Well, Happy New Year to you! Hope 2011 is off to a good start , ive been getting well aquainted with my new sewing machine, i love it! It has scissors at the push of a button which trims the threads for you, i dont know how i ever sewed without it. Truly spoilt - i know!
I finished the kaleidoscope top yesterday and asked the intended recipient Master 4 if he liked it. He doesnt - he wants a "blue one" . Bugger. Doesnt matter i think it will look rather spiffy on the couch. Ive got no idea how to quilt it though. Stippling would be the easy option but i want to highlight the kaleidoscopes, somehow?
So since master 4 has rejected it ive been thinking about a quilt for him. I started these blocks a while ago
I wanted to make the stars a random size to give it a falling star kinda look. Ive ended up with different size blocks and i think trying to join them up will give me a headache! I really love the look of them though. But then i had a brainwave and thought maybe i could make different size stars in same size blocks and came up with these. It was just for a practice run but i am rather pleased with how they turned out and i think i will keep going with them
I think it will give me the look im after - just need to make a blue one!
