First here is my finish for the Duo Quiltalong...
Now it's pretty difficult to see my magnificent stitchery, as I went 'subtle' on my first attempt at hand quilting, but if you look closely, you might be able to see!
|Boring or brilliant? I love it!|
I am surprised how good it all looks together; I think the scrutinising of every FMQ curve (or otherwise) and concentrating on the length of each individual stitch (some too big, others too small), convinced me it would look like a disaster. But one step back, taking a look from a more natural distance, and it actually works.
Thank you Rachel and Rhonda for pointing me in the right direction - as ever, I took a few short cuts/liberties, but ended up with a lovely little runner that I would not have made without them.
Finish number two, was one of Ayumi's Christmas Baskets. This is a great pattern, one of those featured in Jennifer's brilliant 12 Gifts of Christmas Tutorial series.
I made this with more 1001 Peeps to match the runner. Maybe it will get filled with cutlery, but more likely chocolates!
I love to have finishes, and I love to have ticks, but I especially love to have things that we are going to keep and use...
Now back to the felt parliament!
