The “Night Owl” is the second in a series of bird wall hangings by Anita Eaton.
The Six Hour Quilt is a fun easy online workshop... but at the same time, it introduces the student to processes that can be used for any level of quilt making.
This week I stepped away from quilting but of course, not from my sewing machine. My daughter is due to have her second baby and asked me to make some dribble bibs and gauzes so that's what I did - both very quick and easy. All I needed to do was run the overlocker around the gauzes - I made about a dozen or so, ranging in different sizes. The dribble bibs took a little longer.
Today I thought I would demonstrate how easy it is to quilt a design without marking your quilt top. I never trust those markers and even if I did, it can be quite difficult drawing on the fabric anyway. Drawing on tissue paper is much easier.
This week my penguin quilt was under the needle again.... this time to quilt it - one of my favorite parts of quiltmaking.
Inspiration for another baby quilt was gained a few months ago after visiting Oamaru's Penguin Encounter. It was quite chilly standing on the grassy bank at dusk waiting for penguins to return to their nesting beds for the night. The previous evening a good number had been spotted so we were hoping to get a glimpse, but alas, we saw only one.
