The Argyll Quilt

The Argyll Quilt
40" x 42"
In Navy and White Triangles, cut at 5"
with a red machine patterned stitch
as you can see it it totally sewn as a free hand line!
and never again do I want to pick such a small machine stitch again
1 red cotton reel later, breaking approx every other diamond
as you can see, and about 3 boring hours
Navy and white candy strip binding from my shop
and that STITCHING
I do love the suilt don't get me wrong
I also loved doing the argyll diamonds

I can see this in all sorts of colours, pinks and lemons for girls.
Turquoise and lime for boys.
Just never ever doing fancy machine stitching again
I will have to come up with something else.....
Oh and forgot, backed in a fab red polka dot.


  1. Wow! I love it (and the machine stitch - sorry!), it's beautiful :)

  2. That's fantastic! I think it would look just as lovely with a plain straight stitch, too. A heavy one. :)

    1. Thanks Giddy, I think the same too for the stitch line), I am not giving up on this type quilt, I could become a regular one too try and sell but in all the different colours (but we shall see!).


I love to read all you comments, ideas and things that may even help out!
