Lily is my precious Husqvarna sewing machine, she came with that name and I think it suits her fine. She is an old lady of 10 now and yesterday we were re-acquainted after my holiday.
I got going on the Zakka project - week 13!
It's been a super series and a great chance to really get to know a book and do stuff from it.
This week's task is a couple of potholders designed bt Retro Mama and if you haven't started yours yet, it's worth popping over to Kim's blog where she has outlined some corrections and amendments to the binding.
I love that I have been quilting for ages but keep on learning by following others' techniques and by studying Kim's binding method I was chuffed to produce a seamless, circular binding for these potholders.
I was merrily sewing away when I recalled this project was meant to be monochromatic - oops, too late. I get a bit excitable when about to start something new and I was trawling through my stash and found the novelty, kitchenish Debbie Mumm. As it has been in my stash for at least 10yrs, I like to call it vintage DM, I might start a craze, what do you think?
Other modifications? I bound in cotton, not linen. I layered one linen, two 80/20, and one calico.
These babies are destined for Oz for my big sis - hope you like them!!
