Paula's Quilt

On Sunday afternoon Paula came over to play on the doover (the quilting frame).  As it was her first time I set her up with a practice piece.

It didn't take long until she had the hang of it so we loaded up her beautiful Bento Box quilt. - the colours are fabulous.

The first row is always a bit nerve-wracking but she was off like a champ and I think she's hooked.

I even talked her into having a go at an easy free-hand border design (pseudo feathers) - excellent first effort.

Two more borders to go and she's done.

I've quilted the hexagons for my doctor's bag and the piece is now on the way to being made into a bag.

I love that bright quilt and your bag is lovely Lynda. I loved the picture on the wall in the background about making lovely things. Just perfect for you.

Happy days.

Oooh, that looks so fun -- intimidating, but fun. I'd love to have time to play on a long arm. Love those little hexagons -- very pretty!
