I have learnt...

Using lots of little pieces of fabric also means lots and lots of sewing which uses a very lot of thread - leaving me with these.

One packet of smarties is not enough to see me through quilting and binding a quilt as big as this one, but now you can see how pretty my bowl is - a much appreciated and used gift from a very good friend. This bowl is the inspiration for my next round project coming soon to my table.

Sewing the binding on a quilt this big takes a long time. I am almost half way, can you see how neat that corner is? I am excited.

Wishing you all a lovely week with lots of creative opportunities. Happy Crafting

Pretty bowl - wish I had one! What were you thinking - only one packet of smarties? I don't think so. Hope you managed to get in further supplies to fortify you for the remainder of the project. Nice job on the binding, like the fabric choice.
