Harry's quilt. I've laid them out on the floor and they are now ready to sew together to make the quilt top. I have used 20 different fabrics in this quilt and wasn't quite sure whether to just randomly put them together or not. In the end I divided them up into 4 different groups of 5 fabrics which I then sewed in different combinations. It's a bit like doing a sudoku puzzle, doing this bit. I try not to have the same fabrics together at all in the same sequence. I dont' think I could ever explain my method, but it seems to work. Anyway, this is how it's looking on the floor.
I decided to include some whole squares of 4 of the fabrics as it seemed such a shame to chop them up completely. You can see them a bit better in this picture:
I love the black dog and I know Harry will too, and then how could I resist the hens?
It's looking pleasingly boy-like after the pink overload from Christmas! I'm wondering if a food-inspired name for it will spring to mind... Any suggestions?
Tracy suggested joining in NaBloPoMo's post every day for a month, so I thought, why not give it a go? It's a new year and I feel fresh and ready for new challenges. I'm hoping that by missing a day to start with isn't a bad thing...
