Way back in mid September of last year I wrote a post titled "Where's my quilt Mum?" about a quilt I was making for my son. The poor boy was wondering when it would be finished. At that point the top was pieced and it was waiting to be quilted. Well, being the quicker worker that I am, nearly four months later it's finished and in use! I explain the block design I used here
|It's difficult to get a decent photo when it's breezy and your quilt holders arms are aching waiting for it to blow into the right position.|
I bought a lovely soft flannel for the back but surprise, surprise I didn't order enough so I added a panel of wonky cross blocks to make it big enough.
|The breeze didn't drop long enough for this one and that's a shadow bottom left, not a dirty mark!|
I did some straight line quilting as requested by my son, he didn't want anything more complicated. I did offer.
For those of you, who like me, love to see quilts made from more girly colours here's a quilt top I
made started during a recent sewing retreat. It's now in the queue to be finished.
Bye for now,
