Shall I share with you what is brightening my day? In spite of it now being tucked away in my spare bedroom...
It began life way back in April with the making of my first block and had me all pleased with myself at the precision I had achieved. Only another 48 blocks to go then...
I showed a sneak peak back here when I was interrupted due to running out of fabric.
I had already found some vintage-like fabric in Ikea that I knew would be great on the back.
Then there was mention of my sore arms here, when I was about to machine-quilt it. There was also a fair bit of unpicking to be done because of some unwelcome puckering. Bah!
I used some brightly coloured voile from my stash for the binding (always one of my favourite bits of quilt-making, choosing the binding).
In an unexpected dry spell, I even managed to lay it out on the deck to get the, ahem, full-frontal shot.
May I present the making of My First Queen Size Quilt:
I'll be making a couple of pillow cases with the scrap and then I will do the full reveal in situ. If these grey skies persist, that will happen some time soon because if they have brought anything positive at all, it is my sewing mojo firmly back in charge.
