To do #31


Linking Up with Texas Quilt Gal

Week of 2nd of August.

  • Machine sew binding on Carnival Ombre Quilt. Done
  • Quilt the Crazy 8’s design onto above pinned quilt.  Done  I developed sore thumbs at the joints and one night I remembered I had a ring I’d bought at a Quilt Fair one time. I don’t love using it but it helps take the pressure off my hands. I can’t use it with ruler work but for fmq it’s okay. I like the texture the crazy 8’s have given the quilt. They are rather wobbly, but practice no doubt will improve. It made me fall in love with the quilt and as it was a top that iis scrappy that is great. Crazy 8's and ring
  • Finish hand sewing binding on my Rustic Charm Quilt. Done. Very happy with it, but wish I had made it slightly longer. I caved too early!Rustic Charm completed
