This quilt has been a challenge. I have unpicked a lot. And not just once..
Due to my first thread choice shredding and breaking, a lot of unpicking was necessary.
And again.....I thought I'd free motion petal shapes inside the two stars, notice the particularly lovely convergence of lines in the centre - cue unpicking.
At this point I had a change of mind and decided to embroider baby R's details in the stars.
But due to the hot mess left by all that unpicked thread I thought the quilt should be washed to get rid of all the holes before I stared the embroidery. Which meant I needed to apply the binding. I machine stitched the binding onto the front before heading to Edinburgh for a few days over the school half term.
During the drive there and back I was able to hand stitch the back of the binding down. One bit of good news is that I finally seem to be getting the hang of turning the corners.
