Here is the quilt all done and bound ready for baby Ewan's nursery.
His room is yellow and brown - think baby giraffes and such. So I went with that colour scheme instead of my usual scrappy. Hopefully his parents will like it. I was going to take it today but they are out so maybe tomorrow. It is a surprise.
This week I have been working on my hexagons - getting some prepared and such.
I would love to have this box full of ready-to-go ones but as soon as I've done enough for a block I just have to sew them together. I have about 2 years work left on this - lol !
I have also been making some flying geese with a pack of fabric I bought off ebay some time ago. It is sort of shaded across the widths and comes in all colours of the rainbow. I have never found the perfect project for this and still don't think so either. These geese blocks are not doing it for me. One day I want to make an orphan block quilt and I'm thinking these will be in there somewhere.
A couple of months ago I started a Bareroots pattern called Log Cabin Sampler. I have added a couple of rounds today and prepared the next one. Tonight I want to stitch around these flowers and start on round 4. It is a stitchery one and I am looking forward to doing it. I plan to raid my overflowing scrap bag for this.
Think that's about it - rooms a mess again - whats new ?
Earlier in the week I was sorting through some magazines and came across a series quilt in Quilters Newsletter. I went online and printed foundation patterns for part 2 ready to sew when I had chosen colours. I found the magazine with part 3 in and put it aside ( there are just 3 parts ) and then began to look for part 1. Looked everywhere I could think of to no avail. Went to QN website to see the cover so I knew what I was looking for and you guessed it - don't have that one. Not sure how I missed it but am now in process of ordering back issue. I drove Jason mad muttering " it must be here somewhere" for days -lol !
Enjoy your weekend xx
