|block completed and quilted|
|Bit bright, but that's the look I want...|
I have also made a baby quilt. As I don't really know the family I have just made a quilt that I think a little boy would love to drag around the floor. For this quilt I found the idea of yachts on the Pinterest site (I am a bit addicted). I planned the yachts, then just kept adding blocks of colour. The backing was also pieced with different size pieces. This was another first for me, I usually have a plan of what I want to do, then get on and make it. Nothing was planned but I really was happy with the final result.
|I am very happy with this|
|Love the back too|
You know that we have been decorating rooms, and the sewing/office room was next on the list. The worst thing about this room is all the 'stuff' I collect needs to be boxed up and stored until the painting has been done. I think it must have taken almost as long to clear the room as it did to paint.
Room before painting...
Voilà! This is how it looks now.
|Bright isn't it ???|
I think we have been in the doldrums with the weather for so long, that I needed my rooms to be bright and cheerful and they are certainly all bright.
Before I forget, I must show you this miniature quilt. I have shown you it before, but now I have finished the binding, and I am really pleased with how narrow that looks. There are 198 blocks in this little darling, and yes, I must be mad.
See you next time.
