Weekly Pickles


Two More Pickles

I've been reading up on making single fold bias tape. That's what gets sewn around the pickles before they are appliqued to the background.  I've never made bias tape but want to give it a try.  Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? 


Speaking of tricks this fine Halloween morn - 
 Happy Birthday to my oldest granddaughter, Isabelle,  who celebrates her 13th birthday today.
  Time flies.

I can't wait to see the look of this quilt together!! What a lesson on sewing curves! So brave!

Applique with single fold bias tape. That's interesting.

Happy Birthday to your granddaughter. Have you tried a bias tape maker? They make it so much easier.

I've made bias tape before, just a little fiddly not that difficult.
Pickle dishes and a birthday and Happy Halloween!
Have a good day Cathy.

Happy birthday, Isabelle! A name I nearly had, Dad's favourite, but Mum decided to go with the name my two older sisters had chosen, Linda. I love those pickle blocks.

I love those pickles!
I used to make bias tape for appliqueing celtic knots. I used a safety pin pinned to my ironing board cover to channel the edges of the fabric - same principle as those bias-tape makers but almost free. Now that I have bias-tape makers, I highly recommend them!

Love your pickles! I have never heard of binding before sewing them down. Interesting! I am not one to make a quilt pattern twice, but when it comes to a pickle dish I sure could. It is such a wonderful pattern! Happy Halloween

Love the latest pickles - they're almost rosy pickles!

These are great. I'll be interested to see how your bias tape works out; it's not a method I've come across.
