I've listened to and heeded sage advice from my quilting muse Pam. She is my inspiration, she makes the best quilts I've ever seen.
I've watched several quilting for beginners and the stupid on the good old tinternet. The most useful being quilting for the stupid beginner because that's what I am and need! Although the truth is I made the stupid bit up - just added it for comedy purposes!
I found this one quite easy to follow. If any of you have any more tried and tested ones to recommend, go ahead. I'm all ears!
As soon as I hit publish I'm off to slice up an old pillowcase to practise!
The after SATs party was a success. One parent provided us with a bouncy castle which went down a storm. I made cakes, getting up at the crack of dawn to have them ready for school!
Ooo Suzanne, I tried your top tip about the baking tray. One friend commented on my 'lovely even rise' on my buns!
Best buns I ever made!
Well, it's a sunny day, I braved it with shorts and had a frothy coffee earlier out in the garden, but it was bloody cold, ( trusty watch says 12C ) so I'm quite content to go slice up fabric ( and hopefully not my fingers ) in my craft room!!
I still can't get over the fact, I have a craft room!
Lots of love from
