Port Lincoln, and home via Kadina, where I had a class on Saturday and Sunday. I took along my quilt to finish off the quilting. I got a lot done, because the weather was not so good, and I spent a bit of time in doors. We had a really big storm that lasted 2 days, and we were right by the beach. Bit scarey.
So, now my quilt is all finished, and at this very moment, in the washing machine. Now that is really scarey! I use a very mild detergent, and a couple of "colour catchers", but with so much cream and red, I worry what it is going to look like when it is done. I have to just walk away.
Once the quilt is washed, I lay it on the floor and block it. As you can see by the photo above it is pretty flat and square - a miracle! However, if it is not flat and square, then blocking it will make it that way. Way back here I posted on how I block a quilt .
This quilt is a combination of blocks from the Circuit Rider quilt, and those found in other places, that were complimentary. It has taken several years to complete, as it started life as 2 class samples, which I then pulled apart, sewed back together with more blocks. It actually has not got a top or bottom, but I had better decided which way it goes before I put the hanging sleeve. Also, I made a very wide binding on it. As there was no border, I thought that might give it a more finished look.
Wonder how that washing machine is going?....must not think about it.
