Well I’m back to a long period of work starting tomorrow so maybe won’t get much sewing done. In the meantime, here are some photos of the triangles top which I managed to quilt and bind this weekend. I’m pleased I got to finish it.
I used the Nature’s Colors Sea Foam thread for the quilting on the top which is a very delicate green. It blends in rather nicely. The bottom thread is a prewound bobbin from Superior Threads in cream. I like using prewounds. They are so handy and you get such a lot on one bobbin. It saves refilling too.
I’ve included a few close ups for good measure.
I used a simple ripple pattern as this is only the third top I’ve ever quilted. I think I’ll practice a new pattern for number four so watch this space 🙂
I like plain backing but it might be easier to spot errors in the quilting. I might have to change to patterned when I do something more complicated.
I hope you like them.
Thank you for all your lovely contacts over the last couple of weeks. I didn’t really know what to expect from a blog but I’m loving it after only two weeks. It is so good to see what everyone else out there is up to. Soooo inspirational 🙂 I just wish I had more time to sew and blog!
