|This is the layout I chose|
As the blocks are quite 'busy' I have mainly quilted 'in the ditch' so nothing special there, but I knew what I wanted to do in the sashings and my new machine had just the stitch I needed. Unfortunately I didn't get a close up, but it is 'what I would call' a serpent stitch, and it does the trick of anchoring the thin strip of batting in the 1" sashing. I think I am now planning on a plain cream boarder, then perhaps use the scraps of the brighter fabrics to finish it off. I have to wait until the 20 September for the next class and for Jan to show me how she would add a wider border.......

|That's it done and dusted|
I have also been working on that baby quilt, and thoroughly enjoying it, but it has come to a bit of a halt as I have run out of thread. Still its something I can show you next time.
