Carolina Row progress and Bargello revealed

Am getting on well with the quilting, the new Bernina is easier than the old one and the learning curve is easing off slightly. I find machine quilting quite tiring so want to take it slowly to avoid too much undoing but must crack on. Christmas is getting closer and I'm away for a week or so before without access to the machine.

I have ordered a waterproof pen highly recommended for the label. Nothing I've done has been labelled yet, though I have signed one in free motion so need to try harder to be a 'proper' quilter.

This post needs a picture so here is one I prepared earlier - the quilt that was signed. My first ever made for Harriet to have at uni.Got a bit carried away with the Kaffe Fassett style photos in my garden but I did use some of his fabrics.

Bargello Quilt and Lining

Harriet liked the bag too 


  1. Machine quilting is quite tiring - I find 30 or 40 minutes is enough for me. A glass of wine also helped me "let rip". But it does take practice so don't give up. Once I started to get better I started to enjoy it a lot more!!

  2. Am following your advice Pippa and it helps, many thanks - hic.
