Last week I wanted to do some free-motion-quilting. Except for my shoulders, who get always tense, I find quilting very relaxing. I don't even need to think very much!
I quickly made a simple sandwich, added a hole for a bag handle, so I could use the piece of quilt later for a bag. Including the time I needed to sew-turn-iron the handle hole it took me only half an hour to do the first piece. Fun, fun! Until I found out, that I sewed a flap on the backside...I corrected it quickly, but after it took me until today to make a second piece.
Quilting little pieces (about 40x45cm) like that is just fun! They are moving so easily under the machine!
To make a bag out of them was a quick job too. I used bias tape to debaste the inner seams. For the top edge I cut a bias binding from the outside fabric and added it with the machine.
Beside that bag I made today some very yummy brownie cookies to welcome the weekend and the winter vacations of the kids.Bon week-end pour vous aussi,
