Five trees remain
I put border 4 on my Marcelle Medallion quilt this morning! I used a different method for making the flying geese so I was able to get four geese out of (1) 4.5” square & (4) 2.5” squares. When I added previous borders, the length of my sides got a little wonky & so I had to add small strips to three of my four flying geese borders to get them to fit. This quilt is so far from perfect but I love it & I’m not going to quit.
Thanks for the encouragement with the tadots! Moving on to #border4 #flyinggeese!! Loving it! #marcellemedallion #mmqal #libertylove #quilting #quilt
#marcellemedallion border 3 is escaping me. It’s so thin I’m worried about doing anything busier but I’m not sure I’m sold on the #tadots. #quilting #quilt #workinprogress #libertylove
In an effort to use space more efficiently (me), and for aesthetic purposes (my boyfriend), my boyfriend & I made our own ironing board this weekend!
We got a 3/4” thick piece of plywood cut to the dimensions of the workspace (the top of an old stereo turned cabinet), and used a staple gun to cover it with a layer of heat-resistant batting (I use Insul-Bright), canvas, and fabric that we both love: Lush Uptown by Erin Michael for Moda.
It’s amazing. The firmness of the wood makes for a better pressing table than your standard ironing board. And it looks much nicer, too!!
