A little secret.

I do indeed want to let you into a little secret.

When I started the Mystery BOM off I used my trusty Bernina. Half way through, about block six I think, I bought my self a new machine (a Janome) and the rest of the blocks were done on my new machine. On the 9th block I could not make out WHY my oblong blocks did not fit as in block 5. It was altogether smaller, yes indeed a lot smaller, so that is why I am having to make my wall hanging into two separate little wall hangings.

This is it all together as one long Wall hanging.

As our ceilings are very low in our little cottage, two smaller hangings are better for us. Now it is time to start the quilting. I have chosen to hand quilt mine. I started yesterday, it was such a grotty day(weatherwise) but just the kind of day to sit in front of the fire and hand quilt.

Hand quilting in progress.
Having told you my little secret, you might want to do yours as two separate little wall hangings...

The Elfin Way Quilt is now finished, though it does still need a label. So here are the next two stitchery blocks as promised.

and last but not least the finished quilt, with strange sun light shining through.

Back to the quilting..

Keep safe and keep stitching......... Doti...
