Hello Dear Reader,
My quilt is filling my time and so is my next one!!! I’m collecting and cutting up lots of greens, blues and pinks for another day! I have something rather lovely in mind. Today, I sliced up a shirt which I got for 20p from a jumble sale last year and never convinced DB to wear (too dull)
I’ve also sliced up two more pillow cases to add to my red, white and blue quilt. I still have a one side of a quilt cover to use up yet so I have more than enough fabric for this project.
I remember buying my quilting equipment two years ago and promising myself that I would get really good use out of it. I think I’m living up to that.
Here’s pile of homemade ‘jelly rolls’ or 2.5″ strips to anyone else. The red and white gingham will edge my current quilt, the pink, blues and greens in the middle are for a project I have in mind and the darker greens and blues at the bottoms haven’t got a purpose yet! They may become patchwork chair covers (pinched the idea from Superscrimpers).
The blue squares that I cut today will form structural blocks in my quilt design. I might sound as if I know what I’m doing, but I promise you, I’m making it up as I go along. Have you ever made something, that wasn’t really that well planned, but turned out OK in the end?
Love Froogs xxx
