You may remember that a friend and I have a bit of a Miniature Challenge theme going on
|each square finishes at half an inch!|
|a bit of progress|
After much stitching - and unpicking - We have finished the top!
|how did that happen?|
But the top is done and just the quilting to go.
Meanwhile a call from my friend who works for Makower asking if I had time to make up one of their samples. Me -- Time -- Of course I would love to do it! (what am I saying!!!)
|This is the quilt|
So after cutting 300 x 2" squares, 100 x 1 1/2" squares and goodness knows how many one and a half inch strips, I got down to sewing them all together.
|working till way past daylight|
|neat little prints|
|strip piecing the little beauties|
|block measures 6 1/2"|
Off to put the borders on them in a bit.
AND sorting out a request from a dear friend who wants a baby quilt with a Police theme for a new baby due to be born in a couple of weeks. ( They know for nine months! how come the request comes with a close deadline!!)
BUT -- I have had quite a bit of fun sorting out some appliqué images and designing this quilt. I will show the progress once I have got past the paper stage.
Back to The Confetti Garden quilt. Only today to get on with it this week as we have an Australian group visiting the shop on Wednesday, and I am working at the NEC on this stand on Thursday Friday and Sunday - in the shop Saturday so not much spare time this week
Hey Ho - It's good to be busy - Yes???
