my insanity quilt progress.

I have started to join some of the flower border across the top now .and a little down the side .It's slow going but still enjoying the process . I've made heaps more of the diamonds but still a few to make yet. I do the different borders when I feel abit bored with a section to keep me motivated too. I mainly do abit  most nights in front of tv. The IQ page on Facebook helps  keep me me motivated .so many lovely the making and they are all so different. I'm detetmined to finish this one !...I'm hoping to have the top done next year....sometime ....I'll just keep sewing.!

Progress on IQ.

Well so far I have been going great !...really enjoying making these cute hexies ...This is the Insanity Quilt by Rhode Pearse ...she has just released the pattern forsale in her shop as the magazine is out of print now (2008)...I done about 42 diamonds so far I need to find some cream mix fabrics for the borders so I can start joining them up ...I need to do 158 diamonds and 64 flowers ....don't know how long this will take but a fair while I imagine ...I love a challenge ....I'm still doing Esther aliu's 'love entwined ' applique quilt too !...

my machine

This is a.pic of the husqavana machine I won at spotlight back in October 2013.  Its very basic but nice to sew with .I have started a rope bag using this as you need a 3 stage zig-zag stitch. I will put pics up later.
