I just finished Part 2 of the Mystery quilt. It wasn't all plain sailing. The first border I sewed was too long, so I carefully unpicked all of the little squares and triangles, remeasured everything drew the seam allowances on the back of the appliqued circle squares and resewed. Perfect! I guess my quarter inch isn't as accurate as I thought it was! Some of the circles aren't dead centre, so I may take them off and reapplique them.
I really love the little touches in this quilt. The little hexagons in the corner of the border are adorable. That Di Ford is a great quilt designer!
I have just found and joined two really great Facebook groups - one for those making the Mystery quilt and one for those making quilts from Di Ford's Primarily Quilts book. I no longer feel alone!
I've also started quilting my oriental quilt. I'm using a Superior gold metallic thread.
I really wish I had more time to play and learn FMQ. I really enjoy it, but I MUST improve my setup. My sewing machine is higher than I would like and it reduces how well I can see what I'm doing ...and it makes my shoulders ache.
Only 10 days until our holiday - 14 nights cruising the Mediterranean - can't wait!
