Some sewing this week

I finished quilting the little top I showed you last week.
It took quite a while! I didn't realise how long it would take to quilt, but there are lots of little spiral patterns there!


Here are a couple more photos so you can see the quilting stitches more closely.



I am quite happy with how it turned out.

Next I will bind it and turn it into a cushion.

I hope to continue practicing my machine quilting and quilt something a little larger next.


I made one hexie flower this week. The photograph doesn't show the true colours, unfortunately.


I am having trouble adding more photographs tonight, so I will do another post.
