It's working!!!! Resizing the photos has made uploading a breeze ;-) Thanks a lot for your help.
I wanted to share these quilted objects with you. You've seen them before but I love them so much that I cannot resist posting the photos again.
The banner you can see at the top was my first Yoko Saito quilt. I used a thick cotton batting and was wrong. A thinner polyester batting would have been better. Lesson learned!
The pencil case and sewing case were both fun to make. I learned to sew a zipper with these two projects. I love hand work!!! (I also enjoy working with my sewing machine, too)
As for the basket, I started it in class with Yoko. I must admit that I am very proud of it. This basket is even more beautiful in real. I have loved making the appliqué et quilting it. I turned ideas over in my mind several times before deciding how to make the lines on the inside fabric match perfectly.
This is the kind of projects that make you think that the sky is the limit!
I am trying to master the Japanese techniques. I feel comfortable with appliqué and quilting but I am still clumsy with the hand-piecing technique. But I am patient and willing...
For now, I work at finishing the top of a beautiful little quilt created by Nataliejo from l'Atelier Perdu. I will attach the different pieces of the top of the Quilt Me Club quilt (link on the right) this week and prepare a post about it ;-)
Not sure I will be able to post before Christmas but will as soon as I can.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas with mulled wine, cinnamon cookies and other seasonal pleasures ;-)
