Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall



It’s been such a long time since I’ve done any sewing beyond piecing quilts, that it took me a week to figure out how to hem a prom dress.  It needed a narrow hem – easy enough – but I couldn’t use heat on the material, so it was a challenge.  Finally ended up using a super fine machine embroidery bobbin thread in the top and bottom to stitch each fold in place and then a slightly heavier thread for the final stitching.

After the dress, I decided to work on my Jared Takes A Wife top.  I stitched all of the star points and now I can’t do anything else until I cut more fabric. The green is going to be the sashing and the inner star points. There will be a narrow pink border between the sashing and the outer paisley border.

Before I do any more on JTAW, I’m going to finish the music baby quilt.
