Sewing Va Va Voom!

At last I've started to quilt my "dining room" quilt. As I explained previously I lost my sewing va va voom for a while but it's on its way back - Hurrah. I was reading the hugely inspirational blog anyonecanquilt and was amused to see the line "For goodness sake, just sew woman!" in the header. Ah ha I thought, yes Maria, just do it and I did.


So, this is how far I've got. I decided to use straight line quilting with a different design in each block. The sashing has three parallel lines stitched with variagated embroidery thread. I think I like it but the jury is still out. I really wish my photos would look better when uploaded onto blogger.



I'd love to get it finished this weekend but I don't think I'll be able to sneak off for long enough!

I love Sarah's blog. I don't know how she machine quilts big quilts on her regular machine! Your quilting looks great to me.

It's looking very good! I really like your idea to quilt a different design in each block.

Glad to hear I am not the only one who has been in a bit of a sewing slump. I'm happy to say I've come out of it, and I am sure you will, too!

Ooo that is pretty. I love your idea of each block having a design of it's own. Aqua is so pretty and Summery.

Sorry it's taken a while to catch up with you. It's been one of those weks/months. :-)
