Also I do try and visit all your blogs and comment as much as I can. Never thought blogging would be this much fun.
Anyway I went to my group last night and gave Joan her quilt. She was delighted and so surprised. She kept thanking me and saying how quickly I had done it. She was thrilled with how well it came out as she wasn't sure about her fabric choices. It was much nicer in the flesh than my photos. I never mentioned before but I actually used a fleece backing as I found a piece that I had here that was just the right size and colour. Meant to be !!! It was a really thick fleece and quilted up ever so well. I used a big meander and it was lovely and snuggly.
Some-one asked Joan what she was going to do with it and she replied that although it was originally intended for a grand-daughter in Canada there was no way now that she was going to part with it. She says she is going to use it to keep her knees warm in the Winter. I mentioned she has arthritis so keeping her joints warm is a must.
Joan is a really lovely lady and I was so pleased that she was pleased - lol ! It was nice to do this for her. I told her my housework has been neglected this week as I wanted to get this done. That made her laugh !!
Anyway back to my own quilts now. Here is the picture of the next round of my medallion quilt. The little block in my last post was my trial one and here is what I was intending. I like it although my corner block points do not match exactly with it's neighbour but I can live with that. I like things to look nice but a few mis-matched points don't keep me awake at night. The only thing that does that are my frequent visits to spend a penny - lol !
I also made a few of these with the triangles I cut off. I am so proud of myself - when I think that before I knew better I used to throw my scraps away - I will try not to dwell on that - lol ! These measure 2 inches !
Not sure what to do with this next . . . . I need to think about it.
I am getting tempted by doing some more of those funny little zig zag blocks. Shall I or not ?
