OK - here is what I've been doing whilst watching the Olympics. If you follow my blog you will know I started this a few weeks ago and here it is in all it's jumbly glory - lol ! I know this is not a lot of quilters thing but I REALLY love it. It contains one patch of every piece of fabric I own - 577 different fabrics. Actually make that 576 as I used one fabric twice for a bit of fun to see if anyone could spot it. I offered Patrick £5 if he could find it thinking there was no way but the little beggar got it - lol ! Serves me right... There were a couple of fabrics I really could not put in this as I dislike them a lot and it would have annoyed me to see them in it. A couple of new quilters at my group have looked on this with a) horror - as it is so busy and b) amazement - that I have so many different bits of fabric. One lady is making her very first quilt and has no stash at all. Haha - she will soon learn - lol !
This measures about 45 by 60 inches so far. Next I want to add borders to make it bigger. I am going to applique the sides onto long strips of fabric so I don't have funny shaped edges when it comes to binding. I may then add more borders - not sure yet.
Here are a few close-ups of some of the fabrics for a bit of fun. Anyone got any of these ? Click on picture for a closer look.
I have had a couple of no-reply commenters lately asking me questions and once I get a bit more organised - ie. when the kids go back to school I will do my best to answer them on here.
I am also doing a bit more of Jason's flying geese strips. They are paper-pieced and each strip takes about half an hour to make. I have roughly worked out I need 70 of these so don't expect any finish pictures anytime soon - lol !
Have fun !
