Another coincidence of Chrissie and I is that we have both used variegated colour run thread this week. I have never used it before but it looked really pretty.
I have hand quilted Little M's quilt but encountered a disaster, I spilled a whole glass of red wine on it as it was all laid out on my lap during hand quilting...how? I threaded a new needle, looked away to chat to bloke for a second and as I pulled through the long thread I knocked the glass BAM!!
I washed it on 30 degrees even though it was only a quarter quilted but it didn't all come out. I might try washing it a bit hotter now that it is finished and shrinkage would be evenly distributed. So here is an artistic photo with it all rolled up because I don't want to traumatise anyone with a full frontal quilt photo with faded red wine stain included.
Never mind, she really doesn't care - I made it for her, that's what it is all about isn't it?
Thanks to all who have joined in with the brooch swap, I will pair up in a few days so there is still time for anyone out there to join in.
