Its been almost two months now since I last blogged or posted any crafty finishes. Today is my come back day, and I feel very happy about it. My world was revolving around my elder son and his central board examinations, which also for him was a path that would lead him to a new phase and direction of his life. Not that I had to teach him or anything but just being there for him every moment was important at this juncture and that is what I did.
I am happy now that he has completed his exams and is now relaxing before he starts his new academic year next week. Last two months I have not done any sewing at all, but I was going for my hand quilting classes and working on a wall hanging.
It was lovely to see my wall hanging shaping up and now I think, I have got a hang on making blocks, applique, sashing, batting …. in short all the quilting fundas…. I am really enjoying doing this and I feel great to show off my work in progress.
These are the four blocks that I made to finally make into a wall hanging, and …… here’s my joined blocks……….
I have sandwiched and basted it and now begins my quilting stitches, which I am practicing on a piece of sandwiched fabric, The challenge is to get equal length and equidistant stitches. I am slowly getting a hang of it but not yet perfect. Here are my trials… First one is the front of my fabric, and the second one is the back.
I am sorry since the fabric is plain the stitches are not very visible.
I would also like to thank Selvie , who is an active committee member of the The Muscat quilt guild, and my teacher on hand quilting.
I would really love to get your lovely comments, from everyone of you out there…. .
To my few blogging friends…. I am sorry I had disconnected myself , for a while but now on I will try to be regular to visit and comment on your blogs. Please continue keeping in touch.
