Sew Delicious - Sew Along Completed

Howdy,

You might remember that I was joining the awesome Ros of Sew Delicious in a sew along. Well I'm a little late to end it due to some unforeseen things happening at the mansion this last fortnight (sickness, dead cars, ect) but I finally finished, yay!


Here she is from the back.




Here's the front.





It's so pretty, great tutorials by Ros which you can find over here, if you've never quilted before and it's something you want to try, give it a go.

I have to admit, while I have done some quilting I always round the corners or just overlock (serge) the edges, this time I stretched myself and did the mitered corners...so don't look too close at them but they aren't too bad.

My Mum a very experienced quilter will be pleased to see it done, I'm sure she dies a little on the inside every time she sees my usual edging/binding.

Thanks Ros for a great sew along even if I was late too finish.

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  14. It looks great, love the pink gingham backing. I've never been able to do binding along the edges. My grandmother would sew the back edge of the binding with the machine, then fold it to the front and hand sew it. Yeah, like that's going to happen around here! :)
