Weaving and Quilting Projects

The first time, I threaded and knotted a board along the one end and tried weaving, but left it when I came home, I thought five threads woven at once would show the warp. Today I was shown five colours together is better, a quicker way, the weave pushes down easily, I got on with it! I brought along a wool match for the sand, pools, purple rocks, sea and sky with a multi coloured thread of silver, pale blue and grey, it is looking good so far!

Another thing I am going to do I have decided, I am going to teach myself to quilt! I have seen so many beautiful quilts on peoples blogs and I now really want to make one myself! I have a brilliant book. The Quilters Bible that I bought quite a while ago. It is described as an indispensable guide to patchwork, quilting and appliqué and it is. I am really enjoying reading, learning.
I am going to make a scrap quilt hopefully. So far I have cut up a few squares of left over fabrics and will buy more. I would like to try the quilt-as-you-go way of quilting it will be easier for a beginner, maybe!

  1. Your weaving is coming on beautifully. And I'm sure you'll have no trouble with quilting. It's much easier than bag making :)

  2. Thank you Janine :) I am hopping it is easier to do!
