Firstly I would like to thank everyone for their great quilting suggestions for Space dust. I have managed to narrow it down and am just waiting for my sewing table to make it to London so I can get on with it - stupid snow!!
In the mean time I have been hibernating from the rubbish snowy weather, doing a lot of reading and a little bit of sewing. My Mum asked me to make a baby quilt for a friend, so I dug out a charm pack of Bungle Jungle and some Kona white and went for a more modern (ish) layout.
I have been wanting to try out circular quilting ever since I was lucky enough to receive this beauty from Laura Jane in the first ever Brit quilt swap. I have to admit, I did consider giving up after 10 minutes of quilt wrestling to start with , but it soon became a lot easier. I free motioned the middle to save my sanity!
I can see me using this style of quilting again as I love the effect it gives. The binding hand sewing part will of course be left to the last minute, as unlike Hadley (and her freakish love for binding), it is my least favourite part of quilt making ;-).
