I’m still here, just hibernating during this bleak winter’s weather. Far too much time has been spent sitting in front of the heater in the lounge room.
A few weeks ago, after spending far too much time looking at Pinterest I felt the urge to make a quilt – Now! So, off I went to my little sewing area, which I will share with you shortly, and found some nice, bright, cheerful fabrics in the stash. Twenty five of them, to be precise. Oh, and some white homespun.
I then did lots of pressing and cutting. Next was a little sewing.
And some more cutting.
Then some more stitching. By the end of the afternoon I had this nice little pile.’'
By then I was about stitched out, so I played on the floor until I settled on a layout.
The next day, while I was still enthused, I stitched all the blocks together.
I must say that I am rather pleased with how it turned out. The best bit is that I didn’t have to use my quick unpick once. That would nearly be a first.
So far, everything came from the stash. However, I thought a cute backing was required so had to go shopping. I was finding it hard to pick anything, until I saw this fabric. There was just enough on the roll. Well, I think there is just enough. I haven’t double checked as yet. If not, I’ll be able to wing it. It’s a match made in heaven. Don’t the fabrics look lovely once they have all been folded properly, almost too pretty to put away….almost.
Hopefully, I will get to finish it off this weekend and will have it in the gift box in plenty of time for a certain little one to be welcomed into the world in a couple of months time.
