I've been stitching away on my Dead Simple Quilt this last week and have finished the quilting. This quilt is a bit of an experiment for me. Instead of wadding, I've used a flannel sheet. I've been wanting to try a flannel sheet for a while, but was worried it would all go horribly wrong. My Dead Simple quilt top was made on a whim, and I decided to give it a go :)
Sorry for the rubbish photo, my hands were not very steady, and my poor iphone just can't cope with the gorgeous rich colours. You get the idea though, I kept the quilting simple and went for circles thanks to the suggestion from a lovely Bee member :)
I've not got the binding on yet, but I'm LOVING it so far. I'm trying to figure out if I've got time to get the binding on before I pick my older 2 kids up from school. It's not looking likely because I'm looking after my 3 year old nephew today, and there are lots of dinosaur hunts/battles/parties/investigations going on with him and Dino-boy. I'll give it a go though :)
I managed to get my 3rd Swoon block pieced this morning (while nephew was napping). I already loved Joel Dewberry's Heirloom line but I'm really swooning while I'm making these blocks!
Oh, and if anyone reading this is planning to come to the West of Scotland Modern Quilt Guild meeting tommorrow night, the venue has changed. It's now 7.30pm in All Bar One in Glasgow city centre - Excellent! I might enjoy a cheeky glass of wine while we natter :)
