I got carried away with the little zig-zag blocks. Some of the pieces in this I've had hanging around since I started quilting. Only 4 years but I'm fed up of seeing them - lol ! However after making this there are still a few of them lurking about. Bad fabrics never die I'm sure !! I bought a lot of fabric from Ebay in the early days and quite a few of them are a bit suspect.
Anyway when I got to the borders I was determined to get them done. Very often this is where I stall. I think I am borderly-challenged.... Because I already had some squares and rectangles cut that is what I used and I like the effect. I have tons of that Moda purple fabric so that went in too. I have enough to use for the back too although don't know when I will get round to quilting it.
Once that was done I decided to make a little quilt for a change. Keep getting sidetracked and making unintentional quilts - lol !! Don't know what it is but my quilts always turn out bigger than I planned..Anyway I am doing some paper piecing with little itty-bitty pieces. Looky at this mess -
With a bit of luck I will get some more done on this today but I have a distraction.
Poor Patrick was sent home from school yesterday feeling grotty. Griping pains in his tum and a really sore throat so I think he's coming in for something. He's just started reading the Harry Potter books so I will try and get him to lie quietly and read.
It's a gorgeous Autumn morning here - the grass is lovely and frosty and the sun is out. Beautiful weather and I love it. Roll on the dark nights !!
