colour baby


Today I've been doing some straight line quilting on my embroidered alphabet quilt using my Aurifil cone. It really works well and it is so easy to set up.


Just make sure you keep the CD spool over to the far right rear of your machine to avoid knocking it over like I did!



I also trimmed my new rainbow log cabin blocks and I like this arrangement:



For both of these quilts I want to use a black and white stripe binding because it works so well and is a great way to showcase the quilt and colours. I found a nice deal on this striped cotton (code PC260-79) from Chawlas - only £4.49 a metre and it is good quality with a nice feel too. * A tip - the website pictures don't necessarily show all the colour options so you need to check the options in the colours selection box. I will let you know how it works for the binding once I've sewn it on.




I made my October bee blocks for Erin using this tutorial - they were fun and easy, sorry they are late Erin they will be in the post tomorrow!
