I keep looking at these and wondering where I want to go with them.
I love how this has turned out so far, but can’t decide on whether to add a bit more and turn it into another doll’s quilt or keep making more of these and turn it into a lap quilt.
It’s amazingly easy to stitch. I’m so tempted to keep going around and adding more to it and then perhaps have it as a lap quilt.
Both have been sitting for ages and are, in fact, being used as pieces for an Inklingo demo by another quilter this weekend. I think when they come back I’ll make a concerted effort to finish them off somehow or another.
In the meantime, I have been working on a Christmas gift for a friend made of diamonds and hexagons and other shapes and it’s turning out quite nicely. No pictures though, as I know she reads this.
Strippy shabby is quilted! I heard from the machine quilter this weekend and it’s finished! So it should be home sometime in the next couple of weeks. I guess I had better start getting the miles of binding ready . Perfect timing too — the evenings are getting cooler, so it will be quite nice to be sitting with that quilt draped over me as I put the binding on.
We are having gloriously warm fall weather — days in the low to mid 20s (Celsius) and nights in the low to mid teens. It’s absolutely perfect. I wish the entire year could be like this and we could pass on winter altogether. Next weekend (our Thanksgiving weekend) I think we will drive up a bit north of here to see the leaves as they are generally quite glorious.
Oh, keep on it! Look forward to see what you make of these! Love the seven sisters blocks in your previous post! But then again, I love blue – combined with white, orange or any other colour :o)And I wanted to say thank you for your sweet comment on my blue and white SBS swap quilt top!
