I’d hoped/planned to be all finished by the end of October, but I didn’t take into account it was Mum’s birthday on the 27th. This year I set myself a challenge to make everyone’s birthday gifts, so that was my priority.
I did get my top finished & I will be layering it today, unless I decide to change a little stitching. Using different colours has been tricky, as some don’t show up very well. So I’ll be taking a long, hard look, to see if I should use stronger colours on a few things.
I haven’t decided yet how I will be quilting it. It will most likely be a combination of hand & machine quilting. I can’t sit for long at the machine, so I might just machine quilt the edge of the white stitchery squares & then do some big stitch quilting on the borders.
I will be binding it with a red print & I’ll make the binding wider than usual so it becomes a thicker ‘frame.’
If you’d like to see the pressies I made for Mum they’re on my blog. Just scroll down a little.
