Trying my hand at quilting 

Happy Wednesday lovely people!

After admiring for a while all the lovely quilt work from Claire on her blog, I really wanted to give it a go. 
So I followed her advice and started small, with a 2 block table runner. I used some scraps and I had a lot of fun. 


For the back I just chose a plain black fabric I had leftover from my Harry Potter robes. 

For the actual quilting part, I just followed the sewing lines I already had. 



The last part will be to bind it, I’ll probably make my own binding using either the blue or black fabric, I haven’t decided yet 🙂

    ooooh well done!
    an excellent idea to start with something small, so you can work through each stage (piecing, quilting & binding) and actually finish a project. Do you think you’re going to try another project? I hope you do ^^

    oh and if this first experience raised any questions . . . don’t hesitate to email and ask. I was a beginner not very long ago, and I can remember all the questions I had.

    • Thanks so much Claire for all your help already 😉 I’ll do more sewing when I’m back home from the holidays. I hope you’re not too hot, we were in south France 2 weeks ago and it was insanely warm.

        we’re not actually in the South, more Lyon way, but temps are going to be in the mid 30s again this week, so yep, too hot for me ^^
