Summer's Open Sandwich
is my food themed quilt, which was finished up in time for the meeting last night. Talking of which, the meeting was most interesting, with a guest speaker showing exactly how the Bali batiks she sells are made, and another showing fibres from a textile tour of India.
My quilt included raw edge applique over a layer of organza, french knots, hand and machine quilting.
This is the most machine quilting I've done on an article so far, and I was happy with the way it turned out (not quite as wavy as the picture looks.)
It's not a fabulous quilt, but it's done, used my ideas, and extended my skills so I'm very pleased.
