A new day.
Okay, I think I am over it....especially thanks to all my counsellors!! Pat yourselves on the back and we will get on with the nature of this blog, which is to find the good things in daily life....and look at quilts!!
With that in mind we will have a look at my sister's quilt,
I was late leaving for her birthday after staying up far too late, and didn't have time to wrangle calves or sheep or kangaroos or anything really as a photo backdrop-so I went for the old reliable poultry who will do anything for a tub of scattered wheat!
For those of you who remember, this was from my op shop shirt binge a few months ago. The blades were a design idea that I thought may look alright and were added to each block before turning it into the 4 block units. The red sashing seems to have broken it up a little and I think I am happy with it, I put flannel on the back and light wool wadding in the centre so it should be nice and cosy for cuddling toddlers and feeding babies in the middle of the night.
And because I dared grumble last post I thought I had better show you my WIP wall, well okay, it isn't actually a work in progress wall, more WIP sheep. (yes, it's Spring!)..and much cuter than my boring wall!
This houndstooth quilt needs to stop being a flimsy...I wonder if I could get away with it for winter 4 seasons quilt swap quilt??? No, bit big and even though houndstooth should really only be worn in winter I am not sure that makes it a wintery quilt! I do have some ideas for the swap, and so i should as I need to mail next week,- make me share them next post!! Have a great day...and a big thanks!! (I even got a call from Western Australia in consolation! Thanks Suse!) Tracey
