Quilting The Girls

I enjoyed Saturday lunch with Mum and Jenni - we all went to see "About Time" - just as good the second time.  I've bought some of the music from the movie - great songs, especially "Il Mondo".  My brother and sister-in-law popped in on Saturday night - was lovely to see them.

Quiet day at home yesterday spent machine quilting Gingham Girls.  A couple of week ago I had a brainwave to use the frame to stretch out the three layers while pin basting.  Much better than leaning over the dining room table or breakfast bar (I've never been able to manage pinning on the floor).

Just starting.
Halfway.
Pretty backing.
Machine quilting all done.
There are plenty of spots to be hand-quilted (not my favourite passtime) along with buttons, beads and pearls to be added.  A bit of variety amongst my secret stitching.
