I'm trying - I really am.
I've been doing a lot of web surfing. Trying to find things that will give me some inspiration.
Gwen's new book, Liberated Medallion Quilts, arrived about a week ago. I took one look and put it on the shelf with the others. No inspiration!
I've also been having a lovely time on Pinterest, adding the odd photo, but generally looking through to see if there was anything which might just kick start the sewing juices.
I spotted a sweet pincushion with a link to the tutorial and hopped over to have a look.
Ummmm - just might be what I need to get my confidence back.
Isn't it cute! You can find the tutorial here.
Then I remembered a mini quilt that needed binding.
My friend Julie shared a binding tutorial she's recently found. I'm always keen to shorten the time I have to do, what I think, is the worst part of quilting. I hate binding with a passion!
So I hopped over to that tutorial (click on the link in Julie's post here), printed it off and got to work.
Apart from a slight argument joining the two ends together (which I always have anyway), it worked like a dream!
A mug rug/table mat for the kitchen table as I can't think what else to do with it!
Now I think a little bit of stash fondling is in order and then I might chance my hand at machine quilting The Young One's Music is Magic quilt, which I don't think I've shown here before.
