Yesterday, I received a parcel I had been waiting for, a bias binding machine to finish off my quilt!!!
I was delighted when the white van man appeared, I rushed back inside and I was soooo excited...... I cut the tape and started to imagine all the goodies I could store in the strong brown box!!! Then came more excitement...... it was packed with thick brown paper (a little like craft) I dumped the contents and rushed upstairs to iron my paper and look lovingly at the creations I would use it for..........it was 2 hours later that I finally remembered I had not opened the machine itself!!!
My quilt is now coming along well, I am up to the filling and backing step next........ I thought I would give you a peek at the first six squares, not all a perfect fit, but.. for my first attempt and not having the correct tools or knowledge... not too bad!! made from 2 1/2 inch by 6 1/2 inch strips sewn together. The pattern is known as log cabin.
I think I need more of a life!!!
Hope you are looking forward to your week-end
