It took me a while to decide on the quilting. I may still go back and put more radiating lines in between the existing ones. But I'm happy with the quilted fan, it will make a nice circle where four blocks meet. This is how it looks when I'm trying to come up with a quilting idea.
I have gone back and finished my grey knitted cowl, and I love this one too. The grey goes with everything and the seed stitch pattern appeals to my sense of order. It's a free pattern here. The sewn cast off edge is new to me, and makes a beautiful finished edge.
Mr 16 is taking me driving to Rylstone tomorrow.......he thinks he is making up driving hours.......I know I'm going to check out a new artisan wool shop called Convent and Chapel.
It's certainly good weather for being inside sewing and quilting. It was minus 2 when we took our poor frozen dog for a walk this morning, and yet it was a wonderful, brisk start to the day. And now I don't feel so guilty about apple pie for afternoon tea!
