Saturday sewing

P1070506

The last care quilt from last weekend is done :-)
Now I just have to wash the 3 quilts so they become soft and good and let the batting shrink a little (1%) so the new owner do not get a surprise when washing the quilt for the first time.
Now I can also start making the next 3 kits for new care quilts.
I decided I have to finish the kits before making new kits.

I have enjoyed making meshwork today.
The Japanese book , Meshwork with fabrics, has good diagrams, if you want to try it too :-)
I have not decided what to make from this piece yet, even if I have a couple of ideas.

I made my first meshwork more than 15 years ago, just after having seen a finished work.
I have in my collection a very old Clover bias tape maker.
I also had the pleasure of attending a class on meshwork the summer of 2008.
The strips I have used today are 1/2" wide finished.

Så flink du er med aksjonstepper. Dette ble flott.

The care quilt looks nice. And the meshwork looks amazing. It is like weaving I think? You will have to take the pins out of your work at one point, does it stay together than, the way it is now? I hope my question is not too complicated.
