It was all go last weekend for our final quilting sleepover for 2008. We now have Evelyn's Bees quilt ready for donation (except the label that I need to print). This one has batting and backing rather than our usual polartec backing. We learned about tacking the layers together (rather than pinning) ready for quilting - much easier to manage under the machine.
We had fun photographing two finished quilts on our new "quilt photography frame" AKA our new carport with curtain rod. It works really well although the photographer needs an assistant to hold the umbrella to keep the sun off the lens.
In 2009 we will start by finishing up Leonie's Flowers and Helen's Stars. We even have two Mystery Metre lucky dip parcels left.
So, if you need a quilt photographed or if you would like help with layering and tacking your quilt, bring it along to a quilting weekend. I'm also happy to provide the table, carport and fingers between our weekends so just let me know.Leonie made us all a Christmas surprise - gingerbread ladies and men. Thanks Leonie.
