I have to quilt it and then put the pocket on the front. I am using a new toy called the Supreme Slider. I ordered it from Leah Day. She is my machine quilting mentor. Check out her site! She puts up videos almost everyday, all about machine quilting.
Here is the slider:
And the piece that I was practicing on, with verrrrrrrrrrrrry bad tension…but fixed that!
Here are some of my neat tools for applique:
The bottom white mat is for a cookie sheet but works wonders and is see through for the pattern. The coloured ones are from the Dollarama (costs $2) and they work great. And the pure white one is a real applique pressing mat. Not to get crackin’ (actually, I already have but can’t show).
And here are two yo-yo ornaments I made for a guild workshop:
I used a button at the bottom and beads between the yo-yos. Cute.
Off to finish the wallhanging!
