Blogtoberfest - Day 21 - Quilting

After doing a machine quilting course at Frangipani Fabrics (taught by the lovely and very talented Stephanie Newman) I have finally plucked up the courage to actually quilt something at home!
I'm about 1/3 of the way through. I decided to try straight lines before attempting free motion quilting (although I'll give that a go with Matilda's christmas quilt). Next time I might make the lines a bit further apart but it's looking good (if you ask me).
The quilt? It's a stacked coin cot quilt (with pink sashing instead of white). Better get back into my sewing room and wind some more bobbins and get quilting!!
