I'm not sure what has got into me, maybe the cold weather? finally finishing a UFO and getting a great feeling or just nothing on TV to watch but Ive been glued to my machine. Christmas quilt top is nearly done.
After I got all the bits out of the zippy bag I got all confused, see the pattern was in my head and I hadn't written it done. So after thinking for a while it all came rushing back. Each mini block is 6 inch square so each large block is 18 inch square. There is supposed to be nine of them, however for some reason I had only cut enough for 7 1/2 big blocks! Who knows what I was doing. I was a bit worried that it would look like a quilt on crack with all the colours, stars and flying geese, but so far I'm pretty pleased.
And here is Rachel's quilt top complete!! I used a jelly roll of Swanky from Moda and have enough left over to make a couple of throw pillows to match. Just waiting for some batting and backing fabric to arrive. The backing is green ( Rachel's choice) and will use the same green for the binding.
See "on a roll" I even know what I am doing for the two baby shower quilts, my aunts birthday quilt and a surprise quilt. I must be ill :)
Oh and my beautiful friend Rowena has got us some tickets to see Lenny Henry in Othello in London in two weeks time. How exciting, I'm studying the text for my A Level so Ill know exactly whats going on :)
