Quilt stage 2
The triangle pieces have been 505'd to the base fabric (above) , tacked down and removed from the frame.
I am now at the stage of putting on the surface embellishments. Need to get this right after all this work. I keep sitting and looking at it and worrying about spoiling it. Have sponged some gold fabric paint on parts of it - the sparkle in the sand.
Tomorrow my OH is off at 5.45am!!! to the Rally show at the NEC. He engineers and pit crews for a rally team so I will have the day to myself.
Should be able to machine the joining patterns between all the triangles and hopefully some digitised images. It will be a 'go with the flow' job - each stage determining the next. So.. fingers crossed.
Thanks Vivien for suggestion re hedge - left, right or centre???
