quilt update #3



well, would you look at that; not only do i have half of my quilt sewn together, i also already have pixel's approval!

there are four more strips to sew on (to the left hand side) and that will be the top of my quilt finished. i'm starting to freak out a little bit about sewing the rest of it together- just this piece itself is proving to be a mission on my battered little machine.
i've started looking into easy ways of binding etc., and also thinking about what sort of stitching i'm going to do for the actual "quilting" bit.

all in all though, i'm still loving the process of making a quilt, and am really hoping the rest of it comes together relatively easily. if you want some more quilty inspiration, check out my pinterest board |here| and also check out fran's amazing quilt that she blogged about last week |here|.

i'm suffering from a rotten spell of chronic headaches at the moment which have pretty much dominated my whole week, but here's hoping i feel a little better tomorrow- crafty sundays are what it's all about :)

isn't that right pixel...

  6. It's looking brilliant! I used bias binding on my quilt edges and machine stitched it on then folded and hand sewed, its time consuming but gives a lovely finish. Good luck! x
