default Quilting

Post by Ploshkin on 14th July 2017, 1:13 pm

I do do things other than growing stuff. I've usually got some sewing on the go but I forget to post anything.
So, here are a couple of bits I've done. I started the chicken thing ages ago and it has been sitting waiting for eyes. It's going to go on a small bit of redundant wall in the hall. The other quilt I've just made for me because I enjoy the process. It's only the 2nd full sized quilt I have done and I'm really pleased with it. The stars have purple stars on the fabric but they don't show up in the picture.

As a sewer (as in sewing not sewage) myself I can see how much precise work and care must have gone into those, Ploshkin - they're terrific. And your choice of colours and patterns is lovely too. I particularly like the monochrome chickens with the little bits of red.

Both absolutely beautiful!

The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly in the air like birds and swim in the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers and sisters.
