Actually I've had two slow Saturdays since my last post!
I've been fiddling about trying to decide what I want to make a
start on next, twice decided and then twice changed my mind.
I eventually made the decision to start on Green Diamonds from
'Quilts in Ireland'
pictured here in an earlier post.
Here are the first few diagonal rows
and I don't know what's happened with the colour as it's much brighter than this!
I'm trying the new Blogger set up, maybe it's a problem here.
You might also pick up that I've begun a little un-stitching
on the LH side where the half diamonds come up to the full ones.
They don't seem to be fitting as they should.
After checking and re-checking it seems that the template in the book
may be slightly out, so I'll draw up another one and try again.
They're all cut on straight of grain so that's not the issue.
A pack of KF stripes bought a while ago to make up a very simple
quilt for our eldest son, a free pattern from Free Spirit,
I'm not too sure about the lilac/peachy stripe, but it does look good in the
photo of the quilt.
Sorting out a heap of fabrics in a basket I pulled out
the fabrics below giving me ideas for another
I have quite a few on my list of
'would like to make' so there's another decision to be made.
I'm finding a little time here and there hand quilting
my Paintbox small quilt, only a few more blocks to go now!
Unfortunately I didn't go with my usual brand of thread and the one
I chose pulls quite a lot going through the fabric and quilting is taking longer
than I had hoped.
Once again the colour is showing darker than my original photo!
Let's hope the photo of the last rose in my garden is true to colour
and yes it is!!
Leaving you now with a quote I came across in one of my books.
Love the beings of the world equally and universally.
The Universe is One.
See you all soon
