It was a busy sewing weekend in the Tartankiwi household. I can't remember the last time that I completed so many sewing projects in a single weekend- it feels great! I don't think that I'll bomb you with all my makes in one long post, I'll spread them over a few posts to do each item justice.
I am really relieved that I finished off an example of the stack and slash quilt that I will be teaching at The Make Cafe.
I love this technique. Simple, forgiving and fun! After the precision that is required for paper piecing, it was great to have a simple project with very few rules.
I'll be honest, I had a bit of a nightmare with the quilting. I was using a different batting and my machine just refused to sew it neatly. The stitches are ugly and uneven, the straight lines are a bit wonky but it got to the point where I just had to keep going and get it finished. I'm just hoping that people in the shop don't look at the stitching too closely!
That said, its a pretty cute quilt don't you think!? I can't wait to teach the class and see what everyone comes up with.
