Ready for the show...
There's nothing like thinking ahead. The Quilts UK Show is on in Malvern in May and I have decided to put in a quilt, or possibly two. I have just finished the job I love to hate. Why do I find hand stitching so tedious? It is supposed to be the path to serenity.
Fortunately I found a nice long strip with a selvedge, so the machine hemmed edge is tucked out of sight under the fold at the top edge.
However the strip wasn't quite long enough, so I have ended up with a pieced hanging strip, giving it a nice thrifty Amish look. I might take advantage of the paler section and scribble on my name and the date for posterity.
