Sew In No 4

I spent Friday Night Sew In quilting on my “1 of 10” quilt. I purposely let the inserted strip of fabric drag a little this way and that to get a more organic feeling to it, but now I’m thinking it looks kind of sloppy. Oh well, there is no chance that I’ll unpick all the stitching, I have enough problems getting it done by the deadline already as the entry form has to be in by Friday with measurements and all. Maybe adding some hand stitching will bring the wonkiness more out. I have a few more weeks before it has to be shipped off and plenty of time to put on binding, sleeve and embellishments.


I also cut out more cow shapes for two Moo Point quilts. These will have two cows facing each other like they are having a conversation. They will be appliquéd onto a worn out flowery duvet cover that I got from MIL and a table cloth with machine embroidered flowers.

So, did you have a creative week?

  1. It's hard to tell, but the fabrics are so organic I am sure it will look great when it is finished. Movement and sway! Can't wait to see the big reveal of the whole quilt! Moos, as usual are so adorable.

  2. Så masse flott du lager - riktig godt i farta skjønner jeg. Prosjektet ser spennende ut. For min del må jeg prøve å få til en konfirmasjonsgave til neste helg...

  6. Love the cows mooing to each other. I cut and sewed squares for the two quilt alongs I'm following, so not really creative, but pleasant just the same.
