This has nothing to do with anything, it's just a Jewel song I can't get out of my head today - probably because I've played it over and over and over. I do that a lot - if I like a song I play it all the time - drives Sandra nuts as I do it in the car too!
I got one of the strippie quilts finished.
I quilted it with Bubbles and think it gives it the whimsical look I was going for. Actually, I quilted all three with this panto and have the binding machine sewn on the other two, but it isn't hand stitched down yet.
I managed to slice the top of my finger yesterday while I was cleaning my machine - did something totally stupid and now I'm paying for it, so the hand stitching will have to wait for a couple of days until my finger recovers.
I've had this fabric for ages too - bought a bolt of it on eBay - isn't it cute! It would be even cuter if I had taken the time to iron it before taking the picture, but there is only so far I'll go for my readers.
I've been waiting for someone to have a little girl so I could do something with this - I had envisioned it as a border on a girly quilt. After making these strippie quilts, I have a whole new vision in mind - this would make a great strippie and I can pull out some of the colours in their dresses for the strips. Who would have thought something so simple could be so much fun!
Edited to add: Sandy asked what thread I used - on this one I used Bottom Line and So Fine. On one of the others, I used Superior's new Lava thread and I loved it (used Bottom Line in the bobbin). I got a sample with my new machine and I'm going to order some - it's cheaper than King Tut and comes in some luscious colours. Stay tuned for pictures.
