Faking it!

Yesterday I took my sewing machine off to my friend 'blogless Di's' place where we spent a fun, and reasonably productive day (as productive as you can be when you're constantly laughing, and contending with two adorable golden retrievers and a schnoodle underfoot looking for cuddles and attention!)

Di is making an eye-catching baby's quilt with appliqueed teddy bears, in bright zingy colours, and we chose colours and cut out the fabrics for the corner squares of the border. I hope she'll let me post a photo of her quilt here when it's finished because it really is starting to look spectacular.

Of course I took advantage of having a few hours away from my Dear Someone to work on his "Chocolat" quilt in secret. I'm loving this cheater fabric! See what a difference my simple stitching makes. I just used my walking foot to puddle slowly around each hexagon shape and - voila! - fake pieced hexagons!
