I have been a bad blogger. Work has been hectic and sometimes posting comes a sad last to family and responsibilities.
Just because I have not blogged, does not mean I haven’t been working on projects on the side.
I am involved in a couple of Rainbow Charm Square Swaps (5” square piece of fabric). The first swap I am in, had me collecting purples, in 10 different fabrics. These I cut into 12 charm squares. I then sent them off, and this week my first rainbow parcel arrived. I quite quickly, joined with two more colours in a subsequent swap. This time, orange and yellow. I am eagerly awaiting those to be returned and then I will make a start on a scrappy rainbow quilt of some sort. I am still eying off all the rainbow quilt’s online to decide on a plan.
I have also got to quilting stage, a lap quilt out of my precious Verna fabric, with some Kona Ash. I have backed it in a yellow minkee, which has no dots!!! I was stoked to find it at a fabric store I don’t normally frequent.
Here it is after I finished basting ... on my wall! It is a tight squeeze for the width of fabric, but as I have spray basted, feel this will hold well. This minkee doesn’t feel as thick as the dot minkee, however I feel it will be perfect for this quilt. It is going to a very special lady … so I want to get it finished asap.
From the offcuts of this quilt, I have put together another top, which is smaller in size. It may be suited to a baby quilt, I am still deciding if I add borders, and how I will do this.
Annual leave has started again for me so hopefully I will have some finished projects to share shortly. I may even make a start on something with this bundle of goodness!
