Ever had a week where nothing seems to fall into place
on the quilting side of life??
Mine was last week!
First thing was after binding three quilts (one later in this post)
I had the great idea to play with solids, something I really don't do,
I decided to use the Crossroads block from
my dismal results are below, no reflection on the great instruction in
the book, just my me not concentrating.
They just were not me, my cutting of the curves
was way off too so I decided to revert to colourful pattered fabric.
Come in Tula Pink Zuma!
Bit of a disaster here too, top right, second row left and third
row right - didn't keep the blocks in the correct order, you can see what happened

Still not doing anything for me with the Zuma fabrics, I just don't want to
carry on making these but I'm not wasting the fabric, I'll make five more
blocks and have a large cushion.
Husband liked the solid blocks so with the addition of a dud
from mine he will have a large cushion as well.
On a happier note I delivered a quilt on Friday

finish but I took a couple indoors

Measuring 77" x 84" it was a devil to bind, I used a lovely
soft blue Spot from KF.
The quilt now has a good home and D loved it.
Later that afternoon I received a beautiful
display of flowers from her, here being inspected by
That's all from me right now, I'm spending some time trying to decide
which fabrics I may sell on at my fabric sale early August, I think
there may be a selection of solids and Zuma added to the mix!
Off to read your blog posts now and hope that all who are
