I've made my first quilt front over the past week, am absolutely addicted now
I finally found my library card (at the library
) and issued a stack of quilting books. It would seem there are library staff who are quilters, cos they sure have a lot of quilting books, even modern ones
I used the books as an excuse to check on my neighbour who was recently widowed, and we drank coffee while looking through the books before I decided on a pattern.
All of the fabric is from stash
One fabric I've had for years after buying it in a Spotlight sale, and the other my MIL gave me from her fabric cupboard a few years ago. The back will be part of a sheet that was mine as a child and is now used on my girls' beds, and the binding is grey quilting fabric.
This morning I went into Napier to buy batting (got enough for 2 quilts this size, 107 by 146cm) and some quilting pins. I remember my mum using long pins, but these days they have curved safety pins, what a brilliant invention!
Will post a pic once it's completed, hopefully within a week
