Currently I'm working on...

Currently I am working on a couple of things...

Firstly, two quilts for the girls, made from left over bits of material. Did I ever think I would be the sort of person to make a quilt? No! Do I even know what I am doing? Not at all! I would appreciate any tips from quilting experts out there... especially regarding using the darning foot on my machine to do some 'free motion' patterns on the quilt.

The other thing I am working on is my very bad attitude towards these shoes (and their owner ;) If they're not left next to my bed, I find them taken off in doorways and other random places where someone could easily trip and break a leg. Does anyone else struggle with a problem like this?

Anyways... what are you currently working on?

  1. Love the quilt Kristy! I have never tried, but am quite keen to give the scrappy quilting a go. We have a Granny (Mum in law) who loves to quilt and does an amazing job.... so I leave them up to her :) Have thought about doing a night class though.

    I have a man and three children who leave their shoes and in fact all their belongings all over the house! Drives me crazy...

  9. love the fabrics for the quilt!
    And the shoe thing! Yeeeeessss! That drives me CRAZY! I've had to stop saying something because it just drives me so darn nuts how he forgets and shoves at least three pairs of shoes under the bed so that (a) in middle of the night you trip over them and stub your toe often on the heaviest shoe in the house and (b) that he's hunting high and low for them when we have to go out and can't find them!

  13. I love the colours in your quilt. Those large blocks of colour will work brilliantly. I hope the free motion stuff works out. I used to begin with safety pins, stitch in the ditch on major seams before letting loose with the freemotion. This way everything is well held together and the pins are out of the way, before you start on the freemotion.
