Bike, brake, BQL and binding

An accident on my bike, led to me spending some time yesterday at our local minor injuries unit.  Nothing serious, just a cut on the eyebrow, but deep enough to elicit a “hhmmm” from my husband after it was cleaned.  Waiting to be glued ( superglue has many uses), I finished the binding on the first of a pair of A4 quilts for a BQL swap in July.

 June july BQL 004 June july BQL 005

Feather motif from Anita Shackleford “ Infinite Feathers” , back stitch quilted using Jacquie Harvey method, using superior Rainbows thread, freehand extra hyperquilting in the motifs a la Patsy Thompson added after initial quilting, echo machine quilting with Bottomline thread.


  1. Ouch. Hope you are a quick healer, and I'm pleased to see that it hadn't stopped you quilting!

    Take care, love, Plum

  2. Gosh, that must have been frightening, glad you managed to find the silver lining!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
