stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
This quilt started with a Ferret workshop.
She suggested we bring along a metre of black fabric, sandwiched up with wadding and backing and any old bobbins that needed using up. I’d just bought a discounted reel of turquoise thread on a stall at Oast Quilters so I took that.
We spent all day just practicing free motion quilting under her expert guidance. Her idea that it just be a practice piece took away any stress and as the day progressed our stitches got more even. When my thread ran out I just continued with a variegated purple left over from another project. Because it was too small to really use (which was the idea!), I added borders of strips and increased the size with the quilt as you go method. It’s now a throw on the back of my sofa. Thank you Ferret for a lovely day and to Oast Quilters for organising and hosting another fabulous workshop.
