Just a glimpse

I added the borders and now the top is complete.

I’m thinking about quilting it by hand, there are nice patterns to fill in the big spaces in the diamonds.  I still have to ponder about it.

Working on my first PIP

Hi there!

We’re having an incredibly mild winter, no snow around here.

I am not complaining, there’s a positive side also, no snow shovelling!

Stephanie’s invitation to be a Pipster sounded very good to me-no rules, no pressure.

There is one I started last year, it is a quilt from the book Material Obsession from Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. I loved how the kites were sewn together, they make a beautiful block – though they are a bit tricky to sew.

These were the first ones, not completely sewn and still hanging on the wall:

12 blocks ready and the top is sewn,

but what about the borders?…

It took me a while to find the right fabrics. The chosen one is Lark from Amy Butler, a beautiful collection.
