WOYWW 200 – amazing!
Well, I am still working on hand-sewing the binding of the playmat quilt but am nearly done. I am trying a butted binding rather than a mitred one, so that is new for me. And in the end I decided it was less the light that was my problem and more my aging eyes, so I ended up buying these.
Amazingly, they really do help, so long as I am focused on the sewing about a foot away! If I look up, I am in a blurry, hazy world. But I am confident I will finish this up today! I like how the centre turned out, although I sort of wish I had done the frame in black. I thought the yellow would be light and bright but I think the black might have really set it off.
I had a small scrap of the smiling sunflower fabric so I used my Grand Calibur and some Nestie circles to cut out a few and appliquéd them on with a little blanket stitch. Appliqué is NOT my forte!
There yo have it – just the top and bottom edge to do – YAY!
I think it turned out quite sweet. Hope someone likes it!
Happy WOYWW 200, y’all!
