I’ve had a very indulgent day off in my sewing room. It’s taken my spare evenings and a few hours this week to get this far. This quilt will take a while as I want to get it right. This is the first quilt that I’ve made for me.
I want to get it finished before the end of November as that’s when Bonnie Hunter releases her free online tutorial for her annual mystery quilt. You can download the pdfs for a short while and then quilt at leisure.
I’m not great at sewing by artificial light so I’ll stop now and join some more blocks in the morning. I have 15 more blocks to make like this. I like to make all the component parts first and then just assemble the quilt. It’ll be easy to stitch in the ditch every 3 inches. By the way, I cook and do DIY in metric but always sew in imperial. Also, DB helps by cutting all the dog ears off my 3 1/2 inch blocks. The design for this quilt is Bonnie Hunter’s En Provence.
