I finally finished my 4 12 x 12″ journal quilts – they have to be in Canberra next Friday so I’m cutting it a bit fine but they should get there on time. Above is ‘Moroccan Mosaic’ detail below.
‘Kiwi Greens’ which I showed before. I’ve added some beads and french knots to indicate moss – its still subtle but as it’s a small quilt it doesn’t have to work from a distance so I think it’s OK. detail following.
I finished this bag made with some of the fabrics (a scrap bundle) I bought in Japan.
And finally the Craftsy BOM for March. I’m happy with the way this turned out – its the right size – pink only just! and was enjoyable to make.
Thanks for advice on sewing machines – I’ve ordered the Brother – will get it next week. I liked the Juki but the Brother had more features and accessories and extra feet etc are cheaper. The only downside is that it is quite a large machine so won’t be so good to take places but I did get a free trolley bag with it. Blackmore & Roy, where I bought it, were very helpful and have a full servicing on site and free lessons which I’ll need because I’ve never used a Brother.
