The pattern on this reminded me of when my Grandmother told me about playing “ Chucky stones in the Clyde” this was back so many years when she lived in Scotland. I have tried to do what we call Skipping Stones, but didn’t manage to get many skips at all.
This was another stunning pattern from Sandy at
and we are so lucky to have her share with us the BOM tutorials. I did a trial with 2 blocks, quilted it,and didn’t like it at all, so tried this with a spiral .If I said I was happy with it, that would be an understatement. This is maybe the one I like the most of any recent sewing and quilting projects. I started the spiral by having the centre printed onto paper, then stitched through the paper with no thread. This gave me a good start, and with the guide bar, managed to keep the width between the rows fairly even. The walking foot was so good, and not a pucker on the back.Wow, maybe that is a first.
An inside shot , and a second one outside on the lawn, in a sheltered spot, away from the southerly wind.
I wanted to do an OOB, or Out Of Bounds, but have run out of time.We are already into the 30th April,and the link is for the 29th, so I am very happy NZ is a day ahead ( almost).
Quotation of the day, author unknown,
The greatest challenge in life
is discovering who you are….
the second greatest
is being happy with what you find”
