The joy of a little gentle sewing. It soothes the soul and does a girl good.
I put two borders on the Bliss Thimble Blossoms Picnic Roll-up quilt top. Even mitred corners went on like a dream today and now it’s all lying on the floor reading to be basted. Along with the rest of the quilting world, this is my least favourite job, but the delights of quilting with my Bernina 820 have rather taken the edge off the horrors.
It measures 84 inches x 74 inches (214cm x 188cm), so it’s a good size. I’m thinking of swirly loops with the odd flower thrown in for good measure for the quilting pattern.
I’m getting quite wild in my old age!
