>QFO 1 – Japanese-y

>This weekend’s been great for relaxing and getting some sewing done. I was travelling all week this week and was feeling tired… I was ready for a straight-forward job so I’ve finished my QFO job in time for the Canberra Quilter’s meeting this week.

My QFO job was to do the next step on a quilt. This sort of project is a bit different. The quilt has been pieced by one person, sandwiched and pinned by another and now quilted by me. What’s fun about this is it’s a quilting challenge as the quilt is different to one I’d make, I don’t know what errors were made in putting the pieces together , and I haven’t been thinking about how I might quilt it for months 😉

I’m happy now as I’ve got the quilting step done this weekend. I’ll now return the quilt for the binding to be added by a fourth Canberra Quilters quilting buddy before the project is passed on to someone in need in the community. I’ve got some quilting practice in and we’ll all feel good. 🙂



PS: Life got extra busy again in the second half of 2010, so I’m just getting back to my sewing and my blog. Lots of projects in the pipeline though…more news next time…

About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.
