Do you remember 2 posts ago I showed you the photos of the Hearts class I took at Retreat? ( Ooey Gooey Hearts by Natalie Murdoch ) Well I have completed the single bed size top!
Now that is fast. Fast for me anyway. I think I know why; partly because I have been able to sit at it for a couple of afternoons and just sew. Secondly ( stop laughing you lot ) it is all done on the machine....unusual for me.....
I don't care for that name for a quilt so I will call mine " Mended Hearts." ( 234 of them! )
Tomorrow DH has an eye appointment in the city so I will go too and get the batting I need to complete this.
There are several firsts here for me...... first quilt I have made so fast. First time I have ever used raw edge in anything....( it will turn the edges into chenille eventually; more quickly if it is washed ). First quilt that I have sewn entirely on the machine ( I intend to quilt it myself on the machine too ) That could be interesting!
Good News. The brix (sugar levels ) on the kiwifruit shot up over the weekend and is way in now. ( over 7% soluble solids ) The man on his quad bike ( the" official," sampler ) came this afternoon and collect 100 fruit sample from all the blocks to do the dry matter test. So things are moving along there. Yippee!
