My mother-in-law encouraged me to join in with a quilt club hosted by Cherry Pie Bernina (Levin) – for some reason that link isn’t working at the time of writing this.
Basically you pick a colour theme and and then get 1 block at a time with instructions and hints on how to put it together. I was a bit late to start as I was busy with the Kid’s Clothing Week Challenge. I’m really enjoying trying some different quilt styles and techniques.
hmmm … I did iron them I promise!
… I blame these little curious hands!
I’ve just about caught up, just about to start my third block – a twin star.
In other crafting endeavours, I was asked how I made my necklace I was wearing in yesterday's Wardrobe Wednesday post.
It’s pretty simple really, I just got a long strip of fabric which I folded in half right sides together, sewed down the long raw edge and one end and then turned it in the right way. Then I tied knots and put beads inside or outside as I desired (I used beads of all sizes – they were just what I had.)Then I hand sewed up the open edge to finish.
You can tie it at whatever length you want.
I hope that makes sense Jess?
