Back in 1988, I went to the first NSW Quilt Guild's Quilt Symposium held in Armidale NSW. It was the first of its kind and a group of us spent four days(??) doing various classes from a wide range of tutors.
One of the classes I did was machine quilting - using a walking foot - we had to pre-prepare a panel and in the class we quilted. This was all before fabric markers that vanished, so it seems we marked in pencil. I finished the panel at the time and it has been sitting / hiding ever since.(One interstate move and one house move)
In 2011 (I think) I joined up with Sew Its Finished and it was to be one of the projects that I completed that year. When the time came I couldn't find that dratted piece anywhere...(must have had a "tidy up" binge!!)...So I found another project.
Finally, it's a cushion......Glad to have it off the list.
