Another month

Another week and another month have blown by and I just have time for a quick post this week...
 October's pages almost complete

Feeling in an illustrative mood  - it will evolve

I've cut all my pieces for the start of my C&G quilt.

Experimenting with the print I will put on the squares - the print blocks are made from foam stuck on mount board.

I added a bit of hand painting to the print - both acrylic paint.

I have quilted this piece ready to be made into a bag. Good practise as I'm very much a novice.  I managed to resolve the problem of skipped stitches in my free motion quilting by changing to a new and thicker needle thanks to this site The Free Motion Quilting Project. Leah Day seems to have covered every aspect of quilting and is a fount of knowledge.  She is obviously a workaholic and produces an unbelievable amount of videos and information.
Off to start stitching those block now.
Keep warm and dry!!
