Marg Day 2

DAY 2

Before Day 2 could commence I had a bit of tacking to do. There is method to what appears madness. It is easier to fill in small sections of blank spaces with applique rather than a huge blank space. What you put in one space can easily be mirror imaged with a grid system. I apologise as I am sitting on the bed and in my nightie. As it happened that night I could not sleep so at 2am I was stitching away trying to while away the hours. Over excited I expect.

 

Today was about making binding to go around the large central oval. Strips had to be joined and totalling around 60" or 1.5metres. Think you can just see my drawn wavy line around the outside edge. This is a lot of applique and it certainly took me several nights to finish it.
 
 

My friend Marie who was sitting opposite me said that all she could see when she looked up was pink so I gave her my camera. Wish I could say that gorgeous pink bag belonged to me but no, it belongs to Marg. The cake was not mine. I was trying to be good.

 

The quilt on the right is what I am aspiring to do .

I also had the delightful pleasure to be sitting next to Little Miss Alice quilt all week and the detail is just mouthwatering.

 

Happy Stitching.

Shirley.
