I shadow quilted the pinwheel shapes.
Using the Big Shot and Strip die 658328 http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/658328/sizzix-bigz-xl-25-die-strips-2-1-2-wide I cut 6 strips of orange stripey fabric for the binding.
I just have to slip stitch the binding to the back of the quilt and maybe add some quilting in the borders, which are 4 1/2" wide.
Now I'm going to make another quilt using the same die - http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/658661/sizzix-bigz-die-tessellating-pinwheel-4-1-2-assembled to make a quilt with elephants on it for Abi, big sister aged 3.
I was going to make a quilt for Eve who is 5 but she has just started making her own quilt - photos and progress reports to follow!!
as for progress on my sewing room - the sorting and tidying still continues - but I am going to try re-organising before moving room - it will be so much quicker !
today I've been to run 2 workshops at Oh Sew Sweet Shop nr. Barnsley - http://www.ohsewsweetshop.co.uk / - we had a lot of fun -
and of course I had to buy some fabric!!!
That's all for now until next week, enjoy your weekend.
