Let's start off with the new -
I've finished sewing the top of the quilt for our 5yr old grandson.
The weather has been wet and windy so I just managed
to pick a break in the rain this morning to throw
this top over the bench seat - excuse the weeds!
Four blocks across and six down each 12" finished, 1" finished sashing.
His bed is not quite as long as a full size so we've ended
up with the Safari print borders just on the sides.
I wanted something bright for the sashing but not too bold given
the bright solid strips, luckily I came across 3/4 yard of fabric which must have
been in my stash for around 15 years!
New Kaleidoscope blocks -
and I need to get these and the others on the wall to check how they look so far.
New fabric -
it's many years since that I first fell for solid fabrics,
the book on Amish quilts had just been released by Roberta Horton and
I was hooked. It was about time I bought a few new ones I reckoned and
here are three new fat quarter bundles. My preference is for the long quarters
but quite often buying online requires you go with the pre-cuts or
buy a half yard if you like the full width.
Now onto the old -
my version of Midnight at The Oasis, pattern by Jen Kingwell, the photo is on the dark side I'm afraid,
the rain and dark skies are back!!
Some of you will have seen this before when I took part in the QAL, I had a
nine patch border but didn't like it so that's been removed and one day this week
I need to sit down and work out my next two rounds.
Pulling this piece out I had quite a shock when I realised the number
of WIPs I had, plus quilts waiting to be quilted, so better get my act together
and get busy!!
Enjoy your week - happy quilting.
