My Own Sewing
I have finished piecing a small table runner from the beautiful new Moda range about to hit the shelves. It is a Collections for a Cause range called "Community".
I foundation pieced three 6 inch pineapple blocks and set them on point. The border fabric is a gorgeous stripe which comes in three colour ways.
I am going to hand quilt it using Perle 8 thread. I am thinking to quilt a fancy pattern in the large plain triangles in red thread. Hand quilting in Perle is quick and I find very therapeutic.
PS. I had a call last night to let me know I have won some sort of prize at the Sydney Quilt Show with either "Meryton" or "Henrietta". I will not know what it is until Wednesday morning at the prize presentation. Very exciting!
Bye for now, K x
