Yesterday, I took all the basting off the Kimono Quilt I’m making for my mother. I’m incredibly pleased with it (and I hope she will be too). It’s baby quilt sized (it’s intended to be a lap quilt for her) and the biggest project I’ve got to this stage. I’m not very sure what comes next – square and bind, I think? But I’m sure my sister and father will help 🙂
The next big project I intend to finish is the first that I started (over two years ago!).
It’s a Log Cabin bed runner which I’m making all my mistakes on! And there have been plenty … But it’s a learning process and that’s fine. I’m at the quilting stage and have four more blocks to do. Unfortunately, I’ve realised that I hate the cheap filling I’ve used. Before working on the Kimono (which is filled with proper batting) I’d no idea how horrible it is! So my plan is to sew a block each sewing day and then set it aside. Like I said, it’s a learning experience and cheap batting will not be used again!
