This week I'm hoping to get some Dear Jane binding done. Good to be able to have some easy hand sewing to cosy up in front of the TV with!
I'm also starting to look through my quilt books for a longer term project. I had thought that once I'd finished 'Dear Jane' I'd move on to 'Dear Hannah' by the same author. However, now that I've taken it down and had a good look at it, I realise that it seems a bit schizophrenic. I'm not sure that the pieced blocks and the applique blocks (Brenda P mixed blocks from two historic quilts) work together as well as I'd like them too. Perhaps I'll take a selection of each and make two smaller projects.
I've also wondered about Susan Briscoe's 1718 coverlet. Hard to choose what to do! I rather think that my mini storm at sea might be resurrected in the meantime. Small and not too demanding in terms of brain power!
Any other suggestions? I'm after something that it is a mix of machine and hand sewing, lots of variety moving to a 'common goal' of a finished quilt.
