I'm pleased to show you how very cunning I've been with this project... remember I wanted it bigger.... wider and not a lot longer?... tadaaaa, this is what I've done. It doesn't mean I am a genius or anything but I quite like it actually... very balanced, in a slightly wonky way... perfect!
The backing is ready, I do like mine to co-ordinate with the front, if I can of course, and I much prefer to piece a few fabrics together, adding a little more interest... using up a little of my fabulous stash, these are from my never ending Brazilian fabrics.
So, I am ready to make the sandwich. These are the threads I will use. On the right is Aurifil, fantastic thread, a dream to quilt with, it will be on top. On the left, Cotty thread... I can only use this in the bobbin because, no matter how hard I try, it will NOT sew nicely on my Aurora... not just this one spool, almost every one I have can only be used in my bobbin... weird eh!
and one of us is getting fed up of waiting... EVERY flippin' time I stand up from the machine she jumps up too, wagging the question, "now is it, are we going now?" ... so I am going now, I can't stand it any longer.... ha ha ha
