I have finally cut all my Ginger Blossom FQs and have them mostly stitched together. I am making 'Sassy Sixteen' quilt pattern with them. Normally I try to have some some of pattern or arrangement in my fabrics/quilts but this time I could not be bothered with the worry of sorting them all out and rearranging; I just wanted to get stitching! So dd 5 yrs put them into a random pile (with some of my help so I didn't end up four fabrics all together!) so I cold get stitching. I'm a little nervous awaiting the final result of my scrappy look quilt, but excited too!
I also cut out the Sheep Quilt for ds-almost3yrs. lovely colours in this one. Kookaburra Cottage. dd6.5yrs sorted out the squares last night so I was able to stitch together the first stage of the nine patches. I will press these this morning and hopefully finish putting this quitl together today, apart from the applique. I am making the quilt a bit bigger, by one set of ninepatches wider and taller (terminology???). I would like it to be a bit bigger again but have no more of the wheat pinstripe left.
Late last week I worked on my christmas ornament for Christine of Aunties Quaint Quilts http://auntiesquaintquilts.blogspot.com/ . This is an ornament swap that was on Sarah's blog http://sarahsprimtreasures.blogspot.com/ . I have most of it done, but need some help with a final stage. I hope Christine likes it; this is my first swap.
Can anyone tell me how to post hidden? links instead of keying out the whole web address???
I am still halfway through quilting 'Happy Days' in Fresh Cut fabrics. procrastinating a bit here; mostly due to not feeling like I am doing the quilt justice with my quilting. So rather than rush through and be unhappy forever I am leaving it until the deisre to quilt it comes; I am expecting to be at it again in the next week.Bec xxx
