My scrap quilt is done - right to a finish. Hurray ! I didn't want another UFO lurking about - I have far too many of them already. I started appliqueing them circles onto a nice cream background fabric but after doing 5 of them realised it wasn't doing it for me. Years ago I bought a sample pack from Ebay of a sort of shaded spotty stuff. Each piece went from light to dark of a certain colour and had a gold spot printed on. Every so often I would try to use a bit of this but it never seemed to work. Anyway I dug out the pack and just cut it up and began putting my circles on this instead - much better.
A quadruple strippy border went on too.
I wanted a nice bright blue binding for this but didn't have enough of anything right. A little trip to Abakhan Fabrics was called for. I got my blue but hadn't planned to buy another 17.5 yards of other fabrics but that's what happened - lol !
When Patricks friends come for a sleepover they tend to doss down in the living room as it is much bigger than his bedroom. This quilt will be just right as an extra for his 13 yo mates to sleep under. Patrick is interested in Aliens and unexplained occurences such as crop circles so in Patricks honour this will be called Crap Circles - really I need to get a life - lol ! My family think I'm crackers :-)
As soon as it was done one of my 3 cats made a beeline for it and slept on it for hours. Thumbs up from Kasper.
I am coming up to my 3 year blog-birthday and have a little something planned.
Take care xx
