September Technique - Kantha

Brenda, I have had this piece of real Kantha for years. I thought that I may have tried it but I haven't so I can't help you. It must have been on my 'to do list' and then I forgot about it. I've got a cat pattern somewhere that I would like to try.

There is a small needlecase in the project section of this site called 'Wheel of Fortune'.

Love the colours and setting of this one, Eileen.

Started quilting again after a break. Trying to get my 2020  Temperature Quilt top finished as I need the wall!

Photo shows Jan to August. Have completed Sept and Oct and working on Nov so nearly there.

Thank you, Rosemary, my lovely calendar has arrived. The printing quality is very good. Who made the liberty octagon?

Thank you for dealing with the idiot who paid into the wrong account, forcing you to remember an old password!!!! Sorry.

Lovely work ladies. Fiona the 9 patch is so cheerful and haven't seen the snowflake design before, but love the modern vibe.

Good to see your gifted quilt looking so good in situ, Eileen.

Christmas Roundrels finished. I laced them across the back. Don't know if they will stay in this space between the doors in the hall.

Rosemary, I have copied your roundrel wall hangings. How did you finish the back? Did you cover it with a backing circle of fabric?

I bought some 9" embroidery hoops. They were a little bit small, so I bought some 10" hoops and they were too big. Went with the 9". I have an idea of hanging them as a set of 3, but don't know if this will work yet.

Thanks for the idea.

If it's around £5.35 or cheaper, lol, + p&p then please count me in, Rosemary. Many thanks.

Here is my Christmas wall hanging. Used a Hoffman digital print panel. Metallic thread machine quilting. Went a bit ott with the embellishments as there are approx 340 sequins and beads hand sewn on. It sparkles!

Really love these Rosemary. They are beautiful.

Here you go Sylvia - well done.

Not my work - Sylvias pot

On my phone I download it into my gallery. I then rotate it and crop a little bit and then save. With a little bit of luck it stays the right way up!

Got an email the other day. 'Quilt Now' has ceased publication. The pandemic and the fact that the distributors are so selective in the shops that they supply must make sales very difficult. Getting less and less quilting magazines.

Only just seen your quilt Maria, and you have probably finished it by now. Looks fine. Maybe a darker outside border to tie it all together? What did you come up with?


P.S. The nautical quilt is great and if my memory serves me well, I can see my fabric.

You are a clever lot. Lovely makes. Well done.

I haven't done any quilting for a while, been dressmaking instead, but the quilting urge is coming back.

That is so pretty Rosemary. A lovely present and I bet you are having fun finding little gifts to put in the stockings.

Don't know if I am going to do anything for Christmas this year. Although I do have a fabric panel with a digital print of a Christmas tree, ( a different one from last year). This one is mainly blue and would go in my front room, so I'll ponder on that. Mind you I will have to find it first!

Not doing major quilting at the moment. Bought an incredibly cheap notebook laptop. Quickly made a slip case for it - 2 x dog fabrics, 80/20 wadding, hair tie and one of my vintage mother of pearl buttons for fastening.

Rosemary, love your underwear/ mask rules! Commando ha, ha!

Well done Rosemary. It is lovely. The striped fabric is a great choice. It keeps turning up in newsletters that I receive so I think it is going to be very popular this year. Too technical for me.

Brenda, it is certainly scary to be in the at risk age group. I have become a bit of a hermit. Also clearing out the spare room. Found things I have lost for years, culling the magazines and filling the bins. Managed to give away 2 large bags of 4ply machine knitting yarn. Hurray. Suspect there will be a lot of yarn bombing going on around here! Major problem at the moment is the quilts that I have made for charity and no where to take them.

So hoping that we will see light at the end of the tunnel soon.

Take care all.
