Help Arrived!

Remember Here

My fairy god sister Leah come to the assistance of her big sis and gave some simple instructions which worked brilliantly!!!!!

1) Un pick the stuff up - done
2) Pin up again like you did - done
3) Start the stitching from the centre of your work and head outward!! Really?
4) Take your time and trust the process, it will work!!

I am so happy with the result and have a look at the back!!!! Its just what I wanted. If I do this again I will change the bobbin cotton color to match the backing so the additional tacking wouldn't be so obvious but this is only a minor change.

I am still thinking of purchasing a walking foot, I'll keep you posted.

@Clair - Ooooh I'm a bit of a stubborn bugger!!! I keep going until I get it right. You should have seen me with my pants pattern, it was like I was possessed!!!

I'm so glad it worked - you can't be the Sister Authority if your advice is crap!

It looks amazing - who's it for?

Leonie, it looks awesome. I LOVE the colours! And the quilting looks great. Wow thats amazing for a first attempt... you should see mine, they are appalling. I have a walking foot and it does make it alot easier.

@leah, I was thinking it would be for kels sister, Kate. She is due to have her first baby in nov and its about the size of the quilt you made for sharon, the one ideal for the pram. I still have the binding to go Arrrrh, but I have to take it in and choose the color!! I might need your help with the binding yet. I'll yell out..... love ya bones xx
