|Converging Corners quilt|
The first thing I did after arriving was to take my machine back to the shop I bought it from. It's under warranty and they have promised they will fix it before we leave.
After sporadic periods of quilting, interspersed with shopping for presents and a trip to the local panto, I finished sewing down the binding on my mum's quilt on Christmas Eve.
I waited to share it with you as I wanted to wash it and show it to you in all its crinkly loveliness on some glamourous country location but the incessant rain have put a stop to that one.
You may remember this was secret sewing for my mum. With some Kaffe Fasset fabrics, I used Film in the Fridge's tutorial for her Converging Corner's block - when I showed a teaser here - most of you guessed right. These blocks are super easy to make but more time consuming than you might think. With no sashing, you also have to make quite a few of them to get a decent sized quilt. After 20 blocks, I called it a day and added a 6 " border.
For the backing, I used Amy Butler's Harriet's Kitchen from her beautiful Cameo line.
The binding is also from the Cameo line - Folly in zinc. I would love to make a shirt from this fabric.
I'm really happy with how the Cameo fabrics work with the Kaffe Fasset fabrics.
For the quilting, I did organic straight lines - while I like the effect, it took a long time to quilt!
So this is a

Like a lot of people, I have tried to stay away from the computer over Christmas so that I can enjoy my time with family. After New Year, I am looking forward to getting my machine back and resuming some kind of normal service...
