Disappearing Nine-Patch Lap Quilt
I'm actually quite enjoying hand quilting this quilt, the first time I have hand quilted anything. The green sashing tones down the pink really nicely and I'm looking forward to finishing it. I had to buy a thimble as my finger is getting a bit sore so I went to Chilford Quilt Show today. Needless to say a thimble was not the only thing I bought. There were some lovely fabrics. I did buy a pack of 'man' fabric fat quarters as I have a couple of Kindle cosies to make for the men in my life and nothing suitable in my stash to make them with. I also bought some other bits and pieces for some projects I have my eye on. It's just so frustrating that I have so little time to play with my sewing machine these days.
