The same friend forced me to start using Skype. She is leaving for The Gambia soon and I need to be updated of course. With Skype (what fun) this is free and very, very easy. It is really a treat to find out so many new things from my bed! Another advantage: No holding of a phone, so all that important chatting can be done while working on a quilt (or something else to be fair, with me it will be mostly quilting).
And now, the mystery is unravelled! I finished the top of the Fabricwonderland quilt and it is truly fabulous!
Yesterday evening (late) I stitched the last piece in place! I am very proud of it.
It was a bit of a hassle to get the top photographed, after all the thing is 2.40 by 2.40 meter! In the end we threw it over the bed. It was dark mind you, the picture is not of the best quality. I just could not wait to showcase the top.
|Even on the bed you cannot see the whole quilt top!|
|It is the first quilt I made with so many round shapes.With my sewing qualities it is a miracle that everything fitted so well.|
|Detail. A whole row of stars.|
|Big stars on corners.|
On Thursday I received the first pattern for Francoise's new mystery. It is called Patch Parade and the first block looks beautiful. You can check it out on her blog http://fabricwonderland.blogspot.com. So now I get to rummage through those wonderful fabrics I bought months ago and start a new adventure!
