Latte and a cinnamon brioche!

I got up this morning determined to get a quilt basted. This takes some special equipment (see photo above). It was then time to get on with the kneeling...pinning...ironing...

I had hoped by early afternoon the sun would be out and I would reward myself with a swim at the beach. Alas only clouds and wind, so what to do...? Time to start the dreaded quilting. Not that it's a horrible task in itself, it's just that I long to quilt long straight lines but I have a way to go before I achieve that lovely crisp look.

Happily I found a few little 'intersections' that look quite tidy. I guess it would be honest if I photographed a wonky one too, but as I'm trying to encourage myself to keep going at the quilting I just need to block the 'uglies' from my mind!

I haven't finished the quilting yet but not too far away - am having a think about binding options. I really like putting the binding on, maybe I'll push on and get it done before the end of the weekend.

  1. I love the crisp white and the bright triangles! I tend to only post pictures of the good bits too - I'm already contemplating which parts of the quilt I'm doing right now will show up on the blog, I think I'll go for an 'artistic' look to disguise the uneven stitching!
