The eagle-eyed amongst you might have spotted that I bought a Sandie Lush pattern at Festival. Those of you who know me probably thought it was a present for someone else - it isn't! I hear gasps of astonishment all round, a HAND quilting project??? Yup, that's the plan. One of my good quilting buddies has made the most exquisite cot quilt and raved about how relaxing and enjoyable it was to make. She helped me choose the pattern at Festival, and now I'm set to go. One little teeny bit of information she didn't mention - just how long it takes to get the pattern from the paper onto the fabric LOL! My arms really ache from doing it all at the window (it's taken several sessions over 3 days), next time I do anything like this I will beg, borrow or steal (or make!) a proper light box. I've marked it up with a washaway pen, fingers crossed it disappears when I wash the quilt. PS - don't hold your breaths for any updates on this quilt, it's one thing to say I'm going to hand quilt something, it's another for it to get done :o)!
