I have half way finished the machine quilting for the Ohio Star with zig zag setting. I wrote about that last time. I need to have it totally completed by 24th August, so have been spending 30 minutes here and there over the last couple of weeks.
This put me into a bit of sad spot for a few days, until I got a Facebook message from a friend congratulating me on my prize at the Melbourne Quilt show. What prize???? was my reply. Yes, I did enter a quilt, but no one "official" had been in touch (and still has not) to tell me I had won something. I got a "runner up"in applique section apparently.......but have no idea if I actually won anything, and have not received my quilt back yet. More on this story next time.
I decided to start a new applique project. This is going to be my "traveling companion"for a while. It is just red and white, which means I don;t have to take lots of different fabrics or threads. Just one needle and one thread with the work.
I took some photos of the process. I showed the photos of the original HERE
I drew the design onto the back of the white background fabric and tacked in place
This is what the right side looks like when tacked in place
If you are wondering......I am working on the next pattern for the Past Reflections. Maybe over the coming weekend. Stay tuned!
