joanna gave me yet - must try and remember to do that tomorrow.
These are more dies for my Go cutter. Isosceles triangles:
And this is a template set to make a wedding ring quilt.
I've always fancied making a wedding ring quilt but the cutting slightly scares me. The Go cutter die for the wedding ring quilt is about £80 so I knew that wasn't going to be coming my way any time soon so I "asked for" the template set instead. (The translation of "Asked for" is "I ordered it myself and then gave it to Douglas to wrap for my birthday" :oD)
Now I just have to get my cousin's quilt finished so I can play with my new dies. What fun! :o)
And lastly - thanks to all of you who left comments on my birthday post. I appreciate each and every one of them. :o)
