I have completed small and large projects by hand and by machine. I can spot my many errors but then are they errors or unique touches!.in the last few weeks I have attended a small group in my local town and have gained so much knowledge from the tutor and fellow attendees and hope to go along to the patchwork guild next week.
This present project is a design from the fennel shed in Buncrana called Wendy’s quilt and after a few initial problems with pieces of pattern missing and not enough fabric I am working away.
It will be my first sample of free motion quilting. I have purchased two new feet for my machine of which the quarter inch is already proving to be a dream.looking forward to using the stitch in the ditch foot also. To really go back in time below is a photo of patchwork I started approximately 36 years ago.
In. The midst of this is fabric from a night dress I made in high school, my mums sundress,fabric from a clown fancy dress I made in my teens,fabric from my o level needlework,my mums kitchen curtains I made,my bridesmaid dress for my cousin Mandy’s wedding,and even some from my present hall curtains I made 24 yrs ago.
