Siblings Together Quilt Top

The great thing about awful weather is that you can't really do much useful gardening and can skive off and do sewing instead! It was a productive, if not lucrative day. I actually managed to finish piecing my quilt top (bar sashing round the edge). It's not perfect:


(actually that's not the worst one, there's a real horror), and there's still a long way to go but this is what it looks like now:


I haven't decided yet how to quilt it - by hand, or machine.  I've only machine quilted a doll's quilt on my Brother and I don't know how it (he?) or I will stand up to it.  Either way I'd like to do shadow quilting round the outside, and then take it from there.  Meanwhile I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!

  2. It's looking good, and sewing is definitely not skiving!!

    You and your machine will be fine with the shadow quilting so definitely have a go, you will rattle through it in no time.
