Fooling around

I've just been mucking about with hand-dyed bits and chinese coins. Or possibly strings, or even strata. Whatever you call them, it's dead simple - bits sewn together and into long bits sewn together. How was that for a fabulous explanation of my technique - do you see why I don't have any tutorials here?

Just in blues, with a bit of yellow for lift. And then machine-quilted in those parallel lines. A bit lumpy at the moment as you can see. I'd like to blame the non-flash camera phone but it's not its fault at all ... it's the sewing. I like the double tracks though. This was a lot of fun to put together and will make a nice something. Mini quilt?

Chemo week here so more reading blogs than sewing. And throwing out the occasional comment, it's quite tempting to let loose the sound of your own voice. Fingers. Keyboard. When real life gets back on track the internet may well weaken its pull.

  1. The parallel lines of quilting look really great Lynley- simple but very effective. Take care, happy reading.
