It all started on Saturday morning when the post lady knocked the door bright and early. I knew what she had for me as I had been waiting for a little something I had ordered.
Something I had wanted for a long time.
Like all quilting fabric in UK these are very expensive so I have never had one before. Doodling about on the net last week I saw http://www.fatquartershop.com/ had a sale on. When I realised I could get 2 shipped over for about the price I would pay for one over here I just had to do some clicking.
They are gorgeous and after a quick fondle I was on the computer looking for patterns to use them.
Then I got to thinking about all the other quilts I have in progress - many ! I wouldn't know where to start on counting them. Then I thought about all the fabric I have - enough to make a quilt for every person in Wales I should imagine. Then I thought about all the patterns I have and magazines with projects earmarked for " to-do" sometime and I got a little overwhelmed. I love my hobby and that's why like so many others I have so much of everything.
So, ignoring the jelly rolls for now I dug out one of several big plastic crates I have containing some UFO's and picked one that I would like to finish. It is one I started about 4-ish years ago. A very simple design but for some reason I appear to have gone mad when it came to borders. They are much more involved than the main bit of the quilt.
I had attached one side and the rest was all in bits.
So that's how I spent Sunday - trying to work out measurements and stuff. I have another border on now and next step is to make corner blocks.
Not sure about the size of this - wish it was wider. Funny when you come back to something how you wonder quite what you were thinking.
My quilt group has a finish-it-up day on Saturday and I'm hoping to get this ready for basting on the big tables there. If not I'm sure I'll find something else to take along - lots to choose from - lol !
Whilst working out measurements for this I rolled up my rug and stuck it on a chair. Wasn't too long before this happened.
Could not get him out for ages - silly Tizer.
See you soon xx
