Through the microscope

Quilting ideas please!

I’ve made a few simple microscope cosies now but to be honest I’m getting a bit bored of making simple ones. I want to make something a bit more interesting.

I’m thinking of either a strippy quilted microscope cosy or a plain one with a seminole zig-zag around the bottom. I’ve done seminole before: it’s a simple technique and looks great. Maybe a black or teal cosy as I have done previously but with a rainbow coloured zig-zag of seminole to represent the visible light spectrum.

All ideas welcomed.

For the rest of the week i shall be playing wth microscopes. I have spent far too long restoring paintwork and making them look lovely and not enough time actually looking down them. It’s high time i used them for purpose!

I hope the puddle (my husband’s idea of what passes for a pond) is teeming with life. Let’s have a look…
