Next project started

I
Taz thinks maybe a bit more quilting needed
have unpacked a UFO and it is appropriate as the quilt's name is Oh my stars. My youngest and I did it together in to 2011 school holidays. It is machine stitched and does not have the accuracy I normally achieve in my hand pieced quilts.
Taz has found the centre of the quilt
I decided that this needs to be quilted. I have not decided what to do next, so while ideas swirl around my head I will be doing this quilting, thereafter I will add some bias binding to some of the quilts that have a fold over.
Hopefully at this point I will know what is going to entertain me for the next year or two. This is the start of the quilting. I have decided to just have a bit of fun with the quilting. With the granny's garden I stitched around each of the hexagons.  
The end result was that the whole quilt looks like a collection of yoyos stitched together. With this one I will probably do quite a few rows of stitching to make it all hang together.  It is freezing here today and this quilt is really small. I got spoilt with the largeness of the previous quilt
Taz is pleased with his efforts
in which myself and the cats could cuddle under the quilt whilst I stitched.
Hope you have an amazing Sunday and keep either warm or cool depending on which half of the earth you live.

Have a good one!

  2. I love that you and your youngest pieced the quilt TOGETHER!!! Though it may not be as accurately pieced as you prefer, there's something to be said for the fact that it was a collaborative effort. Happy Quilting!!

    1. It was fun, and hopefully one day the bug will bite and she will make quilts as well.

  3. This is so pretty the way the bright colors pop on the black background. I like how your quilting looks so far. Maybe we need to switch quilts, though. You are working on a small one in the cold weather and I'm and working on a big one in the muggy heat.
