Long time no chat! I guess life gets busy sometimes! My sewing machine is at the repairman's again, I am trying a new guy who seems to know what is what, so we will see!
Anyway I have a quilt to show you, it has been finished for a week but the first lot of photos were blurry due to little fingerprints on the camera lens….
This is the front. It is a french braid quilt with black sashing between every piece. It looks like lead light! It should have 4 braids running the length but I used the 4th across the top to make it longer, I should have made a 5th braid because doing this made it a bit narrow.
The boys quilts on their beds and a rare glimpse of BW! I seem to have trouble getting the size of the quilts right for single beds. BW’s is really not wide enough, it could be 12” wider. TP’s is about 8” too short. But they do the job of providing warmth and that is the main thing!
