Op die hond se stert

Hier is nie veel om te raporteer nie. My kwiltwerk het feitlik tot 'n stilstand gekom die laaste tydjie, en al waaraan ek werk is die groot kwilt.

Al die kwiltwerk is uiteindelik klaar, en ek is half-pad met die omboorsel. Om 8 meter se omboorsel vas te werk neem tyd... Dus gaan ek eerder vir julle foto's wys van die kwiltwerk. Dis eenvoudige reguitlyn kwiltwerk, al langs nie nate van die blokke/vorms af. Ek is versot op die resultaat.

Here is not much to report. My quilting has come to a stand still recently and all that I am working on is the big quilt.

All of the quilting is finished at last and I am halfway with the binding. To do 8 meters of binding takes some time, so I will show you some of the quilting instead. It is very simple straight line quilting, all along the seems of the blocks/forms. I really like the end result.





Ek het DMC veelkleurige gare (blou en rooi) gebruik vir die sterre en die gekleurde dele rondom dit. Vir die agtergrond en die rugkant het ek ooreenstemmende kleure gebruik.

I used DMC multi coloured thread (blue and red) for the stars and the coloured part around them. For the background and backing I used corresponding colours.

Dis dit vir eers! Groete tot later.

That is it for now! Regards until later.

  1. I am looking forward to seeing your completed quilt. Big quilts just take longer.

  2. There's always a light in the tunnel! Before you know the binding is done! Love the way you have quilted it. Straight seams often take more time compared to FMQ.
