Even although the sun was shining on Sunday, I stayed in to stitch. Guilt did kick in… a bit….. but I feel I've done my bit of compulsory being outside when our sons were young. I completed all of the stitching on the piece started at the workshop with Philippa Naylor.
I love the fact that all of the colour on this piece comes only from the threads used ( Bottomline, Superior Rainbows, Alcazar, Lunatic Fringe for the heavy couching in the central symbol). The workshop has given me the confidence to try out much more elaborate machine quilting patterns, to use the decorative stitches on the machine for quilting, and to understand that it doesn't all have to be done in a single line - it is possible to stop and restart with new thread. Details below,
Just the binding to do now.
