Thankfully, I've got my Janome back! It sounds like it is running kind of loud so I need to check it a bit before I do too much more sewing. Here is my latest project. I'm using a panel that wasn't printed straight so I decided to trim the blocks a little wonky after I added the goldish fabric. The blocks measure 10.5 inches.
I can't decide which fabric to use for the binding: red, gold or blue print. But now as I look at this photo, I think I should find some dark blue. This will be a little wall-hanging either for home or my office.
So Susie may have been onto something! This doesn't look bad at all. It currently measures 87 x 58 as it lies in pieces. When sewn together it will be a bit smaller. I may do a stop border to go next to the binding. So my goal now is to make all the blocks I will need-seven maybe?
It's a finished top. Well, I say finished. I'm going to have to shorten the top and bottom borders-I think they are too long to fit the batting! I bought a twin size batting on sale for this quilt. Still need to make the back and then I can send if off to Karen the Quilter.
