I have brought this quilt out again. I looked at my quilting and it wasn't as bad as what I thought but still I was not happy with it. So I have unpicked half of it. It is a bit disheartening but I feel it has to be done.
I have a few questions for you quilters out there. I want to make it bigger and was thinking about putting a border around the quilt that has a scalloped edge. I am not sure how you do this or does anyone have any other suggestions e.g a striped border, plain or what?
Another question is about the embroidery. I have a fear that once I wash the quilt the colours from the embroidery will bleed and the quilt will be ruined. Maybe I should take it out and put it in a cushion but I really like it in the quilt. I also didn't -wash fabrics so I pray that they won't run either.
So please help me!!! On another note you must check out this blog. It is oh so pretty and I just adore the colours red and blue. This is where I got the embroidery from.
Tomorrow I'm off to Dunedin Hospital with my daughter to get her tonsils and adenoids out. She is only 3 but fears the hospital so much already. She really doesn't want to go and she doesn't even realise she is having an operation yet. I know there will be lots of tears, probably on both sides!
