I haven't been able to update the blog for a little while. Blimmin work always gets in the way!
So here is an update on my baby quilt.
As you can see, I've put a white border all around the edge and am now putting a pink border around the edge. The back of the quilt will be made from the same material as the border.
Thank you to all of you who read my blog and take the time to comment. Thank you so much. It means a lot to me.
I have another question. I've watched lots of youtube tutorials on how to add borders to quilts. The majority say that you measure 3 times and then take the average. Why can't I cut longer and then trim to size? It would be so much easier! Does the same apply when I am adding borders to blocks?
I had my monthly meeting at the quilting group I go to. We had a talk by a lovely lady called Helen Howes. She was taught by Jennie Rayment and her quilts are fabulous. I like the way she doesn't stick to rules and applies her own spin on things. You can see more about Helen on her website here. The meetings are only held once a month but I really look forward to them.
I've been up to quite a bit of sewing and hopefully I'll be able to share some more with you soon.
