So after making 24 of them I have decided to call a halt for now and use up what I've made so far. I still have loads of scraps roughly cut to size so I will probably be making more at some point - just not now !
I have been quilting for about 4 years and although I have made many quilts - I will have a count up one day - there are still lots of things I haven't done and want to ! Included in this list are mitred borders and a viney applique. SO this quilt will be an experiment and will include those 2 things. Not sure if it will look right or not but I'm going to have a go.
Did my first mitred border today and although the little red inner border does not match exactly I am pretty pleased with it. Will get the other 3 corners done tomorrow and start the applique. I am going to hand sew the bias strip for the vine and then machine applique lots of leaves in different colours. I have done a little machine applique but not much so should be fun - there may be tears before bedtime - lol !
Lastly here is a photo of my DS - Patrick. He is such a good thoughtful boy and is quite interested in my blogging activities. He quite often comes and sits next to me on the bed at night and reads around the blogs on the laptop with me. He asked me the other day if there was a picture of him on my blog. So here it is. The car he is next to is not mine unfortunately - lol ! He has a bit of an obsession at the moment with fast cars and we came across this one on a day out. He was so excited to see it and knew everything from valve size and horse power and all sorts of things that went right over my head - lol ! And miracle of miracles we actually had the camera with us ! He is 10 years old and still my little boy for the time being ! Hormones haven't kicked in yet !
