Patchwork is finished. Now I just need to quilt and bind and it's off my hands!



(My Miss Nearly-Five just said, "nice quilt, mummy!")

Anaximander, I LOVE that design. It's on the list for the next one.

Well, I made it work. I cut up the FQ into small squares and incorporated some other neutrals into my signature "scrappy" style. Here's a small bit:



It's taken about ten years off my life but I think it will look fantastic. Will post in completed projects when I'm done!!

Let me just say, AAARRRGGGGGGHHHHHH.

Why do I do this to myself??!!???!!!

A friend saw the quilt I sold on eBay and asked if I could make him one for his friend back in the US, who has a little boy. He wondered if I could add an Australiana element to the patchwork.

I had been looking for an excuse to go fabric shopping, and so picked up a 1/4 of this fantastic vintage Holden cars print against a map of Australian roads:



It wasn't until about 24 hours after about 16 solid hours of quilting that I realised I had a serious problem. Every single design I tried sucked. Then I realised:

IT'S NOT ME.

The colour scheme. The "cutesy" aspect of the print. NONE OF IT IS MY STYLE.

And I've already told him about my purchase.

So now I just have to make it work!!!

Deep breath. I'm starting all over again.

Thanks so much @amalgam. Yes, I pretty much just pick a corner and start stitching. With a walking foot, of course. My piecing comes together randomly so why not the quilting too!! Just for something different. Who says that it all has to be symmetrical straight lines??! X

My community womens' sewing group was donated a free stall at the local artisan market recently, so I went rummaging through my stash for some UFOs to quickly quilt up. I found a stack of HSTs and made this quilt:



I'm going to do the same for all my other UFOs and see how they go. It's coming into winter here, so hopefully it's a good time to do a run on these. C&C welcome!

30  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Can anyone help me with my overlocker (serger) problem?? on: December 05, 2010 08:24:31 PM
I have no idea what happened but all of a sudden my overlocker (serger) is behaving weirdly. Here's a few shots of the stitching:





I've rethreaded the whole thing, I've fiddled with the tension, and it's still doing this weird undulating thing. I'm freaking out because I'm supposed to be making something for a friend for a Christmas swap and I won't be able to unless my machine is behaving itself. I also can't take it to a repair shop without at least a two-week wait for a service.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
