This – which came out of playing with pebbles at the start of the year…
There may be a message for me there.
It is very difficult to get it to hang straight given that it has built-in plumb lines. Or perhaps because it has built-in plumb lines, so it is more obvious when it isn’t straight. Wensleydale says the plumb lines remind him of Trade Union banners. Union of Bodge It Yourself Embroiderers, perhaps.
The waddingless quilt is languishing by the machine waiting for me to unpick bits of it tomorrow. I have already unpicked some and it is not easy. Nor is it going to lie flat – sewing concentric circles had a predictable result. I backed it with soluble stabiliser but I think it would have been better with soluble paper – or even tear away stabiliser - except that I have ambitions to make it reversible.
Today's daily C&G photo is reverse appliqué with sheers – like the waddingless quilt, but flat.
This was done in a bit of a hurry after some goalpost moving by the tutor, so not one of my more inspired pieces.
