I have finished my autumn throw for the conservatory settee. It was extremely difficult and I nearly gave up as each part of the leaves were different colours and there were triangles every where!! LOL It is only the second quilt I have made so not for new learning quilters. The border is sewn on but I still have to catch stitch the back. Although it is far from perfect I am extremely proud of it, and it looks lovely on the settee. I think it might have to be a Christmas one too, although by January I should have finished quite a few of my projects so I might make some thing in bluey colours.
I bought the fabric at the NEC quilting show in August, which was very reasonable, all fat quarters. One thing is I have learnt a lot making this, and it's as I said before, you can read the books, watch videos, listen to other peoples experiences and advice on how to quilt, but you have to have a go yourself to really learn how to sew it!
I am now back to my cross stitching although having seen Hazel's stripy crochet blanket, I have ordered the yarn!!
So its your fault Hazel that even though I have loads of cross stitch on the go, I am now starting a crochet project!
Happy stitching or quilting or knitting or crocheting everyone!
(Just remembered that I have socks on the go too for Christmas pressies!)
