Remember this one? Our Round Robin which started here and I got back completed here. So since December 2008, (oh I cringe to write that date, so long ago) for over a year it has sat folded up in in my pile of stuff. Until yesterday. I have joined the local patchwork and quilting group up here. I have never belonged to a real life quilting group before. Work and kids always got in the way, but here they meet on a Saturday, once a month, perfect! So the question of what to take on the first meeting. Out of the two projects I want to get finished at the moment, my wonky house quilt is just too big and these flowers, well I need a lot of space to sort these as I go. So I thought Round Robin it is!
After explaining to some of the ladies what a Round Robin was, I got around to sandwiching it on the floor, then popped my new and improved FMQ foot on and was off! I got the impression from some of the ladies that the quilting bit is just too hard, most of them seem to get their quilts sent away to be quilted, which is fair enough, each to their own way of doing things. But I like the quilting bit! So far I have just gone for the pebbly effect on the white. White on white, bit hard on the eyes doing it.
Not in all the white area's, just some.
The back is looking great! I went through 4 bobbin changes in the time I was there. It was great, I got to sew from about 11 to 4, I'm back definitely next month. The house was trashed when I got home but Daz was putting a lamb roast in the oven as I walked in the door, so not so bad. :)
