Finishing the unfinished.....Episode 1.
A long, long time ago......
Nah, not really, but a while ago at the end of my quilt retreat, i started a green and pink post and rail from my birthday scrap bags-it has been languishing at a decidedly un-useful size so I played with it to baby quilt size, I also have been working with some of my chenille stash.
Why do I have a feeling that i will be saying, "I have been working with some of my chenille stash" when I am 85? Oh, well, this would be why!!!
Don't you just love Op shops!
Add another couple of pinks, a red and a green and you can start to see what I have collected-a lot are double as well. (I would actually love some white and I am willing to swap so yell if you can help.)
Anyway, I have been using some of the lemon, and added it to some Sanctuary charm squares and we now have 2 baby quilts.
How is a man supposed to eat!
The chenille quilt baby has 2 bigger sisters so I made them 2 of my 15 minute quilted bags, shrewdly utilizing more chenille stash! These are dead easy and my staple present for any girl aged 2 to 12. Yell if you want the easy instructions.
I may not be posting for a few days, not dying, just going for a romantic weekend watching V8 supercars drive around the city track in Adelaide with my favourite husband...kind of like letting Daytona cars out through the side gate to run free around the city. May not sound romantic but no kids, no cooking and grown up talk...not too shabby to me!
Note to anyone concerned: Don't bother robbing house, parents babysitting with dogs so not worth the effort!
Trying to work out what to take for the 12 hours in the car, last year I got heaps done on the Lone star I showed on the hay bales....what would be a fun project other than just bindings....?
Have a fun few days, I will! Tracey
