A moment of panic ......................

I have been working on my 12" mini quilt, and was ready to add the binding, hanging sleeve and tag ............ the tag, ....................... where is the tag? .................. I am sure I put it somewhere safe :)


I checked the 3 drawers in the sewing cabinet, the 4 boxes of blocks, scraps and ribbons/embroidery threads .................. where did I put it?

Ahh, I found it .................. underneath my RSC14 project :)  such a relief :)

here is my finished mini quilt ...........  I was inspired by a cushion cover I saw on the net somewhere :)
 mmmmmmmm, another moment of panic ........... not really happy with that binding - it is a bit crooked and there is some puckering along the top.  Time for some unsewing :(

this a bit better :)
Whilst I am still not completely happy with what I have done :(  it has made me more determined to master the skill of appliqué!
The deadline for posting fast approaches!

I also need to pull my finger out and get my old Singer sewing machine off for a service - the Singer can do blanket stitch :)


Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
